Olivia Newton-John has urged Gigi Hadid to buy her original Sandy costume from the film Grease to help raise funds for the singer’s cancer centre in Australia.
The Xanadu singer is auctioning off a treasure trove of movie and video costumes to raise funds for her Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, and after spotting the model in a Sandy replica for Halloween, she’s asking her to cough up for the real deal.
“I saw a picture of Gigi Hadid, who is one of the most gorgeous girls, and she was wearing my outfit,” Olivia told Access Daily. “So I sent her a message. I said, ‘Gigi, buy the original. You can get it at the auction!'”
The wardrobe items from the films Grease and Xanadu and the Physical music video are set to go under the hammer at an upcoming Julien’s Auctions event, which will be held at The Standard Oil Building in Beverly Hills and online at juliensauctions.com during the company’s Icons & Idols sale at the weekend.
The highlight of the auction will be the iconic black leather jacket and skintight pants Olivia wore as Sandra Dee for the climax of Grease, when she performed You’re the One That I Want with John Travolta.
Other items from Grease include Olivia’s original script from the film, her custom-made 1950s-inspired petal pink point d’esprit lace gown she wore to the 1978 premiere in Los Angeles, and a custom ‘Pink Ladies’ jacket presented to her by the film’s cast and crew.
