Madonna is also pictured wearing these jeans during a night out with Warren Beatty, circa January, 1990 and prior to a concert during the Blonde Ambition Tour at Meadowlands Arena, New Jersey, 21 June, 1990. She also appeared on the front cover of People magazine wearing the jeans, 11 December, 1989.
According to the designer of these jeans, Leslie Hamel, Madonna asked her to make a matching pair for Sandra Bernhard for the Don't Bungle The Jungle event. Keith Haring also attended the benefit evening and, according to Hamel, it was during this evening that Haring added his doodle to the jeans and signed it.
Christie's would like to thank Leslie Hamel for her assistance in cataloguing this lot.
