Beyonce "Love on Top" Gold Suit for Sale

The gold suit worn by Beyonce in the “Love on Top” video is now on sale to benefit charity.

The suit, a Douglas Hannant silk two-piece, will be a part of the Park Avenue Garage charity sale in Manhattan.  Money from the sale will benefit the charity New Yorkers for Children.

Famously worn in the dance sequence of the “Love on Top” video, the suit jacket has an interesting bit of pop culture history, as its sleeves were ripped by Beyonce while shooting the video. The sleeves have of course been sewn back on, and the jacket has been priced at $750–a real deal compared to the original price of $5600.

According to the New York Post, the sale will be open to the public on Friday and Saturday, and will be held in Chelsea.

It’s been a busy week for Beyonce, who was spotted attending little sister Solange’s concert in New York earlier this week at the Bowery Ballroom. Beyonce was seen entering the Ballroom rocking a patterned dress and nude colored heels. She attended solo, as Jay-Z skipped the concert to watch his Brooklyn Nets play the New York Knicks.

At the concert, Solange performed songs from her new album, True, which has been described as an “eclectic mix of 80s tunes with African percussion influences.”  In addition to supporting her sister’s album, Beyonce has a lot to celebrate.

Just a few days before Solange’s concert, Beyonce announced her new $50 million Pepsi deal. The $50 million deal will include typical channels of advertising like commercials and print ads. In addition, Pepsi has also pledged a multimillion-dollar “creative content development fund” to support Beyonce’s artistic endeavors.

“Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve,” Beyonce said in a statement. “As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.”  The Pepsi ads will debut alongside her much hyped Superbowl performance, where she will reportedly perform both old and new material.
