Olivia Newton-John “Grease” costume sells for £300,000

The stunning skintight black outfit worn by Olivia Newton-John in Grease has sold for £300,000.

The trousers and leather jacket were among auction 500 lots sold to raise money for her cancer charity.

Ms Newton-John, who played Sandy, wore the costume for the 1978 film’s finale song “You’re The One That I Want”.


The duet with John Travolta became one of the biggest selling singles of all time – hitting 15 million copies.

The jacket sold for £188,000 and the trousers for £125,000.

The buyer opted to remain anonymous, but said:

“I’m proud to be the owner of this incredible piece of pop culture history.”

A poster signed by the cast of Grease fetched £50,000.

Proceeds from the California auction went to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre.

Ms Newton-John was diagnosed with cancer some years ago.
