Gai xinh - Beauty girl 12

The more than 60 pieces of wardrobe, featuring Kempner's style and chic over the past 40 years, were auctioned to benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The majority of items sold for between $200 and $800.

Kempner, who died in 2005 from emphysema, worked for both Harper's Bazaar and French Vogue, and was an international representative for Christie's.

A Louise de la Falaise short fur jacket with black satin lining fetched $11,250, the highest price at the auction, while two black leather, two-piece ensembles including a Calvin Klein sweater and Skin jeans, brought the lowest price of the sale at $125.
