Is Sandy’s Grease look the one that you want? Well if so, you’re in luck as she is auctioning off one of Sandy’s iconic costumes from the movie.
The outfit was made famous in that final scene in Grease when the seemingly innocent Sandy decides to explore her bad girl side.
Newton-John starred in the musical Grease in 1978 alongside John Travolta, she famously had to be sewn into the all-black outfit which she appeared in during the final scene.
The leather jacket and skin-tight trousers have now been put on the market by the much-loved actress, through Julien's Auctions.
The auction is of course for a good cause, it will raise money for Newton-John’s cancer treatment centre called the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.
The centre is based in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. The cause is close to her heart as the actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, suffering a relapse in 2013.
Sadly, two years ago Newton-John was then diagnosed with stage four breast cancer for a third time. She was undergoing treatment in March.
So, how much can we expect for these items to collect under the hammer?
According to the Metro, the items - which are being sold separately - are expected to earn around $200,000 (£157,000).
If you don’t think you’d be able to squeeze into those pants, there is no need to worry -- the Australian actress is also auctioning a number of other items from the film.
Newton-John is auctioning off her original script for the film which is estimated at $4,000 (£3,150) and also a custom-made Pink Ladies jacket. If only it came complete with a friendship with Rizzo and Frenchie.
She is also auctioning off the stunning pink dress that she wore to the film's premiere, many moons ago.
If you want to get involved then you will either have to head online or book a trip to Beverly Hills where the auction will take place on November 2, this will come after the items go on exhibit in the US and Ireland.
Better starts saving those pennies, stud.
