Newton-John famously had to be sewn into her clingy black high-waisted pants she wore to sing You’re the One That I Want and We Go Together alongside onscreen leading man John Travolta.

Both the jacket and the pants are expected to bring between $100K and $200K, but the British-born, Australia-raised blonde hopes they’ll fetch $1M from a ‘billionaire buying them for their daughter.’

Other Grease items up for auction includes the four-time Grammy winner’s original script (expected to fetch $2K-$4K) and the pink ‘prom dress’ she wore to the premiere.

Olivia’s pink-dotted strapless Fleur Thiemeyer lace gown (expected to draw $3K-$5K) features a boned bodice with a sweetheart neckline, full ruffle-trimmed skirt, and a matching sheer stole.

And while Sandy herself never scored a monogrammed Pink Ladies bowling-style jacket, Newton-John is auctioning off the one (expected to get $2K-$4K) later presented to her by the cast and crew.

Her next movie, Robert Greenwald’s roller-disco flick Xanadu, might have been a box office bomb in 1980, but it’s now beloved as an eccentric cult classic.

‘I’m so lucky to have appeared in [Grease and Xanadu] that are still loved!’ the LGBTQAI advocate told Instinct Magazine in April.

‘My publicist tells me that both films are shown in gay bars, and I get such a kick out of that.’

‘A portion’ of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in Melbourne.

Newton-John spent her 70th birthday last September undergoing radiation treatment at the centre after her breast cancer returned and metastasised to her lower back in 2017.

Last year, the mother-of-one released a memoir called Don’t Stop Believin’ as well as a greatest hits album called Hopelessly Devoted, and she also acted in Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in 2017.
