Carey Mulligan’s custom-made Prada frock topped many a best dressed list for this week’s Met Ball. And now, if you’re lucky, it could work the same sartorial magic on you.
The actress and Met Ball co-chair, has put her silver and gold metal paillette dress up for sale on eBay, with a starting bid of $500.
Of course, Mulligan isn’t getting rid of the frock to make a quick buck–100% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit Oxfam, an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and injustice. In other words, you’ll be getting a show-stopping Prada dress and the satisfaction of knowing your purchase is helping to make the world a better place.
The dress went up for auction late last night and will be on the bidding block until May 19. So far there are six bids, hiking the price of the gown up to $1000–which is still, you know, not that bad for a one-of-a-kind Prada dress. And like we said: It’s for charity!
So if you’r a European size 38-40 (that’s a US 2-4), we suggest you put your bid in now. No telling, how high the stakes will get.
