The designers behind the black dresses that dominated the Golden Globes red carpet are donating them… all in the name of Time’s Up.
39 designers, from Marc Jacobs to Calvin Klein, have donated the red carpet dresses, which will be up for auction on eBay from tomorrow to raise money for the Time’s Up movement.
So if you wanted to get your hands on the actual Golden Globes gowns worn by the likes of Margot Robbie and Reese Witherspoon – among others – then this is your chance.
The auction has been organised by Condé Nast, who have teamed up with both Time’s Up and eBay to make it happen.
“At Condé Nast, we’ve always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change,” said Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast.
“We’re hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year’s historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the Time’s Up initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct.”
“Through this auction powered by eBay for Charity, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we’re hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year’s historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the Time’s Up initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct.”
If your bank account is stopping you from making a sizeable bid (we predict the bids are going to be pretty huge!) then you can also enter a raffle to win another handful of hot designer pieces.
A $25 donation will guarantee entry into the raffle; winners will be chosen at random and will have a choice of one out of three gowns. With designers such as Stella McCartney and Diane von Furstenberg taking part, it would be a crime not to enter!
The auction will start on Friday January 19 at 5pm GMT.
Good luck – and remember, not only will you be getting a piece of red carpet history, but you’ll be contributing to one heck of a worthwhile cause.
