Red Carpet Dress on Ebay
[Update] The coveted dress that Carey Mulligan wore to the Met gala sold for a very modest price of $2,950.00! That means whoever won the dress saved a bundle but also has a piece of fashion history and celebrity iconography. Congrats to the 35th bidder!
Met Gala star Carey Mulligan is selling her “best dressed voted” dress on Ebay and all the proceeds will go directly to Oxfam America. Her dress is a custom Prada that walked down the red carpet, was featured in every fashion paper in the US, and was the actual dress worn by Mulligan that night. The novelty alone should kick the price up to a good charitable number.
It is made of silver and gold paillettes and fits a 2-4 or (38-40). The starting bid was $500.00 but the retail on a dress like that would be well over $5000.00. The auction closes May 19th and will be delivered to the winners home by June 11th. Wearing this dress is the equivalent of wearing Chloe Sevigny’s Miu Miu dress from the event… only nicer.
Best of luck if you are bidding or planning on buying this for someone you know. Check back around the 19th otherwise to find out how much the metallic piece went for.
