Golden Globes dresses going up for auction in support of "Time's Up" initiative
Jan 18, 2018
resses worn by some of the most famous actresses in Hollywood at the 75th Golden Globes are going under the hammer in support of the "Time's Up Legal Defense Fund."
A-listers caused a sensation at the famous awards ceremony earlier this month when they turned up on the red carpet wearing all-black, in support of the "Time's Up" initiative against sexual harassment, assault and discrimination. And now, media giant Condé Nast has teamed up with eBay to put some of the gowns up for auction.
A total of 34 dresses will be listed on the online auction site on January 19, including Gucci gowns worn by Dakota Johnson and Margot Robbie, Louis Vuitton pieces sported by Alicia Vikander, Michelle Williams and Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep's Vera Wang number. Nicole Kidman's Givenchy gown and Gal Gadot's Tom Ford piece will also feature in the sale, alongside creations donated by Prada, Dior, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel Haute Couture, and many others.
"At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change," said Anna Wintour, Artistic Director of Condé Nast and Editor-In-Chief of Vogue. "Through this auction powered by eBay, 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."
Funds raised from this auction will be directed to the "Time's Up Legal Defense Fund," which was pioneered by some of the most influential women in Hollywood, and which helps victims of workplace sexual harassment to find legal representation and public relations assistance.
The auction will run from January 19 through January 26 at 9 AM PST/12 PM EST on ebay.com/timesup.
