We’re not ashamed to admit we’re slightly envious of celebrities. They get to don pretty dresses, get their make-up done and turn up to glamorous parties. However, it seems that they too can have one dress too many and what’s the best way to clear them out? Donate them to charity of course. This is something Brit actress and ShinyStyle favourite Carey Mulligan has decided to do.
The starlet is joining the likes of Elle Macpherson and Alexa Chung and donating the Vionnet frock that she wore this year to accept her Best Actress award, to Oxfam, to raise money for the charity’s women’s projects.
The dress will have a starting bid of £50 and will be auctioned alongside other items from 10am onwards on Thursday 13 May.
Funds raised from the sale of the dress will go to Oxfam’s women’s projects across the world to support vulnerable women.
