Gwyneth Paltrow is auctioning off one of her old Oscars dresses to help provide food aid to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic. But it’s not one of his favorites.
The auction is part of the #AllInChallenge, in which celebrities auction things like souvenirs or their time, with profits going to food organizations like No Kid Hungry and Meals on Wheels. To date, the challenge has raised more than $ 10 million.
The dress in question is what Paltrow wore at the Oscars 2000, the year after winning the Best Actress award for her work in the 1998 film “Shakespeare In Love”. The dress is a tight-fitting silver Calvin Klein number – hand-beaded, according to Paltrow.
“It was the late 90s, which is back in fashion now, so I thought it would be a good thing to donate,” said Paltrow in an Instagram video.
Paltrow said she would give the dress to the winning bidder herself, inviting the lucky winner.
The problem? It’s the same dress she previously roasted in a blog posted on her Goop website in 2013, calling it a “correct dress but not Oscar material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year. “
Responses to Paltrow’s selfless attempt were mixed on his Instagram post. Although some praised the star for her good deed, others were quick to call her.
“Very noble but give your own money, not the money from a dress auction ??? Said user bella.vw.
“Hilariously in an interview that the dress she says is one of her least favorite Oscar choices,” said user jenngorsuch.
“… In her article, she says that the dress is sentimental. I think it’s interesting to see how she wants to donate a dress that she doesn’t like .. “wrote tiffrae18.
Paltrow is not the only celebrity to donate to the cause. The challenge was launched by sports retailer Fanatics and has been met by everyone, from Leonardo DiCaprio to Ciara.
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres donated $ 1 million to the cause.
