You can get Charlize Theron’s dress for just over a $1,000!!

Ackkk I was just watching the rerun of Oprah cause I missed it earlier today. It was a show about giving and charity (something I think I (we) should all do more often). Charlize Theron was on to talk about a outreach program in her home country of South Africa that she is funding. To help support it she is auctioning off the 1st dress she ever wore to the Cannes Film Festival on eBay. Thinking that this show was recorded at least 12 hrs ago I figured the price of the dress would be in the thousands but much to my SURPRISE the dress was at $1,075 with more that 2 days to go!! WTH is that about. Come on all you fashionista’s bid on the dress! You’ll get to own a beautiful made dress as well as get a fashion statement (the designer made Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s wedding dress) and help some kids out. Here are the details:

Want to make a difference in a child’s life? To help raise funds for the children of Africa, Charlize is auctioning of one of her gowns on eBay. Proceeds will go to the Entertainment Industry Foundation benefiting the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.

The one-of-a-kind, ivory couture dress was designed by Narciso Rodriguez exclusively for Charlize. “This is a very special dress,” she says. “This is the first time I ever went to the Cannes Film Festival.”

If you would like to bid on Charlize’s gown, go to eBay.com.

Come on I know your tax return is coming 😉

UPDATE – March 12, 2008 1pm EST

The price of the dress is at $1,675 now with almost a day to go but I still don’t think that this is high enough for this dress!! What do you guys think?

FINAL UPDATE – March 13, 2008 10am EST

The final price of the dress was $1,825! While I realize that that is alot of money I thought a dress like this one and a cause so worthy would have fetched a higher price :(. Well I’m sure the money will be well used and it is going to a good cause no matter what.

Purple Satin all over the place….Oh My!

In reading blogs this week I noticed a trend towards purple, satin and lady like dresses. Look at Scarlett Johansson at the 58th Berlinale Film Festival:

Stunning I thought.

Then I came upon this in In Style’s The Look section:



Talk about Hollywood royalty! Regal purple satin is the latest fabric to adorn red-carpet princesses. “I love feeling womanly,” Anne Hathaway told In Style. In her formfitting Dolce & Gabbana bustier dress (also donned by Fergie), Hathaway lived up to her promise. Those who want to follow her lead must think fit—a too-small satin dress will accentuate every lump and bump. “[Hathaway] still likes being Cinderella for the night,” stylist Rachel Zoe has said. Well, if the glass slipper fits….

Then I realized why I loved these dresses all along. I had bought a similar dress and have it on sale in my eBay store. It isn’t my size otherwise I would be wearing it and none of you would have a chance to own it…..But alas I’ve gained more than my fair share of winter padding ;). So it is available for any of you would like to get on the Purple Lady-like bandwagon. Here is the dress:
