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.

Has Priscilla been getting appearance advice from her Ex-Son-In-Law Jacko?

I hate to be mean…OK ok not really 😉 but when I saw Pricilla Presley on Oprah the other day I was shocked :o…..I guess everyone in the world (at least the blogging world cause I found many blog posts referring to it) knows about her plastic surgery but I was surprised. I always thought she was an attractive woman. Now she looks horrible. I think she has been getting appearance advice form her ex-son-in-law Jacko!!! It is scary. Here are some recent pics of her so you can judge for yourself: Then Popsugar posted an article about Patrick Dempsey being the face of Versace. He is pictured with Donatella Versace at her latest show for Milan’s Fashion Week. And OMG did she look like a man. I know mean but really. She looks like a drag queen….A bad one cause I love drag queens. They always look prettier than me. Donatella looks like a bad drag queen with a cute dress on. Her lips look like Glodie Hawn’s after she got too much collagen in the movie “The First Wives Club“. Her lips look like they belong to a guppy. See if you agree with me, here is a pic of the two of them:Look aging worries me. It is happening to me everyday just like everyone else but I’m trying to age gracefully (with treatments, creams and maybe botox in the future). I use whatever I can get my hands on that helps me maintain a youthful look while still allowing me to move my forehead and retain a smile that doesn’t resemble the Joker’s. I get that to be in the limelight one needs a little help but when the stars go over board on plastic surgery you gotta call them out on it and say PLEASE step away from the scalpel for a little bit. A wrinkle in time is not such a bad thing…..Actually it is a great book…..LOLLet me know what you guys think?
