Going once, going twice and sold! After a week of celebrity hand-me-downs bidding, Carey Mulligan’s Met Gala dress and the Kardashians’ Closet auctions are now closed, with winning bids going into four-digit numbers.
Carey Mulligan’s Prada Met Gala dress sold for $2,950, after some 35 bids, with the proceeds going to Oxfam America (an international organization that works to combat poverty, hunger, and injustice). Considering that the Prada gold and silver pailettes halter neck dress was custom made and featured on the best-dressed lists in most magazines and blogs, we anticipated the dress to go for double the amount! Kudos to the buyer who scored the dress just in time for the wedding season.
Winning bids on the Kardashians’ Closet items, Kardashian sisters’ gently-used designer apparel and shoes posted on eBay Fashion Vault, ranged from approximately $200 to almost $8,000. As far as we can tell, the highest bid was $7,900 for Kourtney Kardashian’s Dunamis Plated Spartan Floating Diamond watch which was featured in Season 3 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kim Kardashian’s Jimmy Choo evening bag sold for $1,225 while the Christian Louboutin pumps went for $650 (see photos above).
Part of the Kardashians’ Closet proceeds will go towards Dreams Foundation (the national wish granting organization for terminally ill adults) and Life Change Community Church (Kardashians’ house of worship).
