Another charity auction but this time the contributor is not any ancient artwork instead sparkling corsets carried by renowned Hollywood celebrities. The list of 40 celebrities all set to promote and contribute to the children’s charity include Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Beyoncé Knowles, Eva Longoria and Jessica Simpson. Around 19 corsets are being sold at Frederick’s of Hollywood’s flagship store in Los Angeles and the remaining can be handpicked online on 5 November from the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, NGO founded by celebrities concerned towards gravely ill and autistic kids.
The total sales generated so far have touched $120,000 with Dita Von Teese’s piece garnering the peak offer. The burlesque star’s peculiar bodice, coated with multihued Swarovski crystals and pursued by a fuchsia plumed tail fetched $20,000. Following this is Johansson’s corset, a champagne satin piece adorned with platinum beaker globules that reaped $11,000while Debra Messing used intense, mottled shades. Andy Garcia’s Cuban flag-inspired corset is still available. Here is an invitation for all filthy-rich folks, if you still have enough money to burn then invest it to the noble cause.
