-- The symbolic black dresses and suits worn by celebrities on the red carpet at this year's Golden Globe Awards will have a second chance at making a statement against sexual harassment and gender inequality.
Condé Nast announced today that, along with eBay, it will auction off some of the outfits worn by the stars in order to raise funds for the Hollywood-backed anti-harassment Time's Up initiative.
The proceeds will go to the Time's Up legal defense fund, which provides legal and public relations assistance to victims of sexual misconduct in the workplace.
"At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change," Anna Wintour, Condé Nast's artistic director and Vogue's editor-in-chief said in a press release about the auction. "Through this auction powered by eBay, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we're hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year's historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the TIME’S UP initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct."
Starting on Friday at 9 a.m. PST, or 12 p.m. EST, until the following Friday, shoppers can log on to eBay.com/timesup to bid on the red carpet looks.
Three of the dresses will be available through a special sweepstakes lottery. By making a minimum $25 donation to the fund, shoppers will have a chance at winning one of the three dresses worn by Claire Foy, Madeline Brewer and Mandy Moore and designed respectively by Stella McCartney, Diane von Furstenberg and Rosie Assoulin.
