Gwyneth Paltrow is auctioning off her old clothes for a poverty charity.
The Oscar winner is donating a selection of “vintage” clothes to one of her favorite charities.
“I thought maybe I would eBay some of my favorite and most treasured things to raise some money for the Robin Hood Foundation, who do a lot of amazing work in New York City," she wrote on her blog. “So check it out if you are interested.”
The auction includes bracelets, necklaces, bags, sunglasses, a bikini and much more – mostly from designer Stella McCartney.
“Gwyneth is a neighbor of ours and is obviously familiar with what we do,” said Boss of Flogit4u, Phillip Davies, who is overseeing the sale on auction. “She had a big clear-out of her wardrobe and wants to raise money for one of the charities she’s involved in. There are some amazing pieces from Jimmy Choo to Lanvin to Balenciaga.”
The Robin Hood Foundation targets poverty in New York City by finding and funding the most effective programs and partnering with them to maximize results.
