Posted on

Don’t have a dress for prom yet? No problem! Nicole Richie is auctioning off the gold velvet Winter Kate gown model Britt Maren wore to the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala last week. Starting today at 12 p.m. ET, the velvet Alexander McQueen-inspired stunner will be up for grabs, with bids starting at $500. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation. If you have your eye on Maren’s custom House of Harlow 1960 headpiece or Richie’s sparkling baubles, however, it seems you’re out of luck. Reps for House of Harlow 1960 tell us that the stars’ diamond accessories, the brand’s first foray into fine jewelry, were created specifically for the Met Gala. But if your dreams aren’t completely dashed, head on over to eBay now to stake claim on your very own piece of fashion history! —Justine Harman
