Mariah Carey auctioning off dress on eBay
Mariah Carey is selling one of her rare dresses on eBay.The dress is a hot pink, fishtailed asymmetric frock, and the goal of the auction is to raise money for breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The gown was created by Julian Contreras as part of a competition where the singer asked fans to design a dress inspired by her Deicious Pink fragrance, and it is one of only three in existence. Mariah was last seen wearing the dress on a dinner date with husband Nick Cannon in April.
The close-fitting dress will be listed until May 30. Mariah is not the only celebrity to be selling her property on eBay. Gwyneth Paltrow recently offered garments - including a Burberry dress and a Topshop trench coat - on the auction website, with all funds going to the Robin Hood Foundation which helps fight poverty in New York. Jessica Alba has been selling her daughter’s old clothes on eBay, as she recently placed a number of items on the bidding website in aid of charity, including some of 11-month-old Honor’s old garments, Hello Kitty rain gear and a limited-edition Maclaren Juicy Couture Ruder Stroller. All proceeds from Jessica’s sale went to the Clean Water Initiative, which aims to provide all babies with access to fresh water.
