YOU could own Tyra's cast-offs!

24 March 2010

Welcome to the TK Maxx/Cancer Research campaign, “Give up Clothes for Good”, starting tomorrow with a glamorous celebrity auction, hosted by eBay.

Up for grabskis will be a nifty little floral number, (by Balenciaga, no less) kindly donated by Miquita Oliver, and a v elegant printed shift that used to belong to Leighton Meester (we love her, don’t we?) Possibly our fave of all though, is this fantastic sailor style playsuit worn by Grazia’s favourite 60’s throwback pop princess, Duffy.

Duffy says - “I wore this on stage when I performed at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, August 2008.  I have really happy memories of the event because the summer heat heightened the crowd's spirit and the atmosphere was just amazing.  I'm donating it in support of the Give Up Clothes for Good campaign to raise awareness and funds for this fantastic cause.”

Meanwhile, world class super slash model-contest-dominatrix Tyra Banks has waved goodbye to her frill fronted purple dress saying "When I found out about this campaign, I immediately wanted to help - so I'm donating this purple shift dress, which I love.  It's by Catharine Malandrino and it has the cutest zip detail.  We can all get behind Give Up Clothes for Good to raise as much money as possible and help beat childhood cancers."

All you have to do to stand a chance of taking one of these (and plenty of other pieces with a famous provenance) is jump on ebay tomorrow (Thursday 25th March) and get bidding.
Good luck in the bidding y’all!
