Do they get to keep the clothes from their photo shoots?
Well, Lady Gaga doesn’t — at least not from her Harper’s BAZAAR March cover shoot.
Harper’s BAZAAR partnered up with eBay to offer a selection of Lady Gaga’s looks and accessories from the photo shoot to benefit her charity, the youth-empowering Born This Way Foundation.
The charity’s mission statement explains what Lady Gaga is hoping to accomplish:
“Led by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, the Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. The Foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world. We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love.”
What a cool way to support the charity! So instead of just walking off set with some new designer clothes that Gaga can undoubtedly afford, some of the clothes and accessories will be auctioned off on eBay.
Starting today at 9pm EST, you can bid to win pieces of fashion history by visiting this eBay page.
Some of the pieces available will be by Atelier Versace, Carolina Herrera, Emilio Pucci, and Gareth Pugh, among others. And as the bidding wars get going, you can feel good that all that money is going to charity.
The silver jacket pictured above would look a-mazing over my pajamas during the morning school drop-off. Happy bidding!
