Fans looking to own gowns worn by the likes of Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett and Cardi B now have the chance. Celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who dresses Roberts and Blanchett, among other Hollywood leading ladies, has launched a charitable auction featuring designs by Louis Vuitton, Ralph & Russo, Georges Hobeika, Azzi & Osta and Christian Siriano, to name a few.
Chic Relief, as Stewart calls it, is a partnership with eBay to help Direct Relief, a global humanitarian organization, and its efforts during the coronavirus pandemic. The digital auction, located at eBay.com/chicrelief, will kick off on May 17 at 7 p.m. ET and end on May 27.
“I really wanted to do something to help front-line workers get the basic protection needed to combat this virus,” said Stewart, who’s quarantined at home in Santa Monica, Calif., with her husband and two college-aged kids. “Through this special eBay fashion event, 100 percent of proceeds will directly benefit Direct Relief, which is incredible. They are doing really important work right now coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide [personal protective equipment] and essential medical items to health workers on the front lines
