We didn’t think it was possible for the Beckhams to be any more likable than they already were. Then they had to go and prove us wrong, those good-looking sons of guns.
According to a British Red Cross memo tweeted out by Victoria, she and her ex-soccer player husband David have donated a boatload — make that a 500-foot-yacht-load — of their worn clothing and footwear to a London charity shop to aid the typhoon relief effort in the Philippines.
“David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same,” Victoria said in a statement. “Everyone has something in their closet they were holding onto, a dress, suit, or pair of shoes they thought they might wear again, dig them out, bag them up, drop them off and give someone else the chance to buy them, raising much needed funds for the Red Cross aid effort.”
Of course, this being the Beckhams, don’t expect any old cowboy boots and lightly stained Aéropostale sweatshirts. InStyle UK reports that the couple’s donation contains hundreds of shoes from Victoria’s personal collection (including some gently worn Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks), as well as pieces by Robert Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana and a bunch of David’s beloved baseball caps.
Also in the mix? A beige dress VB donned at the Venice Film Festival in 2006 and those semi-cringeworthy white Dolce & Gabbana matching outfits the pair wore to the the MTV Movie Awards in 2003, long before she was a *serious* fashion designer. Some things just weren’t meant to be worn again, anyway.
The Beckhams’ donations will go on sale at the Kensington and Chelsea Red Cross shop in London on Friday, Nov. 22 — and sadly, the store has announced that it won’t be shipping any items. So if you aren’t located in the UK and want your shot at scoring some of Victoria’s stilettos or a strand of David’s hair (hey, you never know) and do a good deed, you may want to head to the airport like NOW.
