Got about a gazillion dollars and a big heart? Then you might want to get in on Charity Buzz's latest auction to benefit The Rose Foundation and The White Ribbon Alliance. Red carpet favorite Marchesa has put together a package for the site's annual Valentine's Day auction. Not only will the winner receive a collection dress--which she'll get to choose herself at the design duo's Manhattan studio--she'll also get two VIP passes to the label's February 17 presentation at Chelsea Art Gallery. The current bid is just $1,850, but the auction closes at 12:56 pm on February 10, which means it's bound to creep up to its estimated value of $15,000 by then. For the lucky ones we say: Happy shopping! For the rest of us, we say: Happy dreaming!
Check Out Nicole Richie's Marchesa Wedding Dress
The other two gowns have yet to surface, but I'll admit that I'm digging Nicole Richie's froufrou Marchesa ball gown. First off, the top is lace with long sleeves--my dress is, too!--and although I typically vomit at the site of tulle, I think its light and fluffy and gorgeous. Sure, it's not what I'd pick, but it's unique. And that's what's missing in the bridal market these days. Kudos to Nicole for choosing such a lovely look, and congrats to the happy couple!
