If you have ever wanted to have a look inside the wardrobe of Kate Moss or Scarlett Johansson, and wished their dresses were yours, then here is your chance! From today, visitors to Topshop’s Oxford Circus store in London will be able to try on some very fancy dresses from top notch celebs. You can then hire them for just £40 for Christmas parties!
Some of the dresses on offer are the following; Kate Moss’ beaded Lanvin party dress, Scarlett Johannson animal print dress by Nanette Lepore and Freida Pinto has donated a pale yellow Burberry Prorsum dress (pictured). The other dresses that are available are a full floral length gown by Dolce & Gabbana as owned by Peaches Geldof, a midnight blue evening dress by Jayson Brunsdon from Dita Von Teese and Nicola from Girls Aloud has handed over a bespoke stage costume from the band’s recent tour.
Other stars such as Naomi Campbell, Little Boots, Alison Goldfrapp, Olivia Palermo and Jourdan Dunn have all donated dresses too, as well as designers Christopher Kane, Emma Cook, Richard Nicoll and Jonathan Saunders, who have handed over pieces from their labels.
It all sounds so exciting! Shoppers can browse the rails of garments and try on pieces from today until 6th December, while the period of dress hire starts on the 7th til the 23rd December. You can hire a piece for two nights for £40 with the opportunity to enter a silent auction bid and have the dress forever when they go up for sale.
The best thing about all of this is that it’s being done for charity. All proceeds are going to both Age Concern and Help The Aged. What great causes, and what a fantastic idea!
See you later, I’m off to Topshop…
