The stunning green silk evening gown will be offered in an online auction to raise money for Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California. The organization aims to assist addicted, abused, neglected and physically-challenged children. Starting bid is $1,000 — but expect this one to get out of financial sight pretty quickly.

The musician planned on staying for a week, but ended up living for four months on a remote farm. Said Kravitz, “There was no stress, less time spent on decisions.
