For the second year running, Oxfam has launched a pop-up shop featuring items worn by celebrities.

Called “The Curiosity Shop“, the temporary store raises money for the charity’s women’s projects around the world. Personal wardrobes from the likes of Jude Law, Scarlett Johansson, Colin Firth, Florence Welch, and many more are offered up for sale. This includes several of the outfits that Livia Firth wore during this year’s Green Carpet Challenge.

“The Oxfam Curiosity Shop is a fantastic idea,” says Scarlett Johansson. “What a great way to give old clothes a new lease on life. As a global ambassador for Oxfam, I have seen how the charity’s work can change people’s lives. In India and Sri Lanka I’ve visited projects that are helping poor people find their own solutions to poverty. So, I’m delighted to be able to donate this beautiful Dolce & Gabbana dress that I wore to last year’s Drama Desk Awards in New York. This dress holds treasured memories for me because that was such a special evening. I hope somebody else enjoys wearing it as much as I did.”

At an auction on April 1st, the fair trade, fair mined jewelry that Livia Firth wore to the 83rd Annual Academy Awards was sold for more than $40K. It’s estimated that by the time the shop closes on April 10th, more than $400,000 will have been raised for Oxfam.
