Lea Michele is a long-time buddy of PETA. She’s leading their campaign to ban horse-drawn carriages including writing a letter to Mayor Bloomberg and appearing in a PETA video in support of a ban. Now, she’s supporting PETA in a whole new (and stylish) way.
Michele’s Escada dress that she wore to the 2011 Met Ball, is now up for auction on charitybuzz, with proceeds going to PETA. The auction is through the Variety Foundation’s Power of Women which “honors women in entertainment whose passion and commitment have contributed to the progress and success of their chosen causes.” The Glee star was honored at this year’s Power of Women event for her work with the animal rights organization.
The dress was custom-made for the actress and is described on the auction site as a “red faille gown” that “features a siren fit with inset godet to enhance the dramatic silhouette,” and “detailed with rough finished seams and intricate top stitching.” So, if you happen to be looking for a size 2 dress that will raise some money for animals, this is the auction for you! The current bid is at $550.00.
