Gigi Hadid, Christy Turlington and More Celebs Are Auctioning Off Their Designer Clothes for Charity

Turlington snapped her photo from Long Island, modeling a printed, billowy dress she wore to the 2018 H&M Conscious Exclusive campaign.

"I love that it’s made from repurposed materials, and because Earth Day was approaching when I took this selfie," she explained. It seemed like the perfect piece to pass along."

Editor in chief Edward Enninful announced the timely project in an Instagram post on Friday, saying he has been “so touched to see how my own industry has been rallying during the pandemic.”

“Some of fashion’s leading models are taking part in a special British Vogue project to raise money for NHS Charities Together and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, by each selecting a look from their own wardrobe to auction off,” he wrote. “I am delighted to reveal a galaxy of catwalk stars who have self-documented – in spectacular style – and written about treasured pieces in the July issue of the magazine.”

Enninful continued, “Their at-home photographs are so joyful, and their choices so personal, I hope you will all be encouraged to bid and raise funds for these worthy causes.”

British Vogue's The Way We Wore auction, in partnership with HEWI, launches at 2PM BST on Tuesday 9th June at and will be live for 72 hours 

And "The Way We Wore" isn't the only event auctioning off designer styles for charity.

Last month, celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart partnered with eBay for a virtual event called "Chic Relief," where bidders won red carpet gowns worn by Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Cardi B and more.

"Chic Relief" raised $83,545.76 (the auction itself raised $41,772.88, and was matched by eBay). 100% of proceeds were donated to Direct Relief, a nonprofit organization that is providing protective gear and other support to front line medical workers worldwide amid the pandemic.
