Fashion enthusiasts, brace for some exciting news as celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, known for styling A-listers Beyoncé, Julia Roberts, and Cate Blanchett, among many others, has launched a charitable auction on eBay called ‘Chic Relief.’
The auction will showcase Arab couturiers like Yousef Al-Jasmi, Georges Hobeika, Georges Chakra, and Azzi & Osta among many international designers — all up for grabs if you are in the mood for a quarantine splurge. The outfits at the auction were previously worn by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and Cardi B at award shows, music videos, and other red carpet events. Among the many pieces on sale is Beyoncé’s custom black gown from Lebanese duo Azzi & Osta, which she wore to the Pre-Grammy Gala in 2018 and an embellished catsuit from Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al-Jasmi worn by rapper Cardi B.
Stewart has joined forces with eBay for this auction, in order to raise funds for global humanitarian organization Direct Relief’s efforts to battle the Covid-19 pandemic. “I really wanted to do something to help front-line workers get the basic protection needed to combat this virus,” said Stewart, who is quarantined at home in California. “Through this special eBay fashion event, 100 percent of proceeds will directly benefit Direct Relief, which is incredible. They are doing really important work right now coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses in the US and globally to provide [personal protective equipment] and essential medical items to health workers on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Other designers featured in the charitable auction include Ralph & Russo, Louis Vuitton, Christian Siriano, Mary Katrantzou, and Bottega Veneta.
The digital auction can be accessed via eBay.com/chicrelief from May 17 at 7 pm ET through May 27.
