Lena Dunham has sold off a large bulk of her wardrobe–including the dress she cried in election night–so that she can donate the proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
Dunham put up over 100 pieces of her closet for sale on the site The RealReal, promising buyers a handwritten note about the history of the clothing item.
Of the “Kenzo Ruffled Print Dress” that Dunham wore on election night, she writes, “I’ll be honest and say it was selected with a different outcome than me sobbing with my head in Lady Gaga’s lap.”
“But we continue to fight, we always fight for progress and the future, for our planet, and our children,” she continued, “and this dress to me represents so much the spirit of hope that I know will get us through.”
The dress sold for $125.
Other pieces that were for sale included a $4000 Met Gala gown and a $75 pink “I’m With Her” t-shirt.
Im cleaning out my closet by partnering with @therealreal to sell items directly from my closet to benefit Planned Parenthood. I’ve been lucky enough to own some truly special (often custom) pieces from innovative designers and selling items that have been worn down Brooklyn streets, on the set of GIRLS and at awards shows and book signings. Each purchase will come with a note from me that documents my experience wearing the piece. I hope you enjoy the pieces and the stories behind them. Link in bio to shop. #realrealedit #IStandWithPP
