Ever Wanted to Wear Your Fav Celeb's Dress?
HAVE you ever wished you could borrow a dress from Kate Moss' wardrobe, or that Scarlett Johansson lived round the corner and let you plunder her red carpet wares? Well, Topshop might be about to make your Christmas wishes come true.
The brand's new initiative, Dress Me Up, will allow shoppers to hire dresses owned by stars including Kate Moss, Freida Pinto, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Palermo, Jourdan Dunn, Erin O'Connor, Naomi Campbell, Sophie Dahl, Nicola Roberts and Dita Von Teese - as well as designers including Richard Nicoll, D&G, Burberry, Zandra Rhodes, Meadham Kirchoff, Clements Ribeiro, Marios Schwab, Danielle Scutt, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and Emma Cook - for one day only.
The dresses will then be auctioned, giving you the chance to own your favourite dress forever with all proceeds from hire fee and the auction going to Topshop's chosen charities Age Concern and Help the Aged. And the best news is, the hire fee is just £40.
"Having worked with Topshop for so long, we didn't think twice about donating our dress. It's such a great cause, especially at this time of year," Emma Cook explained. "The combination of being able to help support Age Concern and Help The Aged and the chance for someone to wear our dress that wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford to, is such a fantastic concept."
Here are some of the dresses...
