Let’s be honest, each of us has stared longingly at Hollywood’s most glamorous A-listers posing in luxurious designer dresses and thought I wish that were me. Who hasn’t wanted to wear red carpet looks worn by Jennifer Lopez, Cate Blanchett, Cardi B, Julia Roberts, and Beyonce herself? Well, now is your chance to look like a star! Chic Relief is an online auction organized by Elizabeth Stewart, stylist to Hollywood’s stars, a former New York Times fashion editor, and eBay. The auction begins on May 17th at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET and goes on for 10 days. Dresses by Christian Siriano, DSquared2, Youssef Aljami, and George Chakra Couture are among the donated items up for auction.

Many of us would like to help someway during this difficult time and what better way to do it than shopping for charity? 100% of the proceeds of Chic Relief will benefit Direct Relief, the organization which partners with public health officials and non-profits to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers on the frontlines. Additionally, eBay will match each dollar given, so your new outfit will have double the impact. “Giving back is so important in times like these,” Elizabeth Stewart said, “And I’m fortunate to be able to come together with my friends in the fashion community to create fundraisers like Chic Relief.”
