We can’t even count the times we’ve envied the sartorial collections of our favorite celebrities and trendsetters. In a perfect world we would own Eva Chen’s trendy accessories, Zooey Deschanel’s kitschy dresses and Alexa Chung’s—well—everything. But this is the first time all of our fashion-coveting dreams might actually come true. Starting August 20, in partnership with The Outnet, Victoria Beckham will be selling over 600 pieces from her very own closet. Yes, really. Soon all those iconic, Posh Spice mini-dresses could be yours.
All proceeds will be going to the charity mothers2mothers, an organization that supports, employs and educates HIV positive mothers. “In February this year I visited South Africa for a project that I was working on with Anna Wintour. It was on that trip that I met Mitch Besser, founder of mothers2mothers, and the Mentor Mothers, who are the most remarkable women I have ever met,” Beckham told The Outnet. “I came back from South Africa and thought, ‘what can I do to help?’ I started going through my closet and found so many great pieces that I’ve worn and thought: ‘maybe I can raise money by auctioning these off.’ Working with The Outnet has been so exciting for me—I just want to do whatever I can do.”
Most of the pieces will be from Beckham’s Spice Girl days like the white Dolce & Gabbana number she wore to the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards or the yellow Roberto Cavalli gown she wore to the pre-World Cup party in 2006. While the collection will likely be filled with red-carpet pieces she couldn’t wear again anyway, there will also be everyday pieces and ready-to-wear, such as the Antonio Berardi dress she wore on her double date with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. From the 600 items she’s chosen to donate, 10 will be selected for a special auction and have been specially valued by Christie’s due to their history, rarity and personal significance.
“I laughed a lot when we were going through my wardrobe, as the pieces hold so many happy memories for me, David and the children,” Beckham told WWD. “A lot of the clothes have been specially designed for me by the most talented designers, and I’ve loved wearing them.”
