With an announcement made via Instagram, Paltrow outlined her reasons for choosing to auction this piece of fashion history in particular. “It was a hand-beaded Calvin Klein dress,” Paltrow said in a video. “I wore it to the Bin Ich Ölig Bin Ich Fröhlich – Organic Basic Shirt besides I will buy this Oscars the year after I won [Best Actress for 1998’s Shakespeare in Love]. And it’s very end-of-the-’90s, which is very back in style now.” In addition to donating the “sentimental” gown to one lucky bidder, Paltrow is promising to deliver it “over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.” The current bid is already at $6,250 with the auction ending in 12 days. Chances are it will go for much higher.
