Wanna Be a Spice Girl? Now you can at least look like one.
Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice is giving you the chance to own some of her most iconic looks at a charity auction in partnership with Net-A-Porter’s sister site, The Outnet.
After visiting South Africa in February 2014, Beckham was inspired by mothers2mothers, an initiative founded to help, train and educate mothers with HIV on how to prevent transmitting the disease to their children through Mentor Mothers, mothers already living with HIV. These women work in understaffed hospitals to alleviate the stress associated with being an HIV-positive mother.
“I came back from South Africa,” Beckham said, “and thought, ‘What can I do to help?’”
She decided a wardrobe raid was the best way to go. Beckham decided to donate 600 iconic and important pieces, including those from her early Spice Girls days, to The Outnet to raise money for mothers2mothers. One of these iconic pieces includes the neon yellow, high split, Roberto Cavalli gown Bechkam wore to her family’s World Cup party in 2006. This and nine additional VIPieces will be sold in a special reverse auction in which the price of the item will decrease by a certain amount every five minutes.
Christie’s, the world’s largest art business and fine arts auction house, appraised and price each item for the charity auction.
To get the chance to Spice Up Your Life (sorry), register online at TheOutnet.com starting August 5. The online auction takes place from August 20 until August 25.
About giving back to the mothers2mothers charity, Beckham said, “I just want to do whatever I can do.”
