Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Golden Globes outfit sold for £21k

OHMYGOSSIP — Phoebe Waller-Bridge has sold her Golden Globes outfit for £21,200.
The 34-year-old actress auctioned off her Ralph & Russo designer tuxedo she wore to the awards ceremony earlier this month to help raise money for the victims of the Australian bushfires.
After the ceremony, she signed the custom-made two-piece – which featured geometric black and gold ribbon applique, Chantilly lace and a silk lapel – and listed it on eBay.
In a statement announcing she was auctioning the item, Phoebe said: “I’m very excited that this stunning, one of a kind, couture tuxedo created by Australian geniuses Ralph & Russo will continue its journey by contributing to this urgent cause.
“If money raised by its auction can help raise funds to fight the disaster in Australia, the future impact of this suit will be far greater than the luck it brought me and the ‘Fleabag’ team at the Golden Globes.”
On Sunday (19.01.20), the auction closed with just one bid of £21,200.
The ‘Fleabag’ creator decided to split the proceeds between three charities: the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery Fund, which will help Red Cross emergency teams, WIRES Wildlife Rescue Emergency Fund and Wildlife Victoria, which are both on the ground assisting in the rehabilitation and recovery of thousands of Australian wildlife.
Meanwhile, the suit’s designers Ralph and Russo said they were “delighted” by the star’s decision to sell the outfit.
They said: “Being both from Australia originally and with much of our family still residents across the region, it is with a heavy heart that we watch and hear the news of the terrible fires currently engulfing such large areas of our homeland.
“With Australia remaining so close to our hearts, we are delighted to stand next to Phoebe to support relief efforts with this special auction.”
