But will you pick Emma Watson or Olivia Palermo?
Have you ever wanted to peruse in your favourite celebrity’s wardrobe, and maybe pick a few items out for yourself? Well, now you can – because Vestiaire Collective has launched the Wardrobes for Women celebrity charity sale, drawing together globally inspiring female celebrities to sell items from their cupboards.
From the 3rd December, for twelve days, you’ll have the chance to snap up dresses, bags, coats, shoes and more from the likes of Keira Knightley, Lena Dunham, Diane Kruger, Chloe Sevigny, Dree Hemmingway, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Watson, Olivia Palermo, Caroline Issa and Charlotte Dellal. Phew.
All the proceeds will go towards raising money for Women for Women International, a charity helping women in war-torn countries rebuild their lives. The charity, which has been running for over 20 years, has helped over 420,000 women survivors of war in some of the world’s most dangerous places in everything from earning a stable income to learning about their health and rights.
And not only have the celebrities given their clothes to the cause, but they’ve also lent some inspiring words about why they did so, below – pictured in some of the outfits they’re selling…
Charlotte Olympia Dellal: ‘I am proud to be part of the Wardrobes For Women campaign with the wonderful Women for Women International and Vestiaire Collective. I hope my involvement and donation will go towards raising funds and awareness for this inspiring charity that I am honoured to be an ambassador for.’
Olivia Palermo: ‘I am honoured to be a part of this initiative that supports women. As women we all have a responsibility to support one another and I am glad Women for Women International gives us all the opportunity to contribute.’
Diane Kruger – ‘I’m excited to share some of my favorite clothing pieces with you and help raise money for such a great cause. Supporting one another as women is very important to me!’
Lena Dunham: ‘I’ve always dreamed that someone might want to shop from my closet! And for a good cause no less! These are some pieces I have loved and adored, that have made me feel chic and happy, designed by friends and loved ones. Please enjoy for women everywhere :)’
Emma Watson: ‘It is with absolute pleasure that I am donating some of my personal clothing to such a worthy cause, Women for Women International. Let’s help raise these funds together to support women around the world who need our help.’
Keira Knightley: ‘It’s a pity when beloved clothes sit dormant
in my closet, so I am thrilled to be a part of Wardrobes for Women to
give these clothes a new life. These beautifully designed garments and
accessories will not just give elegance to the wearer but also support
women survivors of war who are working to rebuild their lives.’

Lupita Nyong’o: ‘If my access to beautiful goods can directly improve lives and support women in war torn countries, I’m in. Wardrobes for Women is an initiative helping to draw women of very different backgrounds and circumstances closer together, and in this connection lies the power for change.’
Charlotte Gainsbourg: ‘Women for Women International” is a beautiful charity. Already the title is evocative! I hope these clothes will find happy new owners!’
Chloe Sevigny: ‘I believe that it’s so important that as women we unite and do everything we can to support other less-fortunate women around the world. I am delighted to donate some of my favourite pieces in order to raise money for such a great cause.’
Chiara Ferragni: ‘Being involved in this project is really important to me. I believe all women are unique and the way that we are able to see the world could really help to make a difference. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the support of other women, and every woman should have this opportunity to find her own strength and to be the best she can.’
Issa: ‘We have been longtime supporters of Women for Women
International at Tank Magazine. Creating a special Art Issue to raise
money for the organisation was one of the best professional experiences
of my career, so I was happy to donate some of my favourite pieces to
raise money for a wonderful cause.’
Dree Hemingway: ‘All the
clothes I’ve donated to Wardrobes For Women have real meaning to me. It
makes me happy to give something I love to make somebody else happy, and
it makes me happier still that the proceeds go towards such an
important charity as Women for Women International.’
The Wardrobes for Women charity sale will be available on vestiairecollective.com from 3rd to 14th December 2015.
