  • Gwyneth Paltrow auctions her outdated Oscar robe for coronavirus reduction funds

"I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year", the actress wrote in her post.

Gwyneth's social media followers were quick to point out her previously disclosed disdain for the gown (a true fan never forgets a Goop post), connecting the dots between her lack of love for the CK dress and her choice of donated clothing.

The auction is part of the #AllInChallenge, in which celebrities auction off things like memorabilia or their time, with proceeds going to food organizations like No Kid Hungry and Meals on Wheels.

In addition to the dress, the auction victor will also get to have a "cup of tea or glass of wine" with Paltrow, as well as a round-trip economy flight, a one-night hotel stay in Los Angeles and ground transportation to and from the destination airport.

The problem? It's the same dress she previously roasted in a 2013 blog posting on her Goop website, calling it an "okay dress but not Oscars material". The comments didn't stop there, either, and another user added that she should have made a donation, rather than giving away a dress that she can no longer wear.

Gwyneth then challenged Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lake Bell to take part in the cause.

Thus, what was an assumed aim for charity work earned some mixed reactions.

Plus, as Marisa Meltzer learned in writing about Paltrow, what other people think of the actress and entrepreneur has never been her main concern-as controversies over everything from a goat's milk cleanse to hiring a book curator to vaginal jade eggs (to name just a few) can attest. I cannot applaud you my uncle has started a covid challenge to GIVE to people in need.

"With all that money. you will offer a dress to the highest bidder _‍ shame on you! Says a lot about who you are", said by user nancyh1938.

According to Vogue, the last recent bid on Paltrow's dress is at $6,250.

Now the bid is $ 6250, while 12 days left until the end of the auction.
