Keira's Oscar dress up for grabs

Vera Wang has donated Keira's Academy Awards taffeta silk dress to Oxfam, to be auctioned to raise money for famine relief in the drought-stricken countries of East Africa. It will be sold on eBay from April 21st with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. There's more at the link below, including a button for your site/forum. Official announcement next week.

If everyone on this message board contributes 20 dollars, we could probably get the dress....
So here's the plan: everyone send me 20 bucks. I'll pool the money together, and then use it to bid on that dress. Seriously, you can trust me. I promise not to rip you all off.

Why should we trust you?

At your age you would probably spend the money
on hookers and booze

Okay...Ranman's in charge of the pot...who's bringing the hooka

I'm sure some stuffy old fogie with lots of $$$ will buy the dress and pack it away never to be seen again...well...until they croak...then all the lovely Keira-ness of it will be gone *le sigh*

My only hope is that SOMEONE bids a good amount of money on it....
Imagine if it only sells for a couple hundred dollars. What a fucking embarassment THAT would be. I hope Keira's publicity guy will be watching the auction, ready to bid ten grand if necessary.

In this business, you gotta be ready.

I see the bidding is only at 38 hundred dollars, with just 16 hours to go....
I TOLD you her publicity people aren't doing their jobs properly. They ought to be placing inflated, anonymous bids to get the price up to 5,000. You know, just so there aren't reports tomorrow that the dress failed to fetch the price they were hoping for.

Damn, I would make a clever PR agent.

It's 3800 pounds which is easily more than 5000 dollars.
And the price usually goes up quite a bit at the end of an aution like this. If you're a serious bidder with a serious amount of money, there's no point in driving the price up early. Wait until the last hour so you can catch the opposition off guard.

Well also, keep in mind Keira is a rare size. Not a lot of women could fit into it. And I'm sure men don't want to admit to buying her dress because it seems perverted.
