Okay, we’ll admit it, watching the Bachelorette has always been one of our guilty pleasures. We made a point of staying home Monday night to see who Ashley Hebert would ultimately choose. So, yes, you could call us fans of the show…but we’re not as fanatical as some. How do we know this? Perhaps it’s that we’re slightly confused to hear news of the Bachelor/Bachelorette Charity Auction.
Now before you immediately whip out your chequebook we think you should know that it’s not the actual stars you’ll be bidding on…it’s their outfits! Starting tomorrow you can go to shopedropoff.com and bid on looks the contestants wore on their respective seasons of the show. The auction runs from August 5th to 12th with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Red Cross.
The concept is the brainchild of former bachelorette Trista Sutter, who told InStyle she came up with the idea after a deadly tornado struck her home state of Missouri. To support Trista’s cause more than 30 former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants have offered up outfits they wore on TV.
Let’s face it, the Bachelorette bunch aren’t the most style-savvy ladies on television (see above) but InStyle has compiled a collection of some of the key items that uber-fans might flock to.
