On this day in fashion history

2006, Keira Knightley put her Oscars gown on eBay. The actress had initially put her Vera Wang-designed dress in the window of Oxfam, Notting Hill, but later decided to auction it. Thought to be worth up to £25,000, the sale of the claret silk, one-shouldered dress contributed to a £20 million Oxfam aid appeal for drought-ravaged East Africa. The dress raised £4,301.
