Shoe-valanche! Victoria Beckham Donates 100 Pairs Of Shoes To Red Cross Charity Shop
We imagine the Beckham's walk in is like Disneyland for grown ups, making Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe look, well, lame. Get your elbows ready, as Victoria and David Beckham have cleared out 20 boxes of designer clobber from their wardrobe to the British Red Cross Shop Drop to raise money for the Philippines. Can you say MAJ-OR?!
So what can you get your paws on? The couple have selected 100 pairs of Victoria's heels, David's baseball caps and a selection of Dolce & Gabbana suits. We don't know the specifics yet (no word on the leather suits), but we do know that the beige parachute dress VB wore to the Venice Film Festival is in one of the boxes.
Just in case you're reading this Vic, we'd like some Manolo monks, your tangerine VB dress and one of your many black floor-sweepers. We imagine they had a LOL looking through the Beckham archives, but Vic told Grazia she doesn't wince at old pictures. ‘People always say, “Do you cringe?” And I say, “Not at all.” Everybody changes. I love fashion, and I love changing my style, my hair, my make-up, and everything I’ve done in the past has made me what I am now. Not everyone is going to like what I do, but I look back at everything, and it makes me smile.’
British Red Cross Director of Fundraising, Mark Astarita, said: 'We are delighted to have Victoria and David’s support for the British Red Cross ‘Shop Drop for Philippines.' Their generous donation will enable us to raise significant funds towards the enormous humanitarian operation currently underway: providing survivors of Typhoon Haiyan with urgent shelter, medical equipment, food and clean water.' He added: 'We know people desperately want to help, but many just don’t have the money to give. ‘Shop Drop for the Philippines’ offers everyone an opportunity to make a difference, either by donating items or by shopping in one of our 330 shops across the UK.'
The Beckham pieces will go on sale at the Kensington & Chelsea Red Cross shop TOMORROW, with extended opening hours from 11am to 8pm. We expect that 69 Old Church St with turn into fashion chaos - anyone else tempted to pitch a tent?!
