One of Grazia HQ’s favourite frocks was Carey Mulligan’s sultry sci-fi Prada dress so how brilliant to hear that the actress has put her Gala dress on eBay *squeals* She put her dress up for auction last night at a very reasonable starting price of $500 and it's all for a good cause too: all proceeds are going to Oxfam America. The auction closes on Saturday May 19 and will be delivered to the highest bidder by June 11. At this very moment, the dress covered in silver and gold metal pailettes was going for $1,025 so get bidding - there's just eight days left, people!

While we're on the Met Ball subject, we couldn't ignore this little gem: if you’ve ever wondered just how these lovely ladies get out of their form-fitting gowns after a night of schmoozing, Nina Dobrev of 'The Vampire Diaries' fame has the answer. She revealed on the 'The Conan O'Brien Show' that she had to be CUT OUT of her black-and-gold backless Donna Karan gown so that she could er, wee. How glam! And because Nina’s dress was made from actual vintage metal (oh yes) the starlet had to be sewn into the gown just before heading to the swanky soiree. Eek! THEN had to call a Donna Karan minion to release her out of her dress every time she needed the toilet before sewing her back in using an emergency sewing kit. Now, that's dress dedication!
