Sharon Stone auctions gowns for Middle East peace
Stone auctions her black fur-trimmed Roberto Cavalli coat that she wore in the film “Basic Instinct 2”
American actress and film producer Sharon Stone has put her favorite designer clothes up for auction on Sharity.com in aid of Yala, a Facebook-based group promoting peace in the Middle East and North Africa.
Some of her most iconic pieces of clothing are on auction, including her black fur-trimmed Roberto Cavalli coat that she wore in the film “Basic Instinct 2.”
“That thing is so gorgeous, I can’t even stand it,” Stone told E! Online. “It was already a vintage jacket when our costume designer found it. The belt is perfect.”
There is also her white satin Cavalli dress that she wore at one of his yacht parties.
“But I can say I wore it at my house a million times,” she said.
“I have two more of them. I just couldn’t let go of all of them. I love throwing one on because it’s super-glamorous but it’s like a great big bag. You can throw it on with some jewelry and run around in bare feet.”
Stone is also auctioning her unique Roberto Cavalli Atelier gown.
“I thought I needed to give this up because I needed to put a couple of things in the auction that are so couture and so amazing,” she said.
“We all know what a dress like that could cost. They are tens of thousands of dollars and they’re so rare.”
Stone has also put up her copper Fendi cocktail dress.
“It has pockets!” she said. “You don’t have to carry a purse. The pockets are in the big part of the dress so you can put your cellphone in one pocket and your lipstick in another and hit the road.”
Stone is involved in various charities worldwide, and has been the spokeswoman for the American Federation for AIDS Research for 19 years.
