CAREY Mulligan’s Met Ball 2012 dress has sold for $2,950 on eBay. The 26-year-old ‘Shame’ actress auctioned off her custom Prada dress after wearing it on the red carpet to the Costume Institute Gala held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this month.
After being listed for sale two days later, the designer frock went to the highest bidder when the auction closed on Saturday with a total of 35 bidders.
The listing described the dress - the proceeds of which will go to Oxfam America - as a “piece of fashion history”.                 –ES
