Balmain's 2018 Met Gala Dresses Up For Auction

Olivier Rousteing of Balmain announced in their YouTube account that he will auction all of his designs worn by celebrities at the 2018 Met Gala in partnership with (RED) to fight against AIDS. Celebrities who will participate in the charity event are Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Trevor Noah, Juliette Binoche, Natalia Vodianova, Natasha Poly and Julia Stegner. The bidding price starts at $5K online and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Global Fund, which aims to prevent the transmission of HIV during birth.

This year's Met Gala theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination inspired Olivier Rousteing to this charity auction. " I'm inspired by religion. More than that, I'm inspired by love... I told my team, I know that these [looks] won't be ours at the end. But they're going to auction for (RED). I wanted to make the most memorable clothes not just by their craftsmanship, embroidery, or cut, but because all of that would go toward helping kids survive. That was the point: to make the most spectacular creations to get the most money to save the most lives," Olivier told Refinery29. We couldn't agree more.
