The iconic green dress Keira Knightley wore in Atonement will be part of an online auction hosted by Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California. The auction begins today at the Foundation’s site www.clothesoffourback.org and ends Saturday, March 1st. Bidding will start at $1,000.
James Schmaus even made a statement regarding the selling of the much talked about dress:
Atonement is an epic romance that has moved filmgoers, and garnered awards and acclaim, all over the world. As with our previous auction of the two shirts worn in Brokeback Mountain , we are proud to give someone a chance to own a cherished part of a beloved film and in the process benefit the Variety charity.
