Lena Dunham is supporting the Planned Parenthood Federation of America by selling 169 clothing pieces from her closet. The women’s rights activist and feminist posted her clothes on the RealReal. 70 percent of the proceeds earned from sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood, in a time where the organization is struggling in terms of funding.
“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally. I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it,” said Lena to The New York Times
Clothes purchased from her closet will come with a personal letter as proof of authenticity. The size of the pieces range from 4 to 12, “I like being a woman who’s not a typical Hollywood size putting beautiful designer things out into the world,” Lena said. If you’re in the market for a red carpet look, Lena’s Elizabeth Kennedy gown worn at the 2017 Met Gala is on sale for $4,000.
Whether you purchase the clothes out of hate for the actress or because you want to support the cause, Lena had this to say, “Probably some people will buy the clothes because they hate me and burn them. And I bless them, too. The money’s still going to Planned Parenthood.”
