A custom made Valentino gown worn by Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes is going up for auction!
Looks like Lady Gaga had no desire to keep her 2019 Golden Globe Awards dress as it’s going up for auction!
Gaga who wore a custom off-the-shoulder Valentino Haute Couture gown reportedly left the piece in her Beverly Hilton Hotel room. It was later discovered by 24-year-old employee Sara Corea who passed it along to Nate D. Sanders auction house.
In the letter to the auction house, Corea says that when she found the dress, she initially turned it into the lost and found. However, after nearly nine months passed, the hotel gave it back to her prompting her to want to put it up for auction!
In Corea’s Letter of Authenticity, she claims “the dress was left in the room.”
The dress began with an $8,000 bid but since its release on the website, 2 people have bid on the dress taking the current price up to $9,680.
When it comes to major events like awards shows, designers rent or lend the dresses to the celebs. However, there has been no word on if the dress was gifted to Gaga or if she was supposed to return it to Valentino.
As of now, People reports that they did reach out to the hotel who released a statement saying;
“At this time, the hotel is working closely with all parties involved to retrieve the item and have it returned to its rightful owner.”
The auction house also released a statement saying;
“We have been made aware of a question concerning the provenance of the Lady Gaga dress being auctioned on October 31. Our research confirms the dress was given to the Beverly Hilton lost and found department, where it stayed for almost nine months. The hotel, in accordance with its longstanding policy, released the dress when no one claimed the item. The consignor has a receipt from the Hilton Beverly Hills Lost and Found Department and documentation, which accompanies the dress for auction.”
