For those Met Ball-obsessives who are dying to own a piece of the action—as well as give to a good cause—here's your chance. Celebutante-turned-legit-designer, Nicole Richie will be auctioning off her custom-designed silk velvet gown worn by model Britt Maren to benefit the Richie-Madden Children's Foundation, which helps to bring more opportunities to children in the US and around the world. Bidding on eBay will start at $500, so mark your calendar (and ready your mouse) for 12pm EST Thursday. [SheFinds; All Met Ball Coverage]
