In an adorable celebrity move, Carey Mulligan has listed her Met Gala dress on eBay in the name of charity. The custom Prada dress she wore on Monday night is available for purchase via the online marketplace with a very democratic opening bid of $500, with all proceeds going to Oxfam America. There's still over a week left in the auction, which will close on Saturday, May 19. So of course it won't be that cheap for long—but it's nice to think that for the moment, it's within reach for us regular people out here.
