Girl power proponent Victoria Beckham has donated 600+ items from her personal wardrobe, including evening gowns, hats, shoes, bags, and jewelry, for a charity sale and auction at The Outnet. Pieces range from iconic (the white Dolce & Gabbana dress she wore to the 2003 MTV VMAs and the fluorescent yellow Roberto Cavalli gown from a pre-World Cup party in '06) to everyday (the Antonio Berardi and Alexander McQueen numbers one typically wears to fashion shows and theater outings). But we—and one can safely assume, the Internet—are most excited for the Spice Girls-era gems. One can never have too many leopard-print body-con dresses, after all.
Profits will go to mothers2mothers, a charity that provides education and support to pregnant and young mothers living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. The sale and auction will take place between August 20 and 25, though interested parties can register now.—Lauren Berger
