Few things are as unseemly as one nouveau riche celeb getting even by publicly selling off meaningful momentos of a relationship turned sour. With her multi-million dollar haul from a high-profile auction in 2006, pawning a pirate's booty of fine jewelry gifted her by ex-husband Ron Perelman, Ellen Barkin could deservedly be crowned Queen of the Truly Tacky. However, next in line to the Trailertrash Throne is Jerry Hall, who recently auctioned off over 400 items at Sotheby's...including the wedding dress she wore when she married Mick Jagger in 1990.
While the £28,000 ($55,000) raised from the sale (£2,420/$4,729 for the dress) will be donated to Emmaus to help the homeless, if the purpose is really for charity than why not be a true samaritan rather than self-aggrandizing Trump type and do something really radical: donate anonymously?
