EXCLUSIVE: Taylor Swift Donates Her Prom Dress to Charity

04/08/2009 at 04:59 PM ET


Country superstar Taylor Swift has had the opportunity to wear beautiful dresses to events like the Grammy Awards and ACM Awards. But there is one gown that isn’t just sitting in the back of her closet: her prom dress! Swift has given her long cream and gold Jessica McClintock gown to Hearst Magazines’ DonateMyDress.org, the first national network to bring together local dress drive organizations across the U.S., to help girls give and find the dress of their dreams. Taylor was more than happy to part with her dress, which she posed in with her best friend Abigail Anderson, saying, “I chose to give away this prom dress because I wore it once and loved it! To keep it around, hanging there all by itself and lonely in my closet, never to be worn again seemed a little pointless. I want another girl somewhere to feel good in it and have a great prom night because of this dress.” Taylor’s dress sold for a whopping $1,200 in DonateMyDress.org‘s first celebrity dress charity auction. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Nikki Blonsky, Eva Amurri, Ashley Greene and other stars all donated their dresses to the auction run by CharityFolks.com. Visit DonateMyDress.org to find a local collection spot near you.
