Here’s How Much Lady Gaga’s ‘Stolen’ Golden Globes Dress Is Currently Selling For
If you’ve ever dreamed of wearing one of Lady Gaga’s stunning red carpet looks, now’s your chance to do so.
The dress was put up for auction after being found in a hotel
The same exact dress Lady Gaga graciously walked across the Golden Globes red carpet in is now being auctioned off online.
According to auction website, Nate D Sanders Auctions, Sarah Corea, a Beverly Hilton Hotel employee, put the dress up for sale after she discovered it while cleaning the singer’s room.
On the website, Corea explains that says she’s been employed by The Beverly Hilton for 24 years, and always works the Golden Globes.
Since Gaga had already checked out of the hotel, Corea turned the dress into the hotel’s lost and found, but they ended up giving it back to her eight months later due to no one claiming it.
She then decided to auction the gown off online, which is currently going for pretty penny.
According to the website, Gaga’s Golden Globes dress is selling for $8,000 but will only stay at this price until October 31.
The site claims that the dress is “in near fine condition, with only light soiling to the train, just as Lady Gaga wore it that night.”
The dress comes with the lost and found receipt as well as the original garment bag.
It also comes with a note from the maid explaining just how the gown came into her possession and ended up at auction.
“After the time legally held by lost and found, they gave it to me as a gift from her,” she wrote in the letter.
The original owner has yet to claim the gown
Although the dress was found by chance, an investigation is still taking place to make sure it wasn’t stolen.
“While we are conducting an internal investigation to understand exactly what transpired, we have no reason to believe the item was stolen,” a spokesperson for the Beverly Hilton Hotel told Us Weekly. “The hotel is working closely with all parties involved to retrieve the item and have it returned to its rightful owner as soon as possible.”
Surprisingly, Gaga doesn’t own the dress — Valentino does.
The Valentino brand believes someone “outright stole” the dress and recently made an incident report with Beverly Hills Police to get the gown back in their possession.
The main reason the gown was not returned to Valentino in the first place was mainly because they never claimed it from the hotel’s lost and found.
Since eight months went by with the dress remaining in the hotel’s possession, they decided to return it to Corea in the end.
Although Valentino has followed proper procedures in obtaining the dress, a rep for the auction house recently told TMZ that the auction will continue as planned.
