A maid from The Beverly Hilton hotel is auctioning off the dress Lady Gaga wore to the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.
The Bad Romance singer made a splash when she stepped out in the custom-made periwinkle Valentino gown at the ceremony in January, where she scooped the Best Original Song – Motion Picture prize for Shallow – her duet with Bradley Cooper from the hit movie A Star Is Born.
However, an employee from The Beverly Hilton named Sara Corea has now claimed that she found the dress on 8 January and handed it into the lost and found department at the luxury venue, and as no one collected the couture piece, she was given the garment to keep in September.
She has now put the dress up for auction via Nate D. Sanders Auctions, with the bidding opening at $8,000 (£6,230). The auction is currently scheduled to take place on 31 October, with the dress presented with a letter from Corea explaining how the item came into her possession.
“I turned in the dress to the lost and found on the 8th of January 2019,” she wrote in the note. “After the time legally held by lost and found, they gave it to me as a gift from her and today I want to auction the dress.”
Yet, according to TMZ.com, there’s a chance the auction may not go ahead as the gown didn’t actually belong to Gaga, 33, but was loaned to her by Valentino for the event.
A source has told reporters at the website that executives at the Italian label have alleged the dress was stolen and are planning to report the theft.
On the evening of the Golden Globes, Gaga teamed her one-of-a-kind dress with $5 million (£3.9 million) worth of Tiffany & Co. diamonds and complemented the look by dyeing her platinum blonde hair a matching shade of blue.
