Halsey and Ariana Grande are set to go head-to-head for the May Queen dress Florence Pugh wore in cult 2019 horror movie Midsommar.
The extravagant floral item, which was worn by the British actress in the final scene of the movie, is up for grabs in the A24 Films charity auction to benefit The FDNY Foundation – and both of the stars want it.
“Me, to myself,” Halsey tweeted. “Don’t bid for the Midsommar May Queen outfit don’t bid for the Midsommar May Queen outfit don’t bid for the Midsommar May Queen outfit don’t bid for the Midsommar May Queen outfit…”
Grande responded: “DO IT! Halloween will never be the same… Also, I’m bidding as soon as possible.”
The 7 Rings hitmaker previously shared a screenshot on her Instagram Stories to confess she already had her eye on replicating the dress after her friends had been forwarding her the news of the auction.
“I was already planning to have it made anyway bye,” she wrote.
Pugh starred in the movie as a young woman who travels to a commune in Sweden with her boyfriend, played by Jack Reynor, for a midsummer festival that descends into terrifying violence at the hands of a pagan cult.
The studio will host a series of auctions, each with different lots. The first sale was held on 22 April and featured original items from the hit HBO show Euphoria and horror movie Hereditary, with proceeds donated to NYC Health + Hospitals.
The next auction, to take place on 27 April, will include 10 items from Midsommar, including the May Queen outfit and a bear mask.
Another sale will be held on 4 May, and will feature lots from Uncut Gems, with the iconic jewelled Furby chain and Idina Menzel’s bat mitzvah dress up for grabs, with proceeds going to the Queens Community House.
And on 11 May, the final auction will be held, featuring items from The Lighthouse, including a mermaid statue.
