The stunning backless dress donned by Keira Knightley in the Oscar-nominated film Atonement, is being auctioned online for charity.
The auction opened on 1st of February and is due to close on 1st of March, with a minimum bid of £500, so ladies you have less than a month to raise the funds and slim down to a size 0. You can place a bid on http://clothesoffourback.org . The proceeds will go to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California which is a non-profit organisation that assists addicted, abused, neglected and physically-challenged children.
