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.

I think that’s something most celebs should do, because if you think about it ‘a lot of the things they obtain they mostly use it once or twice and throw it to the back of thier closets anyways. So why hold on to when you’re not gonna be wearing it again-pass it on!! So good looking out Taylor Swift. Keep the blessings up!!

That was a great thought but while she’s at it she should donate her other dresses from big events too – she’d never wear the same dress on the red carpet twice so why not?! That’s really great of her though – her heart is in the right place!

I think that’s really great!! She did such a good thing with that! I think sh eshould consider donating her other fancy dresses too though! I mean she would never wear the same dress twice on the red carpet so why not?! Eiher way her heart is in the right place and that’s great to see!
