The result of the much hyped auction of a week’s internship at Vogue under Anna Wintour that ended yesterday is finally out. The auction that started with a bid of $23,000 ended with a winning bid of $42,500! All the proceeds of this unique CharityBuzz auction will go towards the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. And believe it or not, Anna Wintour has already auctioned off her services again (this time for The Art of Elysium), offering a meet-and-greet along with tickets to a fashion show during New York Fashion Week, a Christian Louboutin gift certificate and status bags from Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. The Art of Elysium auction ends on 13th May, so all those interested had better hurry to cast their bids.
Meanwhile other auctions that have generated a lot of buzz include an opportunity to intern for a month at Diane von Furstenberg which was snapped up for $16,000. The winning bid for another auction to meet Oprah Winfrey at the taping of her show is also said to be expected soon.
