Albeit one that wasn't "Oscars material.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is stepping up to do her part amid the coronavirus pandemic, by auctioning off a vintage Oscars dress from her closet.

Over the weekend, the actress announced on Instagram that she's joining the #AllinChallenge by donating a dress she once wore to the 2000 Oscars up for auction. Paltrow added that she said she will also personally hand over to the lucky winner, "over a cup of tea or a glass of wine."

Proceeds from the auction will go to Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

According to the All-In Challenge's website, the winner will also get a roundtrip flight and a one-night hotel stay in Los Angeles, presumably where Paltrow will personally hand over the dress.

Though she added in her caption that the dress "holds great sentimental value," she previously called it one of her worst-dressed moments, writing in a 2013 goop blog that the Calvin Klein number was "It's an okay dress but not Oscars material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year."

Perhaps hindsight has made her cast the dress in a much kinder light? Either way, I personally would love to own a dress that would help me disappear.
