‘Downton Abbey’ Star Puts Emmy Gown on Auction

“Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery is selling the eye-catching gown she wore to last year’s Emmy Awards to help victims of the Syria civil war.

Christie’s auction house says the Prada dress, featuring a red halter-style top and burgundy skirt, will go under the hammer in London on June 20. Proceeds will go to humanitarian organization Oxfam.

The gown is expected to fetch between 3,000 pounds and 5,000 pounds ($5,000 and $8,400).

The actress, who plays Lady Mary in the costume drama, visited a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan last year. She said she hoped the buyer “will get as much pleasure from it as I did when I wore it to the Emmy awards and that we can raise as much money as possible to support the Syrian people.”
