Fleabag star auctions off Golden Globes outfit to raise money for Australian bushfire relief

Actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge will auction off her outfit worn at the Golden Globes to raise money for Australian bushfire relief. 

The creator of the award-winning British television series Fleabag is selling her couture tuxedo by Australian designers Ralph and Russo.

"We've hatched an amazing plan with Ralph and Russo who are Australian designers who created this amazing, incredible couture suit which is the most extraordinary thing I've ever worn, and we are going to auction it and the money that is raised from it will go towards relief in Australia. 

"So, I think it is a beautiful idea from the team so I am really excited to be part of that."

The bidding for the outfit starts at NZ$80,000.

It's described as "black chantilly lace tailleur, silk duchess tuxedo lapel, geometric black and gold ribbon appliqué, signed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge". 

The auction will continue until January 20.

Quirky British comedy Fleabag and its star Waller-Bridge were big winners for Amazon Studios at this year's Golden Globe awards.

Fleabag took home two Golden Globes, including best television series, musical or comedy and best performance by an actress in a television series, musical or comedy for Waller-Bridge.
