Gwyneth Paltrow is giving fans the opportunity to own the Calvin Klein dress she wore to the 2000 Oscars in an effort to raise money for coronavirus relief. 

The actress revealed that she'll be auctioning off the silver dress, which she says "holds great sentimental value" to her, to benefit #AllInChallenge, which provides food to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
