Jerry Hall is putting the wedding dress in which she married Mick Jagger 18 years ago under the hammer today.
The model is selling 71 items from her vast wardrobe to raise money for a homeless charity and has said of the tight white lace creation: “I hope someone else has more luck than I did.”
The dress, with its scalloped sweetheart neckline, is expected to be the star lot.
But Hall, whose marriage was annulled in 1999, said yesterday that she did not find it difficult to let go of the item, designed by Antony Price.
Rolling Stone Mick’s lawyers declared that the Bali wedding was not legally binding.
Hall said: “Yeah that did make it easier (to get rid of the dress). It being annulled made it a lot easier.
“I’m hoping someone else will have more luck than I did. It feels great.
“My kids were not really keen on keeping the wedding dress. They will get their own. But there was a lot of discussion about the other clothes and some arguments.”
She added: “Georgia (16) wants me to buy back some of my clothes at the auction for her. But I’m not going to buy back my old clothes, I’m not doing that.”
The wedding dress, which is expected to fetch between £300 (€378) and £500 (€630), comes with a photograph of the model and actress wearing the garment and standing next to Mick at the ceremony.
Hall is also auctioning a Japanese silk wedding kimono given to her by Mick as a wedding present.
She said she had not spoken to her ex in advance about her decision to sell his gifts, adding: “It was really good getting all the clothes out and making room for things that actually fit. I was so thin then. All the clothes bring back so many memories.”
Other items in the sale include a Dolce and Gabbana jewelled bra, a black corset, a Vivienne Westwood bubble dress, a scarlet evening gown, a faux leopard skin dress Hall wore in a Bovril ad and a brown mink and fox fur full length cape.
Anyone wanting to buy the items for themselves would need a 26in waist, long legs and a 34in bust to fit into them.
Former hostage Terry Waite, who is president of the Emmaus charity for which the items are being sold, said: “It just shows you that there are a lot of people in this world who really do care about social conditions and who are very generous.
“Many of these dresses have a sentimental attachment and many people would say that although they won’t wear it again they would not be able to let it go. It’s very generous of her.”
The sale is expected to raise more than £25,000 (€31,515) for the charity which provides communities for the homeless.
The auction is held today at Sotheby’s Olympia in London.
