What appears to be Lady Gaga's Personalized Valentino Golden Globe Dress of 2019 – or at least a very good replica of it – is currently an online auction hosted by L.A. Nate D Sanders Auctions. According to the seller's website, the periwinkle dress can be yours, that is, if you bid above $ 8,000 by October 31 – or unless it is closed first.

According to details provided in the auction site, a hotel worker named Sarah Corea claims to have discovered the dress at the Beverly Hilton Hotel while cleaning Lady Gaga's room after the Golden Globe. The site also states that Corea turned the dress into the lost hotel found on January 8, 2019 and said the hotel returned it on September 3, 2019.
The details on the auction site claim that a “lost and found receipt that documents the exchange also accompanies the dress as well as the original bag. The clothes are in perfect condition, with only light dirt on the train, just as Lady Gaga wore it that night.

The hotel has not yet confirmed these claims. "While we are conducting an internal investigation to understand exactly what happened, we have no reason to believe the item was stolen," a spokeswoman for the Beverly Hilton Hotel told us. "The hotel is working closely with all parties involved to retrieve the item and return it to its rightful owner as soon as possible."

Interestingly, Lady Gaga does not own her Globes dress, Valentino. The impressive number was lent by star A Star Is Born for the glamorous January 6 event. According to a report by TMZ, the dress was stolen by someone from Valentino after the brand learned of the auction. But as the dress was lost and found in the hotel for over six months, it is unclear how the problem should be resolved.
On October 17, Corea wrote a letter explaining her situation, published through a photo on the auctioneer website. “Hello, my name is Sarah. I work as a housekeeper at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. I am always present working at Golden Globe events every year in January for 24 years. "

She continued: “The artist, Lady Gaga, left me this dress she wore on the day of the awards. […] I handed over the dress […] and after the time legally detained by the lost and found, they gave me as her gift and today I want to auction off the dress ”.
We contacted Valentino and Lady Gaga for comment, but neither provided a statement from this moment on.
