On Instagram, the actress said she is joining the #AllInChallenge in an effort to focus on organizations providing food assistance. She captions the post by saying, “I am donating a dress I wore to the Oscars (and that holds great sentimental value!) which I will personally hand to you over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.”

In the video, the Paltrow says, “It was a hand-beaded Calvin Klein dress, I wore it to the Oscars a year after I won, and it’s very end of the 90’s which is back in style now, so I thought it would be a good one to donate.”
