Kesha Nichols, the ex-fiance of San Antonio Spurs forward Richard Jefferson, is giving away the $10,000 wedding dress she never got to wear. The couple were due to tie the knot at New York’s Plaza Hotel on July 11th, but broke up days before.
Nichols says she wants to give the dress to one lucky bride-to-be who may never have the chance to wear a one-of-a-kind couture gown.
“I would love for someone who has the kind of love that I’ve been looking for to be able to wear a gown like that,” she tells the New York Post.
The dress, which can be altered to fit up to a size 4, is by Guillermo Couture. It is made up of 80 yards of imported English netting and has ruffles that are arranged in a mushroom-pleating pattern.
To win Kesha’s wedding dress, write an essay in 150 words or less about how you’ve “danced through life” and adversity, and why you deserve to wear the gown on your wedding day. E-mail your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon Tuesday.
