Score Meryl Streep's gown or Seth Meyers' tux for a good cause.

Conde Nast has partnered with eBay to auction 39 of the all-black ensembles worn by celebrities at the 2018 Golden Globes with proceeds going to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund. Dresses and tuxedos worn by Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Tracee Ellis Ross and host Seth Meyers are among the looks that will be sold to benefit the organization, which provides legal support for women across industries battling sexual harassment in the workplace.

The auction will run Jan. 19-26 (9 a.m. PT) at ebay.com/timesup, and three of the ensembles will be available through a raffle with ticket prices at $25. (Which is quite a deal, considering the historic relevance of these political protest pieces.)

The ensembles were donated by the fashion designers who created them, including Giorgio Armani, Prabal Gurung and Brandon Maxwell, many of whom had to remake dresses and tuxedos to accommodate the last-minute all-black dress code devised as a means of showing solidarity and support.

In addition to outfitting various presenters, nominees and attendees, luxury brands including Calvin Klein and Tiffany & Co. also made donations to the Time's Up organization around the Golden Globes to honor the movement. 

"At Conde Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change,” said Conde Nast artistic director and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. “Through this auction powered by eBay, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we're hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year's historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the Time's Up initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct."

Vogue has partnered with eBay before on fashion auctions to benefit charities, including Met Ball gowns sold to benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
