Do you carry your lunch around in an old plastic bag? Do you ever wonder if, somewhere, somehow, a better option is available? Dream no more, friend. Now you can own a one-of-a-kind designer lunchbox created by a genuine celebrity, thanks to the Lunchbox Auction. Presented by Gourmet Magazine, the event features some nifty looking lunch caddies by Mario Batali, Beastie Boys, Gwyneth Paltrow, David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Salman Rushdie, Cameron Diaz, the cast of “Gossip Girl,” Rachael Ray, Eva Mendes, Mike Myers, Ellen Page, Michael Stipe, Liv Tyler, and Diane Von Furstenberg, among others . I'm fond of the one designed by New York Giants' Offensive Line:
Intimidating, yet refreshingly amateurish. Best of all, proceeds from the auction go to the NYC Food Bank.
So, if you're tired of plain ol' brown bags and tupperware, and have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket, go make a bid. It's probably the cheapest Von Furstenberg original you'll find anywhere.
