Phoebe’s black lace suit, which features a silk tuxedo lapel, was part of Ralph and Russo’s 2019 couture collection. She paired the outfit with classic black pumps and simple black stud earrings. During a backstage speech, the actress said, “We’ve hatched an amazing plan with Ralph and Russo – the Australian designers who created this incredible, couture suit, which is the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever worn. We’re going to auction it and the money that is raised from it will go towards relief in Australia. So I think it’s a beautiful idea from the team and I’m really excited to be part of that.”
With her upcoming donation, Phoebe has listed herself with other celebrities such as Pink, Nicole Kidman and Celeste Barber who have also pledged to help those affected by the devastating Australian wildfires.
