IZABELLA SCORUPCO'S GOLDENEYE BIKINI ON SALE

Izabella Scorupco's screen-used bikini (made by La Perla in Italy) from GoldenEye (1995) is being put up for sale at a charity auction in Stockholm. FSWL has got all the details and can offer this exclusive preview.

UPDATE: The bikini sold for 25,000 SEK (3,500 USD) to a Swedish collector.

For the second year in a row, Barndiabetesfonden (Child Diabetes Fund) in Sweden, together with Stockholms Auktionsverk and Lilly Diabetes organizes a charity auction at Berns Salonger in Stockholm during World Diabetes Day on November 14 to raise money for juvenile diabetes research.

Several unique items will be auctioneered on the day including the bikini Izabella Scorupco wore in the 1995 Bond film GoldenEye (white, three-piece: top, bottom, and sarong). Izabella has donated the bikini herself, it has been in her possession since the filming.

"I haven't used the bikini since the filming of the movie, it's been kept in a holy place until now," says Izabella.

She continues: "I have repeatedly been asked to donate items to benefit various charities but it never felt as good at the time. Child Diabetes has exploded around the world and it is important that we engage."

Bidding will only take place at the evening of the 14th of November, 2012. The auction can only be attended by invitation but the public can bid on telephone. Contact Stockholms Auktionsverk for more about the bidding process.

All proceeds during the evening will go to research childhood diabetes. Last year's auction brought in a total of 653 000 SEK, which hopefully is surpassed this year.

In Sweden, about 8000 children and adolescents live with diabetes, a life-long disorder that involves daily treatments and many hospital visits. Today, diabetes is an incurable, life-threatening disease, and the only thing that can change this is continuing research in this area. Sweden is the second nation in the world with the highest rate of diabetes amongst children. Children suffer almost exclusively of type-1 diabetes, which means that the cells producing insulin die. Three times more children are diagnosed with diabetes than all forms of cancer combined.

Editor's note:
Several people have tried to convince Izabella to sell her bikini from GoldenEye, but she always said no - until now.
