How much would you spend on the dress Rami Kashou made for the Project Runway Hershey's challenge? $100? $250? Try $2,975. That's what Paula Abdul shelled out for it, beating out all other bids in an online auction to benefit charity. Hershey partnered with Project Runway to auction off all the designs from the candy-store challenge, totaling by our math (which is admittedly bad) $7,583.98. That's a lot of cash for candy wrappers! Kashou, who has dressed Abdul a few times for American Idol, said her stylist called him yesterday to tell him she won the dress. Though we wouldn't put it past her, it doesn't sound like Abdul will wear the dress for Idol. She told Kashou she might wear it for Halloween next year. Kashou suggested she save it for a photo shoot or music video "should one arise." Still, a good cause is a good cause.
