Her choice of outfit attracted strong criticism from some quarters, particularly on social media, leading Brabin to comment that such remarks were sexist, and that people needed to listen to what was said, not worn.Following ‘Shouldergate’, the same £35 dress quickly sold out on ASOS, and Brabin put hers on eBay to raise funds for Girlguiding, to help it help more girls grow into leaders. Kicking off with a starting bid of £10, by the time bidding ended a week later on Thursday night (13 February), it had received 180 bids, reaching £20,200.last_img read more
