Trijntje‘s controversial “slutty widow” dress caused quite a stir when she wore it to rehearsals in Vienna. But she’s now putting the dress up for auction to support the LINDA Foundation charity.
Trijntje might have only worn the dress to her first rehearsal, but it made a huge impact. With a plunging neckline, ample sideboob and a strategically placed rip on the bum, Trijntje’s dress was the talk of Vienna and became a sensational frontpage news story back home in the Netherlands.
The dress made another appearance when Trijntje’s sister-in-law Edsilia Rombley cheekily wore the frock while delivering the Dutch points at the grand final.
But now Trijntje has put the dress up for auction, in support of the LINDA Foundation, which helps children living in poverty.

Secrets of the dress
Dutch audiences were given a closer look at the dress on talk show RTL Late Night.
It was revealed that the dramatic slits at the front of the dress are actually lined with Swarovski crystals, as is the rip on the bum. There’s also something going on under the dress which involves even more crystals. You can never have too many crystals.
