On the heels of last weekend’s Hope for Haiti telethon, stars continue to rally for the relief effort, this time opening up their closets for the cause. Britney Spears will be auctioning off one of the two shimmery silver Versace dresses she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008—which might even be a good luck charm, given that was the same night she made her comeback performance after her public meltdown and took home three wins in the process. Details as to the specific dress and charity have yet to be released. And she’s not the only star who’s opening her closet to benefit the earthquake-stricken country.
–Kate Bosworth is putting the diaphanous, size-2 pleated halter dress by Chloe she wore to the Food Bank of New York City’s annual Can-Do awards gala last year up for grabs, with proceeds benefitting OxFam International’s Haiti Relief Program through the Charitybuzz Heal Haiti Charity Auction (to place a bid, visit charitybuzz.com).
–Susan Sarandon is getting in on the action by donating the sultry size-6 Dolce & Gabanna LBD she wore to the 15th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on January 15 at charityfolks.com. Proceeds from the sale, organized by Modelinia.com and ping pong parlor SPiN New York (of which Sarandon is a co-owner), will benefit Friends of the Orphans in Haiti.
–Artists for Peace and Justice are helping Meryl Streep, Josh Brolin, Gerard Butler, Amy Poehler, and Olivia Wilde donate their outfits worn at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards through an eBay auction. Find out more details at artistsforpeaceandjustice.com.
–And while Lady Gaga is holding onto her outrageous costumes, the performance artist/pop singer is selling Lady Gaga Haiti Relief T-shirts on her website, ladygaga.shop.bravadousa.com. To spread the news, she Tweeted, “Buy Gaga merch today. 100% of profit goes to earthquake relief. Little Monsters save the world today!” –reporting by K.C. Baker and Ken Lee
