eBay is using its online auction powers for a good cause — a fashionable one, that is! The site is teaming up with various breast cancer organizations throughout October, featuring glam auction items from Fergie and other big stars during its eighth annual “Make it Pink” fundraiser.

Hosted by eBay Giving Works, eBay’s charitable arm, the event will allow shoppers to bid on different big-ticket items each week, such as the Christian Louboutin black suede lace-up boots and Marc Jacobs navy blue satin zipper dress worn by Fergie (above).

“Pink means something to many of us. You may have been touched by breast cancer,” the singer said in a statement. “I have, since both my mother and father are cancer survivors and I lost my grandmother to cancer three years ago. As a global ambassador for the Avon Foundation for Women, I am asking you to help make a difference for women, men and their families in the fight against breast cancer.”

She may have her own vintage-inspired home line, but that doesn’t mean Rachel Bilson has stopped shopping for darling décor. At the launch of the Derek Lam for eBay collection in New York Tuesday night, Bilson told PEOPLE that she’s always on the hunt for vintage treasures — and uses the online auction site as a tool. “I am an eBay shopper,” she admitted. “But I have no patience, and if you’re waiting for a bid, it’s so nerve-racking, but I think you can find amazing things.” The actress said she’s found a lot of decorative pieces on the site, including light fixtures and a weather vane. “When I say I found it, I actually lost out on it at the last second,” she explained. “But it was one of the better finds.” Bilson, decked out in the Derek Lam for eBay “Boho” halter dress, praised the designer’s mini collection, available on eBay now for $175-$295. “I think it’s so cool that he did a collaboration [with eBay] with clothes,” she said. “It’s such a great idea.” Lam, for his part, said he was thinking of summer when he created the wares. “Women always tell me they love my dresses,” he told PEOPLE. “And I love designing dresses! Everybody needs a great dress in the summer, so that was the inspiration.” Lam, who also admitted to shopping on eBay for “the best deals,” said his greatest online get was a pair of out-of-production Nike sneakers. “Someone said to just put in the registration number and you’ll find it, and I did,” he recalled. “[It was] the last pair I was able to find anywhere in my size.” Tell us: What’s your greatest eBay find?Reporting by Asher Fogle

When it comes to fashion, designer Whitney Port is something of an expert. And yesterday, the L.A. expat brought her style savvy to downtown N.Y.C. to help launch eBay LookBook, a shopable street-style website, and of course, share some of her must-have fall items. “It’s all kind of represented here,” she said of the glimmering racks hung with dress belts, jewelry and shoes–sourced on eBay by celeb stylist Annabel Tollman–that stylish passers-by were popping in to try on and be photographed in for the online look book. “I’m a sucker for leopard,” she continued, raving about a new pair of ankle booties in the print. “And also there’s a whole glam glitz section during the day. Sequins during the day I think is a fun work look as well.” And while Whitney still loves Los Angeles, when it comes to style, New York has won her heart. “I think it’s much more fashion-forward out here. I think people take a lot more pride in how they look and how much time they get ready and everything,” she told PEOPLE. Even if you weren’t lucky enough to be in New York for the launch event, you can take full advantage of the shoppable, user-generated style gallery by uploading a photo of yourself to eBayLookBook.com or catch Whitney and the eBay fashion team in Los Angeles on Sept. 29 where they will set up another street-style shop! –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

Banana Republic may have just launched a Mad Men-inspired collection, but ’60s lovers can now get their vintage fix with actual dresses from the hit AMC show! Mad Men‘s producer, Lionsgate, has joined forces with Auction Cause to host the first official Mad Men charity auction to benefit the Lung Cancer Program at City of Hope. The 10-day eBay auction begins August 12 at 7pm PST and features vintage ’60s furniture and props from the show’s Sterling Cooper ad agency, as well as three iconic dresses worn by Mad Men‘s leading ladies—including the metallic brocade dress worn by Bobbie Barrett for a night out on the town with Don, a teal evening gown worn by Betty at the Stork Club, and a green frock worn by Joan in the famous lawn-mower episode. “This auction offers Mad Men fans an exciting new way to connect with the series while helping to support City of Hope’s important work in research and treatment of lung cancer,” said Sandra Stern, Lionsgate’s COO of TV. While we wouldn’t advise wearing these looks to work, it would definitely be fun to have an official Mad Men dress for your next costume party! –Jessie Goldberg
