Britney Spears, BeyoncÃ© Knowles and Pink are among the celebrities whose wearable wares are up for grabs in an online clothing and memorabilia auction benefiting September 11 relief organizations.
Outfits worn by those singers – along with others worn by Sheryl Crow, Gloria Estefan, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and the Dixie Chicks – will be on the auction block for two weeks beginning Sunday (November 11) at www.gloryauction.com.
Designer Betsey Johnson donated a velvet coat with faux fur collar and cuffs that Spears wore to a Madonna concert earlier this year, while designer Badgley Mischka donated the crystal-beaded beige lace gown Spears wore to the 2000 American Music Awards.
Bidders will also have a chance at the Diane von Furstenberg dress worn by Destiny’s Child’s Knowles on a recent cover of Vanity Fair magazine.
Pink donated the orange crocheted top and pink bra she wore in the video for her new single, “Get the Party Started,” along with an outfit she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in September. Crow is offering the leather pants she wore in the video for Stevie Nicks’ “Sorcerer.”
Each outfit was donated by either the celebrity who wore it or the person who designed it, and each winning bidder will receive a photo of the celebrity wearing the outfit at an award show, premiere, video shoot or similar event.
Most of the participants in the auction, which closes at midnight on November 24, are actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Katie Holmes, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Halle Berry, Penelope Cruz and Charlize Theron. John Travolta and Adam Sandler are among the actors who donated items.
Members of the New York Yankees, Mets, Knicks and Giants, including Mike Piazza and Latrell Sprewell, offered up autographed jerseys and caps.
All of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Liberty Partnership Charity of each donor’s choice, according to organizers.
