Blog: Leonie BarrieCelebrity clothing auction

Leonie Barrie | 26 April 2007

If you’ve ever fancied owning Elton’s suit, Sienna’s shoes or Corinne Bailey Rae’s dress, then now’s your chance. Earlier this week Oxfam launched its biggest ever celebrity and public auction to help raise money for its GBP5m appeal for Darfur and Chad – and the stars have donated items which you can now bid for on eBay. Elton John’s Versace designed tailor-made suit specially made by Donatella Versace, which Elton wore to his White Tie and Tiara Ball currently stands at GBP264.00, while a pair of gold Roger Vivier shoes signed by actress Sienna Miller are at GBP122.00. There is still a week to go before the auctions end, so why not help the charity and boost your wardrobe at the same time?
