Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Skrillex + More Donate Clothes for Sandy Relief
Are you interested in expanding your wardrobe while helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy? Good news! A bevy of stars have donated a closet’s worth of one-of-a-kind items to be sold off in fashion auctions for charity.
Billboard reports that the initiative, dubbed Re/Create, has rounded up an eclectic list of celebrities — including Kanye West, Skrillex, former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, Kelly Osbourne, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga stylist Nicola Formichetti, who’s tossing in a custom signed bag.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind specially created for this charity,” Formichetti explained. “NY is the place I choose to live and the place where I get the most inspired. I create and recreate here. It is my new home.”
Win enough items, and you could put together a brand new outfit for yourself: As Billboard notes, the list of goods includes a Sue Wong evening gown (courtesy of Osbourne) and a bottle of Selena Gomez perfume (courtesy of…well, we bet you can guess that on your own).
“Like many New Yorkers, we were saddened by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and motivated to help,” explained Re/Create in a statement on its site. “To assist the ongoing relief and rebuilding efforts we are proud to present this auction of personal, one of a kind items donated by prominent members of our creative community.”
