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

^ she’s trying to stay out of the media obviously.. i wish she would go to more award shows though :(

Are these dresses that they actually own or are they donating dresses that were given to them? Unless they are dresses they purchased with their own money the gesture seems almost empty. It ends up being the purchaser actually making the donation to Haiti. How about matching the bid price made for the dress?

I agree; wish we could see more of Britney too. She is very cute! So glad that she’s had a great comeback!

Seriously, has any of these “stars” that we pay a whole lot of our more hard earned cash donated cash? I have only seen used dresses etc. for the general public to fork over more money. Every last one of them are overpaid. It is insane that everyday people must struggle to support their jimmie shoooooos!
ps: let’s not forget the atheletes.. like baseball having the audacity to go on strike! UNBELIEVABLE! TELETHONS MY A**

i don’t care where the dress came from if it makes money… just a shame that we did not see this kind of outpooring for our own people( katrina and rita victims.

mel on

jesus, why donate dresses, they should just donate money, they have enough of it…

Joanna on

Does it seem right that they have to sell something valuable in order to donate money?

Gloria on

why do fancy dresses need to be donated?? dressing fancy and looking good should be the last thing on peoples minds after the Haiti tragety. I guesss celebriby people think that is what it is to help??????????
