A leather jacket donated by Sarah Jessica Parker, a TwentyTwelve playsuit from Sienna Miller’s closet, and a pink polka-dot bikini designed and modeled by Elizabeth Hurley are just three of the covetable lots in Celebrity Boutique, a new online charity auction that opens today. All proceeds from the ten-day sale will go toward funding research and treatment at London’s Royal Marsden hospital, an institution that, as well as being the world’s first dedicated cancer facility, has some serious fashion credentials: British Vogue editor in chief Alexandra Shulman is among its trustees. A word of advice: If you’re eyeing the black PVC pants Elle Macpherson donned for the season premiere of Britain’s Next Top Model in June, be ready for a little tailoring. Hospital insiders have been snapping pics of themselves in the donated clothes to post on the charity’s Twitter feed, and one not-particularly-short staffer confided glumly: “Elle’s trousers literally came up to my nose.”
