The stars have dug deep in their closets to find items they can sell in a new charity auction to benefit gay and lesbian groups in America.

Among the celebrities who have donated clothes to the eBAY/Absolut Internet auction are Andie MacDowell, who has offered up an old leather jacket; Anna Nicole Smith, a blue nightie; Milla Jovovich, a PRADA dress; and socialite Paris Hilton, a signed T-shirt.

Other stars have headed for the studio - Tony Bennett and Ozzy Osbourne have both signed microphones, and the Rolling Stones currently have the top bid for a signed guitar ($3,650/GBP2,281). Bidding continues.
