Christina Aguilera and Cindy Crawford are among the stars being blinded and gagged for a provocative new AIDS education campaign.

The stars were joined by Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd and Josh Lucas among others for a photo shoot in New York to promote new AIDS Empowerment Tags, which are being sold to raise cash for charities.

In the hard-hitting PETER LINDBERGH photos, the stars agreed to have their eyes, ears or mouth covered to mimic the three wise monkeys, who fought to "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil," from the famous Three Truths proverb.

Aguilera had duct tape stuck across her mouth, while Crawford had the tape covering her eyes.

The three different dog-tags feature the words 'See,' 'Hear' and 'Speak' embossed on them and are available online via for $5 (GBP2.80) each. All proceeds will go to AIDS charities.
