Naomi Campbell once let the SULTAN OF BRUNEI get a close-up look at her naval ring in return for a $14,000 (GBP7,700) donation to Aids benefit AMFAR.

Sharon Stone persuaded the British supermodel to let the Middle Eastern royal ogle her at the first CANNES FILM FESTIVAL AMFAR auction nine years ago (95).

The subsequent annual auctions have raised a staggering $15.4 million (GBP8.5 million) for Aids research.

This year's (04) AMFAR auction included a Versace designer dress and performances by Liza Minnelli and Sheryl Crow.
