Celebrities Donate Fashions To Tsunami Aid.
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Actress Teri Hatcher took off her clothes -- but not on the set of ABC's "Desperate Housewives."An auction? What the hell?
Hatcher, who won a Golden Globe for her role on the nighttime soap opera, shed the silver Donna Karan dress she wore to Sunday's awards ceremony and handed it over to a fund-raising auction for victims of the December 26 tsunami.
Actor Liam Neeson, a Golden Globe nominee for his portrayal of pioneering sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, donated his Armani tuxedo to the online event, scheduled to end January 30.
What, do these celebrities think that some orphaned Indonesian child prostitute wouldn't appreciate the silky smooth feel of Vera Wang against their skin? How ethnocentric.
I can think of no better clothing for Sri Lanka's Tamil rebels than the stylish duds of an Armani tux. Killers in killer clothing-- HOT!
But no, Hollywood's royalty will deny the poor and impoverished of Asia the luxury of a slinky Versace, or a form-fitting Chanel gown. And why? So they can sell the clothing to other rich people, and buy Nike t-shirts with the pocket change remaining after the auction house takes its juice.
