Photographer Mark Seliger is giving the public access to some of his most well-known celebrity portraits to aid coronavirus relief efforts.
The photographer has teamed with Christie’s and Red Carpet Advocacy to host an auction of his archival celebrity photos seen on the covers of Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair with proceeds benefiting several global charities.
The auction includes 25 of Seliger’s most well-known portraits of celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Billie Eilish, Jennifer Lopez, Tom Hanks, Lenny Kravitz, former President Obama, Snoop Dogg and Oprah Winfrey, among others.
“My career has been built on connecting with and understanding people and their stories with the desire to represent them in a way that is authentic and, in some cases, a bit fantastic,” Seliger said in a statement. “My team and I have curated a special group of prints for this auction that illustrate some of my favorite subjects and moments from the last 30 years.”
All proceeds from the auction will benefit America’s Food Fund, American Red Cross, Direct Relief, Get Us PPE, Meals on Wheels and World Central Kitchen among other global charities providing COVID-19 relief.

Sotheby’s has set a new sneaker auction record with the Nike Air Jordan 1 sneakers sold off earlier this month.
The sneakers Jordan played in in 1985 sold for $ 560,000 in the online auction, exceeding the previous record held by the Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoe” from 1972 by more than $ 100,000.
The auction house teamed with collector and consignor Jordan Geller, who founded sneaker museum Shoezeum, on the online auction. Geller reached out to Sotheby’s to auction the shoes after the popularity of the ESPN and Netflix documentary “The Last Dance.” The sale coincided with the last episode of the documentary that airs on May 17.
The Peter Moore-designed mid-length sneakers were produced and worn during 1985 and signed by Jordan in permanent marker. Bidders ranged in age from 19 to over 50 from four continents, and 70 percent of the bidders were new to Sotheby’s. The value reached $ 300,000 within the final 20 minutes of the start of the sale and eventually sold at more than 3.5 times its $ 150,000 estimate.
“We are extremely excited about today’s record-breaking result,” said Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s director of e-commerce development. “Building off the momentum from our debut sneaker sale last year, which previously set
Fans looking to own gowns worn by the likes of Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett and Cardi B now have the chance. Celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who dresses Roberts and Blanchett, among other Hollywood leading ladies, has launched a charitable auction featuring designs by Louis Vuitton, Ralph & Russo, Georges Hobeika, Azzi & Osta and Christian Siriano, to name a few.
Chic Relief, as Stewart calls it, is a partnership with eBay to help Direct Relief, a global humanitarian organization, and its efforts during the coronavirus pandemic. The digital auction, located at eBay.com/chicrelief, will kick off on May 17 at 7 p.m. ET and end on May 27.
“I really wanted to do something to help front-line workers get the basic protection needed to combat this virus,” said Stewart, who’s quarantined at home in Santa Monica, Calif., with her husband and two college-aged kids. “Through this special eBay fashion event, 100 percent of proceeds will directly benefit Direct Relief, which is incredible. They are doing really important work right now coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide [personal protective equipment] and essential medical items to health workers on the front lines
Badgley Mischka is spotlighting the artistic talent and creativity of its founders and head designers, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, to send messages of love, support and solidarity through art during the pandemic.
The pair has created 35 one-of-a kind sketches, conceived of and created while he and Mischka are isolating at their home in Palm Beach, Fla. Each sketch represents an emotion, mood, thought or feeling brought on by the worldwide health crisis. The designers have partnered with Feeding America, which provides support to their network of food banks across the country and food assistance to those facing hunger.
All 35 sketches will be available on badgleymischka.com as part of an online auction through eBay for Charity. Bidding opens today and runs through May 17. One-hundred percent of the purchase price of each sketch will go directly to Feeding America. Bidding for each sketch opens at $ 100.

“James and I have been working remotely like most of the world and we just started doodling,” said Badgley. “One goes through such a range of emotions through all these crazy times. I just think
Sotheby’s logged one of its most successful jewelry auctions ever this week amid global coronavirus lockdowns.
The auction house marked its best sell-through for an online jewelry sale, selling 97 percent of lots from its Jewels Online auction that wrapped on Wednesday. The sale realized $ 739,375, far surpassing its highest total estimate of $ 671,600.
Sotheby’s says that half of the auction’s lots exceeded their highest estimate and that it received bidders from 32 countries with an average six bidders per lot. Approximately 22 percent of the auction’s buyers are new customers for Sotheby’s and half of all bids were placed through mobile devices.
The biggest sale was a pair of ruby earrings by Michele Della Valle that realized $ 25,000 — far more than the lot’s high estimate of $ 7,000. Sotheby’s says that the sale’s lots by David Webb, Tiffany & Co. and Verdura all saw 100 percent sell-through rates.
A Paloma Picasso chunky green peridot necklace designed for Tiffany’s realized $ 12,500 — approximately six times its highest estimate of $ 2,000. A pair of Verdura Byzantine ear clips originally thought to take between $ 5,000 and $ 7,000 sold for $ 13,750.
Sotheby’s global head of online jewels said of the sale in a statement: “In this unprecedented moment,

LEE’S MOMENTS IN TIME: Thursday’s “Collection of Lee Bouvier Radziwill” sale brought in $ 1.26 million and capped off Christie’s Collector week.
Photos, art, furniture, tableware and other personal items from Radziwill’s estate went under the gavel at the Rockefeller Center auction house. Radziwill, who died in February at the age of 85, was perennially linked to her sister, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. But her own striking style and eye for decor was showcased amid the 168 lots that were up for grabs at Christie’s. In the end, 158 lots were sold including such leading ones as Peter Beard’s “Running Giraffe” that sold for $ 60,000 — double the starting estimate. Another piece of art Circle of Jacques-Laurent Agasse (Geneva 1767-1849 London), Tigers in a Landscape went for $ 57,500 and a scrapbook of Kennedy’s and Radziwill’s 1962 visit to India was auctioned for $ 50,000. The grand total for Christie’s fall sales of decorative arts was $ 6.57 million.
Other standout items were four Spanish colonial polychrome painted metal retablos supplied by Radziwill’s preferred interior designer, Renzo Mongiardino, that topped off at $ 40,000 and a set of 15 Indian reverse-painted glass pictures in Mongiardino-designed frames for $ 40,000 — more than triple the high end of
There’s a watch to suit every style and budget, but if you really want to put something memorable on your wrist, mark your calendar: On December 10, Phillips, in association with Bacs & Russo, will auction off a Rolex GMT-Master owned by actor Marlon Brando, Forbes reports. Not only that, it’s the same watch he wore on set during the filming of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 classic Apocalypse Now. How’s that for a piece of history?
The watch is the same one worn by Brando’s character, Colonel Walter E. Kurtz, in the film. Brando even engraved the watch himself, inscribing “M. Brando” on the caseback. According to a press release, the watch was long considered lost, but it has actually remained in the actor’s family for decades. Brando gave the watch to his daughter as a graduation gift in 1995, and then she gifted it to her husband on their wedding night in 2003.
“This Rolex GMT-Master is the holy grail of watches owned by Marlon Brando,” said Paul Boutros, Phillips’ Head of Watches, Americas, “and one of the greatest ‘long lost’ watches to finally surface after years of speculation.”
Although it’s famous for appearing in Apocalypse Now, the watch almost didn’t make it into the film. Brando was initially told to remove the watch before filming began, but he protested.
“If they’re looking at my watch,” he said, “then I’m not doing my job as an actor.”
He wore the watch, but removed the bezel—resulting in the unique look seen in the film.
The watch is one of several timepieces up for action by Phillips at the event, titled Game Changers, in December. According to Phillips, all of the watches were owned by “extraordinary people who are considered ‘game changers’ in their fields.”
Brando’s watch is in exceptional condition. The hour markers and hands have aged into a “a gorgeous shade of beige,” the press release states. It’s otherwise undamaged, and comes with a rubber strap—and without the bezel, just how Brando wore it. In a note to his daughter, he wrote about how the timepiece had served him well.
“This watch is like a tank. You can do anything you want to it and it will keep on going.”

MILLION-DOLLAR WARDROBE: The sale of Catherine Deneuve’s Yves Saint Laurent outfits raised $ 1 million during an auction at Christie’s Paris on Thursday, with every single lot snapped up.
Interest in the sale was so strong that 90 percent of the 129 lots sold for multiple times above their pre-sale estimate, while the pre-sale exhibition held during Paris Couture Week drew 4,500 visitors, the auction house said. Online bidding for a further 140 lots remains open until Jan. 30 at midnight.
“This week, with highlights including the view and the auction itself, has been a new experience for me and has exceeded my expectations in many ways,” Deneuve said in a statement.
“I would like to thank Christie’s for the beautiful catalogue and the fact they paid tribute to YSL’s talent by presenting his creations in such an exquisite way at the preview, attended by thousands of people. I sincerely hope that the new owners will enjoy these pieces of couture as much as I did,” she added.
The top lot was a haute couture evening ensemble consisting of a chiffon blouse, scarf and taffeta skirt from the Russian collection that Saint Laurent designed for fall 1977. It sold for $ 59,745, 10 times the top
THE DEVIL IN PARIS: Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is holding an auction on Dec. 19 of 100 drawings by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The pictures, drawn by Saint Laurent between 1961 and 1962, were destined to illustrate a children’s book commissioned by Parisian publisher Jacques Damase, but the project never came through. This is the first time the drawings are being unveiled to the public.
Named “Le Diable à Paris” (“The Devil in Paris”), the book, written by Damase, features a dapper-looking devil, drawn by Saint Laurent, wearing a red suit and little black horns on the cover illustration.
Other drawings see the devil dress up to visit a duchess, sport a leopard-printed suit and even a bull’s head in an illustration titled “Le Diable Espagnol” (“The Spanish Devil”), where he is pictured alongside a flamenco dancer.
Drawn in ink, pastel or graphite in mostly red and black hues, the title character is faced with an array of magical creatures, such as a giraffe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower or a human body with a dragon’s head.
A statement from the auction house explained Damase met Saint Laurent through accessories designer Roger Vivier. At the time of the project, the

Take note, if you die young and a superstar, all your business will eventually get out there. Case in point, a couple of love letters a teenaged Tupac Shakur wrote a high school crush are going up for sale.
The folks over at Moments in Time are selling 2 handwritten letters for a cool $ 15k. They’re from the rapper to a teen crush when he was a 14-year-old freshman in 1985 at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore. They’re addressed to Averel, who at the time was the same age.
The first letter reveals a shy Tupac introducing himself to Averel. Tupac surfaces in the second one as emboldened … professing his wants and needs, if ya catch our drift. We’re told Averel, who sold the letters to Moments in Time, was not impressed by Tupac’s game.
Worth noting, one letter is signed “Passionately, Tupac (New York) Shakur.” Yes, he dotted the “i” with a heart.”

BERGE’S BOOKENDS: If reading is the key to enlightenment, Pierre Bergé sure had a lot of books to spark his intelligence.
Sotheby’s Paris will hold the fourth auction for a selection of books from Bergé’s personal collection on Dec. 14. Several choice lots are on view at Sotheby’s New York office through Saturday, and they illustrated the myriad interests of the late French business titan: botany, gardens, philosophy, activism and more. The upcoming auction is expected to drum up between 5 million euros and 6 million euros, according to a Sotheby’s spokeswoman.
Literature, the 19th century and music were among the areas of interest covered in prior sales, with the first auction having been held nearly three years ago.
The December sale includes such highlights as Bartholomeus Anglicus’ “Le Propriétaire des choses,” circa 1486. This complete copy of a major medieval encyclopedia is illustrated with 19 large woodcuts, all hand-colored at that time. Bidders will also find Gustave Flaubert’s “Salammbô” from 1863, a first edition that was inscribed by Flaubert to the composer Hector Berlioz.
Another reading relic is Leonhart Fuchs’ “De historia stirpium commentarii insignes” from 1542 that is considered to be the founding treatise of modern botany. The auction house will also

To celebrate the occasion, RCA presented him with a white gold Omega watch fitted with a diamond bezel, the kind of gift normally reserved for a 75th wedding anniversary. And this spring, that watch will go on sale as one of the marquee lots in Phillipsâ annual watch auction in Geneva.

Vivien Leigh’s beloved belongings are to be put up for auction.
Jewelry, dresses and accessories once belonging to film queen, best known for her starring role as Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With the Wind,” are to be sold by Sotheby’s on Sept. 26 in London.
Each of the 250-plus lots are estimated to sell for between 100 pounds to 100,000 pounds.
Included in the survey are a gold ring from Leigh’s second husband Laurence Olivier, a diamond bow pendant, her wig worn for the film “A Streetcar Named Desire,” a sterling silver cigarette box and a “Gone With the Wind” script.
Harry Dalmeny, Sotheby’s U.K. chairman, commented on the sale: “This is our chance to discover the real, and unexpected, Vivien Leigh.
“We’re all guilty of confusing our favorite actresses with the heroines they portray, of blurring Vivien’s identity with that of Scarlett O’Hara or Blanche DuBois. But behind the guise of the most glamorous and talked-about woman of her age, we find a fine art collector, patron, even a bookworm, who was the intellectual equal of the literati, artists and aesthetes she counted among her coterie.
“Her private collection does not disappoint. Vivien approached the decoration of her homes as if she were designing a
How much is a sweater worn by Kurt Cobain worth? According to an auction site, the olive cardigan Cobain sported during Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged performance merits anywhere from $ 40,000 to $ 60,000. Outrageous? Maybe at first glance, but when compared with the estimates for clothing and accessories from the wardrobes of other musical icons also up for sale, Cobain’s moth-eaten knit seems almost competitively priced. Jimi Hendrix’s favorite bracelet, for example, picked out at the Portobello Road Market and partially made of plastic, is predicted to fetch between $ 25,000 and $ 35,000. Several of Michael Jackson’s jackets are also available, as are items from Elvis Presley, Madonna, Freddie Mercury, and John Lennon. For those who can’t decide what to pick up from the sale, we’ve highlighted our five favorite picks above—but hurry, you have only until 10:00 a.m. PST to place your bid.

If you’ve got a quarter-million dollars lying around and a hankering to feel like a Gilded Age baron, have we got the gemstone for you.
The Hope Spinel, a 50.13-carat spinel gem once belonging to banker Henry Philip Hope, is up for auction later this month. Hope’s vast collection contained some 700 gems before his death in 1939, including the famous Hope Diamond, now at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
The spinel hasn’t been available for 98 years, and will be sold during the Bonhams London Fine Jewellery sale later this month for an estimated $ 240,000 to $ 310,000.
“You just don’t see pieces of this quality and provenance on the open market very often. It’s very exciting,” Emily Barber, a representative for Bonhams, said in a statement.
Spinels have similar refractive qualities to diamonds and garnets, according to the Gemological Institute of America, and they’re a fairly common occurrence in nature. Forbes noted that they’re often mistaken for rubies.
Barber said the Hope Spinel’s “exceptional transparency, flawless cut, beautiful color and large size” classify the stone as an “exceptional treasure of nature.”

ON THE BLOCK: One of the world’s rarest pearl necklaces will return to the auction circuit this October. Sotheby’s will auction “The Cowdray Pearls” at its Oct. 7 Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels sale, and estimates that the Cartier-signed piece could fetch between $ 4.5 and $ 7 million.
The necklace itself is composed of 42 extremely rare gray saltwater pearls, and the auction firm says it is a near-impossible occurrence to find that many grey pearls that create a proper match. The necklace is accompanied by a pair of matching earrings, with mounts also by Cartier.
Chin Yeow Quek, deputy chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and chairman of international jewelry, Asia, said of the lot: “Natural saltwater gray pearls are rarely seen at auction and the present necklace, strung with 42 superb gray pearls and of aristocratic provenance, is arguably the greatest of its kind in existence. This is an extraordinary collecting opportunity for pearl and jewellery connoisseurs around the world.”
Sotheby’s first auctioned the necklace in 1937. The piece originally belonged to the Viscountess Cowdray, Lady Pearson, who died in 1932.

BOOKISH TYPE: Pierre Bergé is to auction off his personal library, putting an initial cache of about 150 rare books under the hammer on Dec. 11 in Paris.
The former couture boss, 85, has amassed a collection of some 1,600 titles, including musical scores and manuscripts spanning six centuries. Six more auctions are to follow in 2016 and 2017.
Lots in the first sale, to be conducted by Pierre Bergé & Associés in collaboration with Sotheby’s at Drouot, range from the first edition of St. Augustine’s “Confessions,” printed around 1470, to William Burrough’s “Scrap Book 3” from 1979. Jean Cocteau’s “Le Requiem” from 1962 contains a personal dedication to Bergé and is estimated to fetch between 2,000 and 3,000 euros, or about $ 2,230 to $ 3,350 at current exchange rates.

A guitar played by George Harrison in the Beatles' early days, previously on display in a British museum, goes on auction in New York Friday, valued at $ 400,000 to $ 600,000. The electric guitar is the two-day auction's star item, amid hundreds of possessions once owned by rock 'n' roll's biggest stars, which auctioneers hope will rake in millions. Harrison borrowed the guitar while his was under repair and was photographed and filmed playing it at concerts, said Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien's Auctions. "It was played by Harrison in the Cavern Club in the early 60s," said Nolan, referring to a Liverpool nightclub that gave birth to the world's biggest band.
The starting bid is set at $ 800,000.

GREENLAND, N.H. — It was perhaps the one competition involving presidential contenders in New Hampshire that Donald Trump had a legitimate chance to win.
In an effort to raise money and bring some attention to the largely rural county in northwest New Hampshire, the Grafton County Republican Committee’s tie auction featured neckwear donated by potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates.
Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump was among the 18 possible Republican White House hopefuls who contributed a tie to the auction.
But when the online auction ended at midnight on Saturday, the famously well-dressed Trump — the one prospective candidate in the field who sells his own line of neckwear — finished in a disappointing 13th place.
Trump’s tie sold for $ 142.50, according to NH Journal — not bad, for a 13-place finish.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.), whose tie sold for $ 355, was the winner of the contest.
Among the dozen prospective presidential contenders whose neckwear sold for more than Trump’s were former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, former Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R-Md.) and Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.), who, during a recent campaign swing through New Hampshire, wore a sweater that he purchased for $ 1 at Kohl’s.
As he has previously insisted in three other presidential election cycles, Trump says that he is seriously considering a 2016 White House bid.
Those who missed out on the opportunity to purchase one of Trump’s ties can take heart: His “Donald J. Trump Jaguar Stripe B Tie” is on sale through Macy’s for $ 26.99.

Marty McFly’s hoverboard from “Back to the Future Part 2” is going up for auction in October.
Radio Times reports the iconic film prop, which is currently valued between $ 17,000 and $ 26,000, is one of many pieces of classic film memorabilia that will be auctioned off at London’s Westfield shopping centre in the fall. The auction is a collaboration between movie prop reseller Prop Store and cinema chain Vue Entertainment.
For those who aren’t familiar, the hoverboard was used by Michael J. Fox’s character in the 1989 film. According to USA Today, the prop is made of solid wood. Prop Store project manager Sian Anderson told the outlet that the hoverboard also features a “rare ball-bearing spinning footpad.”
It’s worth mentioning that the hoverboard does not actually hover. Sorry.
There are 375 props up for auction, including McFly’s board. Radio Times reports that other items include a Golden Ticket from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” ($ 26,000 – $ 34,000), Arnold Schwarzenegger’s biker outfit from “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” ($ 38,000) and Captain Nemo’s Nautilus Car from “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” ($ 69,000 – $ 102,000).
Those are some hefty price tags, but this collection only scratches the surface of what some devout collectors are willing to pay. In November, an anonymous buyer paid $ 4,085,000 for one of the two title statues featured in “The Maltese Falcon,” per Yahoo Movies.
