Our favorite celebrities have many special gifts: looking good on camera, giving roundabout answers in interviews, attracting herds of paparazzi, selling their eponymous lines on QVC, and occasionally acting and singing, but we had no idea of the extent of their talents until now.
In support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a few big names like Matthew McConaughey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Eva Longoria have taken time out of their star-tastic lives to paint their message of hope on the blank suede canvas of a few Classic Mini Boots for UGG® Australia’s annual Art & Sole benefit auction.
Okay so you won’t find anything resembling a Monet or a Van Gogh, (perhaps a few that look like some of your old second grade abstracts), but needless to say, it is for a good cause. And unlike some of the more bizarre memorabilia that is sold at auction on eBay, (an ‘abandoned’ hairbrush of Angelina Jolie, a discarded used tissue from Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton’s knickers – glad to know she wears them), these one-of-a-kind Uggs are functional and actually worth the money.
Our favorite is this henna-inspired design from Liv Tyler that is actually quite well done. From most of the other gals you get the obvious flowers, hearts, and butterflies, but of those we enjoyed the ones by Cindy Crawford, Jessica Simpson, and Kelly Ripa the best.
