Celebrities like Sting and Neve Campbell have donned some of Elton’s most famous stage clothes to raise money for his charity.
They are modelling the clothes to be sold at the Out of the Closet sale in Britain’s GQ magazine.David Furnish is also participating.
Sting says, “Elton and David are dear friends of mine, and I have the utmost respect for them as people and as campaigners.
“One of my favourite shots was with me wearing David’s jacket and a pair of Elton’s glasses. I looked a bit like Dame Edna Everage.”
Elton says, We always get a fantastic response – I think the idea that the items we all buy and enjoy can help someone in dire need, particularly at this time of year, really strikes a chord.
Fans will soon have the opportunity to buy the clothes starting Saturday at the Flower Cellars in Covent Garden. More details are below:
