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.

“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

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.

FANTASY SHOPPING: A chair designed by Hedi Slimane, original sketches by Giorgio Armani and Alber Elbaz, a signed portrait of Marisa Berenson — these are just some of the prestigious lots being auctioned off to benefit staff at French retirement homes, which have been sharply hit by the coronavirus epidemic.
Journalist Laurence Benaïm, known for her definitive biography of Yves Saint Laurent, pulled together the auction in just one week, tapping her high-profile industry contacts for exceptional donations.
In addition to precious objects, the sale offers plenty of the kind of experiences one can only dream of in lockdown: private visits of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, the headquarters of Kering in Paris, the Château de Versailles and the Château de la Colle Noire — the latter courtesy of Dior Parfum.
Or how about a writing workshop on memory with award-winning writer Leïla Slimani, a lesson in baking macaroons with pastry chef Pierre Hermé, or a photograph of Saint Laurent and his muse Betty Catroux, signed by Catroux herself?
The virtual auction, to take place from April 24 to 27, will benefit charity SOS EHPAD, a nonprofit organization supported by the Alzheimer Research Foundation and its founding president, Dr. Olivier de Ladoucette,
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,
74 items ranging from clothing to concept drawings are going up for sale.
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.”

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.”

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.

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.

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.
Check out Marty McFly’s hoverboard in action.
