    $7.5k charity bid for Sharon Stone's jeans


    GIVING the shirt off your back used to be the ultimate sign of generosity.

    But Hollywood stars Sharon Stone, Emma Watson and Benicio del Toro have gone one better, donating their trousers for a new charity drive called

    Jeans For Refugees.

    Singers Elton John and

    Lily Allen have also handed over their denims to the American artist and designer Johny Dar to transform and then auction off for the International Committee

    For Refugees.

    Within hours of the jeans going up on online auction site Catawiki, someone had already bid 5,000 euros (S$7,465) for Stone's.

    The multi-coloured makeover of singer Pink's jeans had offers reaching 3,000 euros on Tuesday.

    Other stars helping out include rocker Mick Jagger, models Claudia Schiffer,

    Elle Macpherson and Kate Moss, actresses Eva Longoria and Audrey Tautou and singer-turned-designer

    Victoria Beckham.
