Out The Closet '09 GQ Photo Shoot
Stars including STING, NEVE CAMPBELL and NATALIE IMBRUGLIA have donned some of SIR ELTON JOHN's most famous stage clothes to raise money for his charity.
The Rocket Man holds regular fundraising events for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and his celeb pals agreed to help him offload his designer cast-offs for the Out Of The Closet event.
And the stars, including the singer's husband David Furnish, have modelled the clothes up for grabs for a spread in GQ magazine.
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."
John adds, '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 have the opportunity to buy the clothes in a specially-designed shop in London from Saturday (12Dec09).
