Penelope Cruz combined her brains and beauty to organize a benefit auction of Hollywood glam gowns with all proceeds going to help Haiti. The auction benefits the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization. That’s Penn for Sean Penn who has been working on the ground in the devastated island nation. Cruz aptly held the event in Cannes where the rich and famous flitted around for the festival, and where Cruz’s rumored fiancee Javier Bardem won the highest honors for his performance in Biutiful. The two were pictured returning to Madrid today.
The auction featured red carpet stunners donated by the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Diane Kruger, Charlize Theron, Naomi Watts, Marion Cotillard, Demi Moore, Gisele Bundchen, Anne
Hathaway, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow. Cruz herself also donated a frock, all combined to raise a third of a million dollars. See, good style can go a long way.
