Doing good has never looked so chic. On March 29, Christie's will host its Bid to Save the Earth live auction followed by a Runway to Green fashion show, the proceeds of which will benefit four environmental charities. For those who can't make it to the main event, the auction house has partnered with Chartitybuzz.com, which will host online bidding on truly one-of-a-kind items donated by a cast of cultural heavy-hitters. Up for grabs are a day with former president Bill Clinton, a one-hour tennis lesson with John McEnroe, front-row seats to the Chanel couture show followed by a meeting with Karl Lagerfeld and a tour of Mlle. Chanel's home, breakfast with Tory Burch and a hefty gift certificate to her store, a Damien Hirst-designed Fendi bag, a stay on the superyacht Lady Sheridan during the Cannes Film Festival, dinner with Her Majesty Queen Noor in her D.C.-area home and a slew of exclusive travel opportunities. The online lots are open until April 7, so ladies and gentlemen, let the bidding begin. Bidtosavetheearth.org; looks from the Runway to Green event will be available on net-a-porter.com.
