Online consignment site Vestiaire Collective might be as good at raising money for charity as it is at raising money for its own growth. For its second-ever celebrity charity auction, it's has some of the most stylish women in the world selling their stuff, from Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o and U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson, to Chanel muse Kiera Knightley and the perennially flawless Diane Kruger. Not only are they ladies who frequently appear on international best dressed lists, but they're also selling exact items that have landed them on said lists. We remember Nyong'o's Miu Miu mini skirt (which she likely got for free as a former face of the brand) and Kruger's Dion Lee dress in particular.

Meanwhile, Caroline Issa is selling several items that have presumably been street style-shot too many times to be worn again, and Lena Dunham is giving up some extremely cute and colorful dresses by (her friend) Rachel Antonoff, Lanvin and Dries van Noten. Watson's vertiginous Dior heels struck our fancy, and Olivia Palermo, Dree Hemingway and Charlotte Olympia Dellal are offering some great stuff, too.

The auction begins Thursday, Dec.3 and will be live for 12 days only. Proceeds benefit Women for Women International, which helps female survivors of war support their families by giving them job and health training. Vestiaire may have a lot of competition in the online consignment retail space, but when it comes to celebrity charity clothing auctions, this is among the best we've seen. See below for some of the best items (Knightley's were unavailable at press time, sadly) that will be available, with prices.
