BRITISH menswear heritage label Dunhill is gearing up to host a charity auction in aid of The Prostate Cancer Charity this Valentine's Day and has asked some famous ladies to lend their lips to the cause. Jerry Hall, Louise Redknapp, Tamsin Eggerton, Poppy Delevingne, Gillian Anderson, Emilia Fox, Joanna Page and Keeley Hawes have all planted a kiss on a Dunhill collar to support the cause.
"Lipstick on a gentleman's collar is the epitome of old school glamour and romance," Dunhill creative director - and the British Fashion Awards' Menswear Designer of the Year - Kim Jones told VOGUE.COM. "We have taken this iconic notion and added a charity element - by auctioning a number of Dunhill collars kissed by great ladies. The best bit is that all the proceeds from the auction will go to The Prostate Cancer Charity."
The collars are now on display at the London Home of Alfred Dunhill, Bourdon House in Mayfair, and will be auctioned on eBay. All proceeds will go to The Prostate Cancer Charity and each successful bidder will not only receive the autographed collar but also a voucher for a Dunhill custom made tailored shirt, to be redeemed at Bourdon House.

Auction ends of February 11.
