Are you fashionable? Are you the first to know the latest trends? Are your friends constantly in awe of your stellar wardrobe and rockin’ ability to accessorize like a rock star?

Did you answer yes to all of these questions?

I definitely didn’t.

I am not what you would consider hip…by any stretch of the imagination. But you know who is? Celebrities. And it just so happens that Seventeen magazine wants to help people become more fashionable and support young girls around the world – all at the same time.

WOWZERS

Seventeen‘s Style Stars of 2008 eBay auction features awesome (and fashionable) clothes and accessories from today’s hottest young stars: The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Hayden Panettiere and many, many more.

The best part? (Besides the opportunity to drastically improve your wardrobe…) All of the proceeds from this auction go to support the Girl Effect.

The idea behind the Girl Effect is that when you help a girl in the developing world get an education or training to start a business, she is less likely to marry early, have an unplanned pregnancy, or contract HIV/AIDS. Her success can help her family, her community and her country. And ultimately, when you put all of these successful young women together, they can change the world.

Or even better, bid on your favroite auction items – become a little more fashionable and help empower girls around the world!
