Charlize Theron is auctioning off dresses from her closet to raise money for her charity fighting AIDS in Africa.

The Monster star has donated designer gowns she has previously worn for the Charity Buzz auction benefiting the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (Ctaop).

Among the items up for grabs is a Versace little black dress the actress wore to an awards ceremony, as well as a purple Lanvin design she turned heads in at France's Cannes Film Festival in 2004.

South African-born Theron co-founded Ctaop in 2007 to help keep young Africans safe from HIV/AIDS. The organisation has helped over 50,000 kids receive health education.
