Joanna Lumley (she'll always be Patsy Stone to us!) is auctioning off her alter ego's Ab Fab wardrobe on November 13 at London's Kerry Taylor. Auction-goers will be able to bid on 16 items worn on-air by the fictional cocktail-swigging fashion editrix, ranging from a pinstriped Dolce & Gabbana jacket and a Betty Jackson gold velour cagoule to an Alexander McQueen vest and Charles Jourdan chaussures. The sale will also include designer pieces from Lumley's personal collection (think Chanel, Moschino, and Pucci) as well as costumes from her roles in The Trail of The Pink Panther and The Avengers. All proceeds will benefit The Prince's Trust, a UK charity helping disadvantaged youths complete their education or enter the work force. The 66-year-old actress reminisced about her days on the cult British sitcom to Daily Mail UK: "Patsy dressed exactly as a fashion editor would: the perfect Chanel jacket no one else has got. She dressed immaculately most of the time, in lovely neutrals; she always looked elegant. The mistake people make when they dress up as her is that they make her quite tarty, which she wasn't. In Ab Fab, we were made up as old women, with bald wigs and jowly necks, and we looked fantastic!"
