IN DESIGNERS EARS: Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Marc Ecko and Alice Temperley don’t just create runway looks — they also create music playlists, which fans can bid on through Tonic’s iPod Auction Series to benefit Music Rising (, with all proceeds going to rescue the musical culture of the Central Gulf. Those four designers are currently being featured on the e-commerce site that focuses on “effortless activism and social good,” which between now and August will add new celebrities each week — totaling more than 70, including Bill Clinton, Madonna, Scarlett Johansson and Gisele Bündchen.

Jacobs chose Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears and Jay-Z, while Karan opted for Barbra Streisand, Annie Lennox and Melissa Etheridge.
