Olivia Wilde says that low-cut, shimmering black-and-silver Gucci gown you saw her in at Sunday's Golden Globes is going on the auction bloc to raise money for Haitian earthquake victims, and she urged others to do the same with their red carpet designer duds.

The "House M.D." actress says she will also be donating the shiny Judith Leiber purse she carried to the Globes to the organization Artists for Peace and Justice, which will put them up for auction. She promised 100 percent of the proceeds will go to help earthquake victims.

Mickey Rourke said he's already sent a contribution to support Haiti, but he'd like to hang on to his custom-made David August suit for a while.

"I'll donate my boots," Rourke said on the red carpet. "Not my suit."

George Clooney didn't feel a bit awkward about celebrating at a flashy Golden Globes ceremony days after an earthquake devastated Haiti.

He was too busy lining up talent for the "Hope for Haiti" fundraising telethon he's taking part in next week.

"This is the perfect place for me to go and recruit some people," said the 48-year-old actor.

The show airs Friday on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT. It will benefit Haitian-born Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti Foundation, as well as UNICEF, Oxfam America, Partners in Health and the Red Cross.

Clooney will host the Los Angeles segment of the show. Jean helms the portion from New York and CNN's Anderson Cooper will be in Haiti. No other celebrities appearances or musical acts have been announced.

While most stars made their way across a rain-soaked red carpet with the help of umbrella-toting publicists, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Gabourey Sidibe decided to go it alone, hoisting their own rain gear above their heads.

Several celebrity gentlemen stepped up to defend their leading ladies from the elements. Among them were David Arquette, who sheltered his wife, Courteney Cox, from the rain, while Tom Hanks did the same for his wife, Rita Wilson. Harrison Ford made sure fiance Calista Flockhart stayed dry. Watching out for Diane Kruger was Joshua Jackson.

"I love my dress," said Kruger. "I hope it doesn't get ruined by the rain."
