The Hollywood veteran portrayed ruthless attorney Patty Hewes on the show and she is making use of her character's high-powered fashions to boost funds for Bring Change 2 Mind, the organisation she founded to help bring an end to the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illnesses.

The "fabulous" clothes are set to go under the hammer in a series of 10-day sales on from 10 July (13).
