Boy George has gathered some of his celebrity friends together for a series of special portraits with a difference – each star was asked to dress as their favorite celebrity.

The portraits – which feature Sadie Frost as Madonna, Paloma Faith as Boy George and Mathew Horne as Adam Ant – will raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust when they go under the hammer in March.

“I have just done this exhibition for the Hep Trust, which is a charity,” explained the pop star on UK’s The Morning TV show. “Apparently 75 per cent of people that have it don’t know they have it.”

According to the charity: “The Hepatitis C Trust is the national UK charity for hepatitis C and has been operating since 2001. It is an entirely patient-led and patient-run organisation: all of its staff, both paid and voluntary, either have hepatitis C or have had it and have cleared it after treatment. Historically, hepatitis C has been neglected, partly because there has been no concerted patient voice. People with hepatitis c have typically kept quiet because it is infectious and because it has been wrongly stigmatized as ‘a drug users’ disease’.”
