Chanel, Dior, Lanvin And Other Designers Create Dolls For Auction To Benefit UNICEF

For its eleventh Les Frimousses initiative, UNICEF has recruited forty-two fashion houses—Chanel, Dior, Lanvin, and more—to craft high fashion dolls, reports WWD. The toys will be exhibited at the Petit Palais in Paris from November 26 to December 1, before being put up for auction at the George V Hotel on December 2.

Last year, the bidding for each designer doll began at $647, which obviously makes them more for the adult fashionista than for the preschool set. But considering the proceeds go to an amazing charity, the true lover of fashion may find these to be a perfectly whimsical treat during the holiday season.

WHEN:  November 26 – December 2, 2013
