Pretty Poupées

Chanel (of course).
Jean-Paul Gaultier
Dolce & Gabbana
          On Monday, 75 one-of-a-kind dolls (poupées) designed by some of the world's most renowned couturiers and jewelers will be auctioned off at the Petit Palais in Paris to benefit UNICEF's vaccination program for the children of Darfour.

           In the 10 years since the Frimousses de Créateurs (translated something like "Designers' Pretty Little Faces") program was launched, the United Nations has raised 1,527,480 Euros and purchased approximately five million vaccines for Darfour.

          I thought you might like to see what some of the stars from the world of fashion have conjured up for the occasion, based on the theme "Yes Future" (in English).

          As we all know, one-of-a-kind equals collector's item, equals who knows what in the future.

Gorgeous little Poupees. And a very worthy Cause. Hard to decide...a toss up between Dolce & Gabbana and Ms. Barbie. And my vote goes to the home girl, Ms. Barbie...:)

How fun! Gucci wins my prize for Creativity, but you know I love the Chanel one too.

These poupees are are creative way of raising funds for such a worthy cause...........and perhaps a fun activity for children who are "bored" during the holiday season to create themselves!
Bon weekend

Very cool.

I must admit, I'd wear that Dior (if it were in black)... And I'd love every minute of it.

What a wonderful idea.
