Designers Create Bespoke Fashionista Dolls For Unicef

Chanel, Dior and Lanvin (oh my) are just a few of the stylish luxury labels that have created a one-off designer doll to be auctioned off next month in aid of childrens’ charity Unicef.

The designer doll initiative, now in it’s 11th edition and know as Les Frimousses (or little faces for those of us that have forgotten le GCSE Francais) has 42 fabulous fashion designers taking part. Each has designed a bespoke figure inspired by Paris. We heart the couture-clad Lanvin lady rocking this season’s statement logo jewellery, but our fave has to be Monsieur Lagerfeld’s mini Coco Chanel in the labels signature skirt suit. Tres chic indeed!

The dolls are on display at Petit Palais in Paris from today until 1 December and will go under the hammer the next day. FYI, to get your mitts on one of these fash toys you’ll be looking at parting with the better part of £500 – all in the name of charity, obvs! Funds go towards providing vaccinations for children in the Darfur region of Sudan. Ok, we’re sold!
