Everyone’s favorites dessert-named doll has gotten a designer makeover in preparation for Paris Fashion Week!
Several French designers, including Sonia Rykiel, have been asked to make one-of-a-kind Strawberry Shortcake dolls which will be auctioned off for charity.
The money will go to Ce Ke Du Bonheur, which helps improve the quality of life for kids and teens in hospitals.
Aww, how great!
We’re glad the dolls still look like, well, dolls and not runway versions of themselves.

Kim Kardashian recently let Kanye West ransack her kloset, but instead of throwing them to the curb, Kim decided to auction them off for charity.
The reality TV kween tweeted:
While it’s amazing that Kim is giving the money to a church, couldn’t she have chosen an organization in a city where families don’t make $110,257 on average?
Just a thought.

Jane Birkin's namesake Hermes bag sold for big bucks on eBay.
The charity auction opened on April 6th at the low, low price of $2000, but skyrocketed to $162,840 by the time bidding closed this week.
That's a lot of money for a bag that may have been sat on by her cat, but at least it's going to a good cause. All the proceeds from Jane's Birkin is being donated to the British Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan.
