SpongeBob Gets a Makeover

A SpongeBob SquarePants figurine was given a makeover by Karl Lagerfeld (think dark shades, a towering starched collar and fingerless gloves).

TOY STORY: A SpongeBob SquarePants figurine given a makeover by Karl Lagerfeld (think dark shades, a towering starched collar and fingerless gloves) attracted the highest bid at a recent Paris fundraiser for WWF, generating 1,000 euros, or about $1,500 at current exchange.
 
Numerous local personalities had autographed iconic objects linked to the cartoon character for the auction, which altogether raised 7,000 euros or about $11,000 at current exchange, including Inès de la Fressange, French singer Patrick Bruel and Greek TV presenter Nikos Aliagas.
