Karl Lagerfeld Makes SpongeBob Squarepants Pure Gold

1202spkarl.jpg

If you missed your chance to cuddle up to Karl Lagerfeld‘s suit-wearing bear, unfortunately now you’ve missed the chance to cuddle up to another of his fuzzy creations. This past weekend, a golden SpongeBob SquarePants, re-designed/imagined by the famous gloved designer, was auctioned off for nearly $2000 at an event in Paris that sought to raise money for the WWF (the World Wildlife Fund, sadly not the now-defunct World Wrestling Federation, as we’d hoped). Apparently the event must have also been connected to the Nickelodeon, given that Lagerfeld was just one of several celebrities who worked in giving the network’s character a new look:

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 Ines de la Fressange, French singer Patrick Bruel and Greek TV presenter Nikos Aliagas.
