For years insurance company MetLife has been associated with the image of Peanuts character Snoopy. Now, they have teamed up with designers and celebrities to create one-of-a-kind Peanuts-inspired clothing to be auctioned for charity. The auction is running in three waves, with new designs being added every ten days through the month of October. Such items as this Isaac Mizrahi couture Charlie Brown dress will be available with bidding starting at only $10! How’s that for affordable couture? Expect more Peanuts-inspired frocks from Betsey Johnson, Liz Claiborne, Pamella Roland, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Heatherette, Jason Wu, View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck andProject Runway‘s Laura Bennett just to name a few. All the proceeds from the auction will benefit Dress for Success, a non-profit organization which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Cute dress, I like it.

Jaslene and Caridee were in that show, too!

Kind of ridiculous. I think the whole point of Charlie Brown is that he is not couture.

Kudos for these designers doing something different and fun and then giving all the money to Dress for Success. I shop on eBay and this is really a fun event. It appears these are one of a kind designs too! Now if they only had my size I would go as Peppermint Patty for Halloween!

I think it’s cute. I’ll be surprised if the rest of the line remains tasteful, though.

I was lucky enough to attend the Snoopy Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week and let me tell you…it was quite a sight to see! The Bryant Park Tent (capacity 1,000) was completely overflowing…in fact, I had to stand in the rafters. ALL of the designs were creative and I wouldn’t mind bidding on a few of them. My favorite, though, is Kristin Chenoweth’s Sally inspired dress worn by JoJo.

Personally, I go for classic cuts and colors. And to me it’s not creative, it’s Charlie Brown-there’s nothing original about that. But I’ll give it to her, she pulled it off.
