PARIS, Nov 13, 2007 (AFP) - A pair of Doc Martens for Cinderella, thigh-high boots for the princess in Beauty and the Beast -- 25 European designers have given Disney's heroines a fashion makeover for a Paris auction to help UNICEF.

Cinderella's new clothes, including a glass slipper designed by Baccarat, go under the hammer at an auction of the 25 costumes organised by Christie's and Disneyland Paris on November 19, with the proceeds going to the United Nations Children's Fund.

Among the designers involved are Azzedine Alaia, Corine Cobson, Chantal Thomass, Eymeric François, Nathalie Garçon and Franck Sorbier for France; Britain's Vivienne Westwood and Paul Costelloe; as well as Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Hannibal Laguna and Lorenzo Caprile of Spain.

The costumes will be on display at the auction house from November 16 to 19.
