She may not be featured in fashion magazines, but she still is decked out in fine style. She’s the “India princess” doll, as named by three student judges, who gave her top honors in the city-wide Best-Dressed Goodfellows Doll Contest on Nov. 22 at the Compuware Art Gallery. For the second year in a row, a Goodfellows doll dressed by a Compuware employee won first place honors in the contest. The company has been a long- time financial supporter of the Goodfellows Contest, and has displayed the dolls in the final competition since 2003. This year’s Compuware beauty was selected out of 150 finalists from 12,000 dolls, which will be distributed for Christmas to girls ages 4-10 from low-income families in Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck and River Rouge.
