Barbie for big girls.

Grace Kelly Silkstone is Here!!

Grace Kelly The Bride has arrived.  I was ready and waiting for this lady to hit the Barbie Collector shop.  I can’t remember when I have waited with such delight for a doll to arrive…well…okay so I can remember…when my convention boxes arrived with Matt Sutton OOAK’s ..but that’s not the point.  The point is I was very excited to receive this new Grace Kelly Silkstone.  She does not disappoint.  She is exquisite!!  I can’t believe the attention to detail on this lady.  I love, love, love the plain gold band on her ring finger and the little prayer book.

    • You are going to adore her Judy! Here face paint is really quite something.

  3. She is beautiful! I have my BC catalog right next to me with her on the cover.

    • Many times I look at the promo shots and say to myself ” yes, beautiful but…does the doll actually look like that?” In this case, the doll meets or exceeds the promo shots in my opinion. Of course, I am an avid Grace Kelly fan so that might have something to do with my enthusiasm LOL!

    • Thank you Art! I hope you get yours soon. She is very special and I adore here.

  7. She really is gorgeous. Do you think you will re-dress her, Rebecca, or do you keep your bride dolls as is?

    • Thank you Hilda! Well that is the question of the day now isn’t it LOL!!! I really want to redress her but normally I don’t redress the brides ( something about changing out of that beautiful wedding gown… stops me every time.) However, this lady’s face paint is so gorgeous that I keep seeing her in other fashions…..oh like…..Bellissimma Couture. 😉

    This got me very excited! I preordered mine four months ago and I am just as excited as you were waiting for her arrival! She is just lovely! Is her head material different from the “To Catch a Theif” doll?

    • I hope you receive yours soon Jis! She is amazing. Her head material is a harder plastic than the “To Catch a Theif” doll. Just like the other Silkstones.

    I would love to see her in my clothes as well, but I understand the wish to leave her as is. I guess you will have to get a second doll for re-dressing! And I think that I will order her as well, definitely to re-dress.

    • Heehee…you are such an enabler Miss Hilda. I swear you are my sister from another mother. I think I will have to get over the whole moratorium on bridal gown removal and get this lady into some Bellissima Couture. Your designs are made for this lady! So elegent and refined.
