Barbie for big girls.

Reigning Grace Revealed!

Back in April, Integrity Toys broke with tradition and released a sketch of a doll that was purportedly an indication of the theme for this year’s convention.  See original blog post here.

I admit…I was one of those that paid attention more to the sketch than the reference to the movie on this one.  I was thinking Eugenia was going to be brunette.   Well “Duh” Rebecca…the actress this design was channeling was Grace Kelly!  Grace, is blonde.  Guess I should have known.  Other than the fact that this is the third blonde in a black dress from IT this month, I LOVE her.  Even though I am kind of disappointed in the blonde version ( would have preferred raven on this one), I am still buying.  I will immediately switch out the silver necklace for pearls but the dress is out of the park gorgeous. 

No information was released about skin tone on this one but she looks to be either Japan or Cream to me.  Will have to wait and see.

    I think we all expected her to be dark haired from the sketch. I was kind of surprised when I saw her release pics. Still pretty, I’m glad I I got her. Eager to see the rest of the Cinematic Convention dolls.

  2. I had deja vu when I first saw her. I was thinking the same things you were, and yet, I also ordered her. I was hoping for my first dark haired Eugenia ever (due to being a noobie 🙂 and I don’t have one). I admire Integrity, but I would have appreciated knowing that the previous doll that I just plunked down a deposit on this week,( with a ponytail , same long bang,similar hair colour, a different black dress, almost her twin) was so much the same, I
    would have passed on one of them.

    Hello Rebecca,

    Judging by her hands, I think she has cream skintone.
    IT still utilize big original FR2 hands form the cream skintone body dolls.
    The gift set veroniques has a cream skintone with FR2 original hands. 🙂

    I hope it helps!
    Awww, the convention’s around the corner. Please, enjoy every minute of the event. I wish I could make it to the convention this year.
    I can imagine, it’s going to be fabulous!

    Hugs from NYC
