Barbie for big girls.

Magnifique is Fantastique

When I saw the name on this doll I kept singing the words from a song in “Devil Wears Prada”…”Supersonic, maginfique, tres tres cool and tres tres chic”. 

She is definitely tres, tres chic.  the hair color is vibrant and beautiful.  It needs to be trained a bit when you take it out of the hair net but not too bad (it was packed with hair off to the side so you will need to push it or train it down to sit down against the neck).

She has a very sharp look to the left eye placement that frankly…borders on “wonky eye” for my taste.  I have photographed her at her best advantage but I had to work at it.  Not sure how I am feeling about that.  She is gorgeous.  Coloring and facial color screening is spot on.  Dress is beautiful and jewelry is beyond…really beyond.  But…that far to the left stare is looking slightly wrong for me.  Not sure what I am going to do yet.  Maybe it’s just mine so will be interested to hear what others are experiencing.

    Your photos and critique are fantastic as ever but even before you mentioned it I thought Oh, she’s got a bit of wonky eye…..it will be interesting to see what the others are like or whether yours needs to be seen by patient care X she’s still stunning

    • Yes, I agree Penny. This one will go back for another head as soon as I finish up a photo project with her 😉

    I think she is gorgeous, a little bit wonky, but gorgeous. The white, silver, lavender and red combo is my favorite. She has the same screening as other girls and I noticed some Oh la las, Powder puffs and Miss Amours have the same issue, but I think they are way more popular and people just ignore 🙂

    • She does have similar screening as Powder, Ooh La La and Amore. The lottery dolls though seemed to have, for the most part, missed out on major wonky eye. This one however did not. I will need to send this one back to IT quality care and see what they will do for me. I agree with you in that this color combo is so fabulous. LOVE!

    In the photos, her eye does look wonky. I noticed it with a couple of Ooh La La’s too as well as Amoure. But I see some have it and some don’t. It’s a shame because she really is a beautiful doll. I would contact patient care.
