I am a subscriber to Vanity Fair. Every year, before the Oscar’s, they have an issue called “The Hollywood Issue”. I am always impressed with the cover photography of these issues and never fail to feel inspired after viewing it. Last year, I was inspired to do my own cover and this is what I ended up with.
This year, I was inspired to try another one and Integrity Toys’ newly revamped Fashion Royalty products were my muses.
Models: “Evermore” Vanessa in her original outfit, Workshop Elise in Mattel Hervé Léger by Max Azria, “Bellissima” Natalia in her original outfit, “After Tonight” Eugenia in Mattel “Hollywood Cast Party”, “Baby It’s You” Chip, “Black Orchid” Vanessa in Bellissima Couture gown and Jakki Peters hat.
Now…are we all set for the Oscar’s? I think so.
Okay…so here we are an hour later than my last post and Mattel decides to give us some information. She will be available TOMORROW. They don’t specify a time but I am thinking around 9AM pacific time because that is when Barbiecollector.com historically make things available. There is no guarantee of that though. She retails for $150 and will be available here

If you have a second, go to the link above and check out all the cool new photos of her which show the back of the dress and a 360 degree view of the doll. If you are at all interested in getting this doll, I would think about purchasing sooner rather than later. The buzz on this lady indicates a possible quick sell out.
Finally we have more information on the Hervé Léger by Max Azria Barbie® doll. According to Dutch Barbie World ( Thanks for the information Rogier!!), this giftset will be available October 15 at BarbieCollector and at select Hervé Léger and Neiman Marcus stores. The price I am hearing most often is $150 smackers. Don’t quote me on that because this amount has not been confirmed by Mattel yet but I think the price will be around that. She was designed by Linda Kyaw in collaboration with Hervé Léger by Max Azria .
I know where I will be come October 15th.
