At the end of each year, a flurry of photos floods Flickr and doll boards with groupings of collectors favorite dolls for the year. I always have these grand ideas of doing a group photo too and never seem to get around to it . This year, I had a flash of inspiration and decided I was going to MAKE the time to do it…so.. here it is. I was inspired by this years Vanity Fair Hollywood Edition.
In no particular order, my favorite dolls for 2012 are
1) Glam Addict Giselle
2) Gala Gown Silkstone Barbie
3) Fame by Frame Imogen
4) Lilac Frost Poppy Parker
5) High Profile Eugenia
The WClub announced a new 2012 exclusive to their members last week. Her name is Lilac Frost and Integrity and David Buttry have given us another treat for the year. You have to be a WClub member to buy.
Here is the writeup from Integrity on her…
Presenting: "Lilac Frost" Poppy Parker!
There is a brisk chill this early morning in New York City. Miss Poppy Parker is on Fifth Avenue on her way to not just any Go-See. She will be seen by a room full of casting agents, ad executives, art directors and event coordinators who will decide if she will be selected from the hundreds of other models. She hopes those extra acting classes she has been taking on the weekends pay off and put her on top. If chosen, she’ll be a spokes-model of International proportion!
Miss Parker spent a week shopping for just the right look for this day. Poppy’s lovely green eyes and painted lashes are accentuated by lovely lilac and beige eye shadow. Her lips are a soft coral. She styled her lovely golden blond hair into a side parted flip. It is a chic, yet young look. The same could be said for her ensemble. Her suit is in pale lilac brocade with a warm white fur trim collar. It is topped off with a frosted raspberry flocked hat. She accessorized her look with white gloves, white heels and her favorite "leather" handbag. A lavender diamond bracelet and earrings complete this look of success. "Lilac Frost" Poppy Parker uses the "Japan" skin tone. Wish her luck

There are many of us who will be humming the Mary Tyler Moore theme while we wait for this lovely lady . She doesn’t have to think about it though…I think she has already made it. Thank You Mr. Buttry!!
