Wow right?!!  I realize ( and totally relate to) that some are completely turned off by the fact that the shorts look was sported by Kendell Jenner on a red carpet event but lets not forget…the original look was designed by Alexandre Vauthier.

How adorable is that little butterfly headband?!!  And I love the blue and white print with the facial screening of this doll.  Soft and elegant.  I don’t know who the design inspiration was for the gown but the feeling for me is that soft mystical feel of the recent Dior couture shows by Maria Grazia Chiuri ,formally of Valentino.  I love the whimsy coupled with edginess of this giftset.  It’s a full meal deal!  This addition to the Nu.Face line is also part of the “Heirloom” collection so the backstory reveals that the little butterfly crown has been passed down through generations in Erin’s family.  Sweet story.  I am really enjoying the fun Jessy appears to be having with this line.

If you are a W Club member, you have until noon EST 9/8/2017 to order this one.  Check for the links in your email.  If you are not a member, check the secondary markets after this beauty is released ( not until 2018).

I am feeling an Elie Saab vibe here…the picture below is from his 2017 Resort collection.  The fact that he used wedge shoes also with this look makes me think this was one of the inspirations for this look.

So…how do I feel about this reveal?  I love the facial screening!  Green eyes on a pale skinned raven Agnes…yummm!  Also kind of happy they went with the nude lip.  It feels very on trend for right now.  This also makes her infinitely more re-dressable.   I am thrilled that the jumpsuit isn’t black.  I think jewel tones definitely fit with the “Riviera” theme. I adore the jewelry!  What concerns me is the fabric shown.  I don’t know if it flows like the original design does.  It looks kind of stiff to me but then…that could just be the image and how the model is posed.  Also…what is with this purse?  Did they want to go for Christmas colors?  I don’t think I would have chosen red.  I may be in a minority here but I like the wedge shoes.  It’s more casual and we don’t have shoes like this so if I want to dress this outfit up, I can certainly find a pair of black strappy sandals in my IT box.  Also, I am hoping the hair isn’t too “crunchy” as in…stiff.  It looks like it might be though.  It does help with those annoying flyaways that I end up editing out in PS later anyway Winking smile
