Reckless 2016 Nu Face Doll Capsule Collection! Swoon!


A Clueless inspired collection designed by Jessy Ayala was hinted at by David Buttry at the Supermodel Convention.  We were told it was amazing.  I am pretty pleased with the results.  Finally we are back to an edgy YOUTHFUL runway look for the Nu Face Models. Last year's Balmain stuff was okay, but I did not get any of it as there was way too much black.  Integrity is giving us an interesting, cohesive collection inspired by looks from Moschino, Givenchy, Chanel, and others with a direct nod to the festive fashions in the film Clueless.  I can definitely see the influence in the berets, fur, hair styles, and knee socks.  Very fun.  Much of the line seems to be already sold out from dealers already...so good luck getting one! My thoughts are below in BLUE.

She Owns Everything 
Erin S.™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 700 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Erin 2.0
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: Cream
Hair Color: Golden Blond

Erin S. is the main fashionista on campus! She runs the show and sets the trends so that the other girls in school don't have to navigate the murky waters of fashion... She decides what's cool and what's not for them! It's that easy! Now, whether or not they all want to follow in her reckless steps, that's another topic completely. But, suffice it to say, she just pities those who won't follow her down the catwalk of life.

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features fully rooted hair and comes complete with an ultra-detailed outfit composed of a perfectly fitted faux-leather bustier and tweed skirt, a blush pink 3/4 sleeve "fur" coat, short mesh socks, high-heels, a jewelry set, a clutch purse, a pair of graffiti printed opera length faux-leather fingerless gloves, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.
LOVE HER!  I am happy to say that I am confirmed for this one.  I think she may end up being one of my Chanel girls for my little Scream Queen project.  She is perfect. I think her haircolor is a good match for Chanel No. 5.  I adore those glove, the fur, and the little garter corset top.  Amazing detail. Also the HAIR BARRETTES! So cute.

Nadja R.™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 600 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Nadja 2.0
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: Dark A-Tone
Hair Color: Dark Cocoa Brown

Nadja's no mindless follower, she's a fashion force of her own. With her best friend Erin S., Nadja leads the pack and guides the other fashionistas through the trendy aisles of the most chichi stores in town. They are always on the lookout for new looks that they can adopt and master as their own, until they trickle down and are no longer cool... Then, they start the cycle all over again, just discarding the old and "passé" faster than yesterday's news!

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features fully rooted hair and comes complete with an ultra-sexy two-piece outfit, a chain embroidered "fur" coat, thigh-high boots, choker, a jewelry set, graffiti printed purse, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

I am not feeling this one. I was really hoping for a Nadja with micro braids like the amazing Marie Laveau Coven Doll...but alas no. Not a fan of the outfit either.

Mad Love
Rayna™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 500 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Rayna
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: FR White
Hair Color: Champagne Blond

Every trendy crowd needs a more "artsy" type and Rayna is the one. In her case, one must not confuse artsy with "grungy", because Miss Rayna is definitely anything but. A true fashion lover, Rayna defines trends of her own and is often the envy of the other girls with her unique style!

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features rooted hair and comes complete with a sequined long-sleeved shirt, a soft pink faux-leather mini-dress, a black beret, a quilted purse, sunglasses, chunky high-heeled boots, an alternate pair of painted "Gloved" hands, a jewelry set, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

I love the outfit and I hope to pick it up loose later on.  This one seems to be the hardest to find and I assume it is due to the lower edition size and the fact that we don't see Rayna that often.  However, I don't like her screening.  It seems too dark for this outfit.

Ayumi N.™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 600 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Ayumi 3.0
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: Hungarian
Hair Color: Almond Brown

When Ayumi shows up on the scene, every other girl knows better than to get in her way. A true legend of style, Ayumi doesn't take any grief from anyone and will gladly tell other members of her entourage when their look is not up to par. She's been known to give unfashionable types "the look", which usually means: outta my sight, you unsightly, unfashionable Earthling and don't come back until you know how to dress!

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features fully rooted hair and comes complete with an intricately constructed two-piece outfit, a "fur" enhanced jacket, a graffiti printed purse, thigh-high white socks, a pair of black boots, a jewelry set, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. 

Ayumi is cute but I passed.  She sure does look a whole lot like the new Collette here.  I love the little skirt and those booties are adorable.

Eden™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
IT DIRECT / W CLUB EXCLUSIVE
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 700 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Eden
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: Japan
Hair Color: Soft Copper Red

Eden is the music lover of the group and her love of rock concerts is well known. She loves to keep an eye on what the other fashionable girls are doing, but usually puts her own unique twist on the most trendy looks, which consistently brands her as her own kind of trendsetter. She's the cool girlfriend that every guy wants to have and the loyal, hot-looking friend that every girl wants to show up at the party with! This girl is on fire!

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features fully rooted hair and comes dressed in a custom made layered skirt, with  laser cut "faux-charred" effect at the hem, a faux-leather jacket, a quilted backpack purse, chunky black heels, black thigh-high socks, black leather cut-off gloves, a jewelry set, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. 

Eden is going to be a lottery doll for the 2017 W Club.  She is gorgeous. She looks more than a little like the highly coveted Style Mantra Eden.  I am definitely going to try for her and hoping that my two memberships will be enough to make it happen for me.

Giselle Diefendorf™ Dressed Doll
The NU. Face™ Collection
Approximate Ship Date: Early Spring 2017
Limited Edition Size: 600 Dolls Only
Suggested Retail Price: $140.00
Head Sculpt: Giselle D.
Body Type: NU. Face 2.0
Skintone: FR White
Hair Color: Midnight Brown

Wanna talk about style? Speak to Giselle D.! This girl knows how it's done, so much that she actually creates the hottest looks and her friends are more than happy to model for her. As a matter of fact, her look is so hot, it's on fire!

This 12.5-inch fully articulated doll, features fully rooted hair and comes complete with an ultra-detailed outfit which is composed of distressed cropped jeans with zipper detail, a delicately feminine blouse with a laser cut "faux-charred" effect on the scarf, a faux-leather bustier/belt, a black beret and veil, a quilted purse, a pair of yellow pumps, alternate "painted glove" hands, a jewelry set, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

LOVE HER! Confirmed! I think this Giselle will pair nicely with my gorgeous convention Intimate Reveal Agnes. They will be my own version of the boring blonde Style Mogul sisters set.  I love the little mint top with the burnt bow.  The whole thing is super cute.  

The best thing about this set is the tight color palette and the amazing amount of separates that will be so fun for mixing and matching. This is a set that demands playing and redressing.  I am a fan of that. Here's hoping we get something equally fun for the Fashion Royalty gals and the Industry line.
