2017 Fashion Royalty Collection: La Femme

The story centers around a trip the the French Riviera for a European Fashion Conference. The fashions seem inspired from several sources. I see some Dolce & Gabbana, Caroline Herrera, maybe Chanel?

As soon as she heard about the big annual ETSA conference that was about to take place in the South of France, Eugenia grabbed her cousin Vanessa and immediately insisted that they make the trip with Adèle Makéda. Who better than those two to keep things smooth and make sure that no one from a competing firm could show up to rain on their parade? No matter what, all reasons are good to visit the Riviera!

Eugenia Perrin-Frost is a 12.5" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair. Eugenia channels her inner French girl with this soft and ultra-feminine look that just is just too adorable and sophisticated for words! Dressed in a pair of perfectly fitted capri pants and a sensuous off-the-shoulder blouse (with an extra-long bow detail on the back), Eugenia is ready for an afternoon stroll among the stalls of her favorite florists, where she picked up a most delicate bouquet of fresh roses. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Cute purse and blouse. I don't understand why they did not give us a view of the back with the bow detail. Lovely screening on her. For some reason, I have yet to own a Eugenia. While I like this outfit and the doll is pretty, I am passing. Her edition size is mighty high so perhaps I will be able to nab her later if I change my mind.

Natalia Fatalé is not about to let the Perrin family get the best of her and of course, since it would be too suspicious for her to attend the conference in person, she sends her number one confidante, sometimes-model and all-time trouble maker, Jordan Duval. Wait 'til Jordan comes back to Paris with the news that everything is about to change in their little world. Natalia will be green at the thought that she didn't attend the conference herself! It doesn't matter though, the only person everyone talked about was Jordan! Her fantastic style was the talk of the town!
 
Jordan Duval is a 12.5" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair. For her "recon" mission on the Riviera, Jordan opted for a re-invented version of the classic hostess outfit with a floor length, detachable turquoise satin skirt over delicately striped satin capri pants, topped by a faux-leather bustier that gives this sunny look an ultra-modern, yet soft and sophisticated edge. Jordan also opted to complete the look with colorful accessories that truly make her perfect cocoa skin tone stand out and shine! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

This seems like the blonde Jordan that club members could vote on as an upgrade doll option. She looks great and the coral with aqua is a lovely combo on her. I am resisting though. I don't like this sculpt all that much. These shoes are snoozy too and look like old school Gene ribbon heels. I imagine she will be a sell out because we have not seen a Jordan FR doll in quite a while.

When the plan took shape for representatives of W Cosmetics to attend the ETSA conference that was taking place in the South of France this year, it didn't take much convincing for Vanessa to to jump on board. For weeks now, she had been hearing about changes that were coming and she wanted to be there to find out about everything before everyone else. Vanessa was definitely a Perrin, always right at the center of the action!
 
This stunning Vanessa Perrin doll is a fully articulated doll with rooted hair. Dressed to accompany Adèle Makéda and her cousin Eugenia on a trip to the French Riviera, Vanessa wears an ultra-modern look, composed of an intricately detailed blouse with long criss-cross ties on the sleeves and a sheer black lace skirt. Since it can get chilly at night, she took along her favorite faux-fur shoulder wrap, which incidentally happens to be one of her favorite fashion pieces! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Um...collectors have been calling this one "Dressed in the Dark" Vanessa. I think the pieces are interesting but the styling is indeed a bit eccentric. I think it is the skirt that throws it for me. Maybe a pencil or even a hobble skirt? Those shoes and purse are amazeballs though and I do indeed plan to find this fashion loose later on. The doll looks more like Erin than Vanessa to me.

When the girls arrived in the South of France, they were delighted to run across Elyse Jolie, who, unbeknownst to them, had been on vacation under the sun for quite sometime already! Sporting a luscious new "bronzé" look, this leading lady of Fashion Royalty shines like a star! 
 
This absolutely gorgeous, fully articulated Elyse Jolie close-up doll measures 12.5" tall and features fully rooted hair. Seen here for the first time in the Light Honey skin tone, this wonderful addition to the Fashion Royalty collection marks the debut of the new interchangeable lower leg feature and includes two sets of lower legs, one with the traditional high-heeled feet and another with flat, removable feet, as well as corresponding shoes to fit each. Elyse also comes with her own faux-leather beach bag, jewelry and glamorous wide-frame sunglasses. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Yet again another reason my three memberships are a good thing! Here is hoping it helps me win this gal. I love the Elyse sculpt and she sure does look good in the darker tone. I am also excited about the flat feet. I am surprise they could not at least give her a sarong or beach kimono. I plan to make some to go with this great swimsuit though.  I think people are going to lose their mind about getting this one. Prepare for blood shed. Once again, I think they could have easily pushed this to an edition of 1000. She is really unique.

When W Cosmetics owner Véronique Perrin opted to put her close friend Adèle in charge of the W Cosmetics delegation at the annual European Trendsetters' Association (ETSA) meeting in the South of France, she knew she had made the right decision. Who better to represent one of the key players of the beauty industry than one of the top trendsetters on the planet for 5 years running (according to Pop Magazine)? Little did any of them know that their presence there would plant the seed for a major switch in their world, the world of Fashion Royalty!
 
Adèle Makéda was born to play the role of W Cosmetics' official representative. Fully articulated and standing at 12.5" tall, this sensational version of one of FR's founding characters features fully rooted hair. For her trek down to the South of France, Adèle opted for an impeccably tailored, red-hot pant suit that features a sophisticated removable cape that transforms the jacket into a vest and allows her to wear this look in multiple ways. She then added a custom-printed head scarf (to protect her finger wave hairstyle), faux-leather gloves and a fashionable hat to complete her look. This lady definitely knows how to travel in style! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Yeah this one is pretty amazing. The whole package is pretty perfect. If I had not landed the Glamazon Adele from the last convention, then I would definitely have tried for this one. Really stunning.

Agnes Von Weiss™ Dressed Doll

Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US
Head Sculpt: Agnes Von Weiss
Body: FR 6.0

Available from IT Direct as a Club Event Exclusive Doll
 
When Agnes arrived at the annual meeting of the design houses to discuss trends and fashion directions for the upcoming season, she had ideas of her own. She made an entrance and her new look immediately sent a message to everyone present that her look was the "IT" look everyone should go for!
 
Agnes Von Weiss is a 12.5" fully articulated fashion doll with fully rooted hair, combed into a short, sophisticated style. In this look, she channels a world famous American designer (one of her idols) in a high-contrast, ultra-dramatic ensemble composed of a show-stopping sateen blouse with romantic puff sleeves and a v-neck mandarin collar, coupled with a high-waisted, very sheer, black guipure lace mermaid skirt lined with delicate dotted tulle. Since Agnes is all about making an impression, of course she has to have the latest fashionable accessories to complete her look and she doesn't skimp here with her exclusively designed leopard clutch purse, closed-toe heels and custom jewelry set! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Evidently Tyler Wentworth was a guest designer here. I do love the sleeves and the short hair on Agnes. She looks very Grace Kelly to me...well....maybe a bitchy Grace Kelly that will cut you.  I am passing though. I don't do evening wear. Also, AGNES AGAIN. Did we really need two Agnes dolls for this collection? The Riviera Drama Agnes fits in nicely with the other gals so it might have been nice to get Kesenia or Isha.

It has been awhile since I have not pre-ordered anything from an FR collection. Hmmm.
