World Beauty by RDGDOLL
The models of Keith Kwek's Rêves d'un Garçon celebrate the beauty of women the world over. Soo, Liya, Ujjwala, Coco, and Kya celebrate multi ethnic beauty. Growing up in the multi-cultural country of Singapore, Mr. Kwek failed to find an abundance of the same in the doll world. So when he had plans to re-launch RDGDOLL in 2014, Mr. Kwek wanted three faces that would represent the major ethnicities of the world. Coco, Kya and Soo, like their predecessors, stayed true with the brand's philosophy in its appreciation of beauty from diverse ethnicities. The newest faces boast very distinctive ethnic features. But that said, these sculpts transcend their intended ethnicity with their reincarnation in different skin tones. For example, Soo as Ujjwala looks like a gorgeous South Indian, and Coco as Liya looks like an exquisite Ethopian.
Ujjwala wears Tommy Doll's marvelous interpretation of YSL's LBD for Luis Buñuel's Belle de jour. Wig by Time of Doll.
Liya is all sobered up in Tyler Wentworth's Boutique skirt and an organza blouse by JAMIEShow. Necklace by Joy Jarred. Wig by Time of Doll.
Soo is elegant in Tommy Doll's luxurious silk ensemble. Wig by Chewin.
Ujjwala goes vintage in Tonner Doll'd tribute to Le Théâtre de la Mode. Wig by Chewin.
