Poppy and Hoang Anh Khoi

"Hold that Tiger!" Poppy Parker decided to hang her ever-so-mod togs and spend an evening in an elegant style by Vietnamese designer Hoang Anh Khoi.

"Brocade Charm" is a high-necked body suit and flounced skirt design made in red silk brocade. Tiny hand stitches are as captivating as the soft off-white blooms.

To give the look a more contemporary look, Poppy chose to wear thigh-high black patent leather high-heeled boots. Her side-parted short style and subdued make-up allow the fashion to carry the conversation.

L'heure bleue

L'heure bleue

It's that ephemeral sight when day and night are equals. It is also an instance of tension. For it is at twilight when the soul most relishes the arrival of the mysteries of nighttime and mourns the loss of the purity of dawn.

V.Jhon's Nightingale Molly Hayward embodies this shimmering moment in the designer's magical dress and cape ensemble. The pailletes betray the secret withheld by the clear blue sky:  it will soon be dark and stars will puncture nighttime's net of blackness.

L'heure bleue is an eternal instant of beauty.

Cherish the Day

It's a new day for Barbie. A colorful and shiny kind of day. Fashionistas number 90, aptly named "Rainbow Bright" arrives just in time for summer -wearing a soon-to-be classic T-shirt dress with horizontal bands of saturated hues - all the colors of the whole-light spectrum, a welcome metaphor for diversity and inclusiveness, ideals that although constant components of Barbie's world's, have reached their apex with the Fashionistas line.

"Rainbow Bright - Fashionistas #90 - is, consequently, causing quite the stir among collectors, not only for the fashion but also because of the beauty of the model. Utilizing the same sculpt as "Patchwork Denim" and "Rosey Romper", "Rainbow Bright" debuts a dark and beautiful skin hue that reminds collectors of some latter versions of Malibu Christie, Nichelle Model of the Moment, and Princess of Africa dolls. But since this is a new day for Barbie, "Rainbow Bright" breaks ground as the first Fashionistas offering to bring yet another definition of beauty to playtime and children (and yes, collectors) the world over.

In this exclusive Dolldom feature, "Rainbow Bright" poses in a selection of dresses from the current Fashionistas line.
