Madame Alexander Afro-American Couture Dolls

A little while ago I toured the Madame Alexander doll factory. If I can ever organize the tons of photos I took while on the tour I'll share about the tour in an upcoming blog post. For now I want to share a little about some of the African-American Couture dolls in the Madame Alexander collection. Those dolls are serious fashionistas

Alex Signature Collection Styled by Jason Wu 'Graphic Content Paris' Price: $149.95

16” Graphic Content Paris has dark, olive green eyes and waist-length black hair worn under a black eyelet hat that accentuates the seductive shimmer of her make-up and looks smashing with her flirty black dress. The sleeveless, full-skirted dress of twisted tulle is enhanced by a fuchsia satin bodice overlaid with a sheer, black velvet windowpane fabric that is threaded with silver. A fuchsia satin sash at the waist, black lace panties, pink pearl and gold stud earrings, a black clutch with an over-sized bow and flocked turquoise, ‘wrapped to the ankles’ stilettos with a bow at the heel, add the last bits of panache to Graphic Content Paris’ enticing look.

Strut Price: $169.95

16-inch fully-articulated Strut, an African American Neo Cissy with brown eyes and a new wave, side-parted fuchsia bob, wears a strapless, boned, cage dress. The dress, of metallic gold organza, is accented by white leather ribbon. Skin tone, thigh-high stockings and stretch panties, gold and fuchsia strappy platforms with glitter heels, and a wired gold organza hat complete a look that has her Strutting down a runway. Preorder now. Expected to ship September 2011.

A Beautiful Nightmare Price: $299.95

21 inch, fully articulated A Beautiful Nightmare is an African-American Cissy with dark blue eyes, an abundance of curls and dramatic make-up. She is dressed in a black gown that is lined in gold and magenta, and has an Asian floral brocade bodice, a long red sleeve on the left side, and a short puffed sleeve on the right. Chevrons of the embroidered brocade are at the waist and red leggings are worn beneath the open skirt. A Beautiful Nightmare’s Celtic style jewelry includes a silver cross with an amber center left earring and a ruby encrusted, silver dangle on the right. A silver, ruby and rhinestone pendant is at the waist, a matching necklace at the neck and a silver and ruby bracelet is on her wrist. Gold snakeskin, platform heels and deep purple wings at her back complete her look. WEB EXCLUSIVE - Not available in stores

Alex Signature Collection Styled by Jason Wu 'GoingPlatinum Paris' Price: $149.95

Jason Wu designed an inspired combination of skin tone and fabric to create an unforgettable modern classic look on this special doll with 17 points of fluid articulation. The regal, 16 inch, newly-sculpted African-American Alex has a rich skin tone, soft brown eyes with attached lashes and frosted eyeshadow, and waist-length silky-straight black hair. A creamy white tulip long skirt is matched with sleeveless high-neck bodice and hook-and-eye closures up the back, a black satin belt, also with hook-and-eye rhinestone closure at back. Framing Alex's face is a dramatic ruffle of white pleated crepe, black pleated netting, and black organza bow. On her feet she wears open-side black crepe pumps with black platform sole and heel, metallic gold-braid ankle straps, and gold leather binding at center back of heel. Accessories include white pearl drop earrings with metallic gold studs, two metallic gold chain and white pearl bead bracelets, and a dramatic clutch with applied fuchsia fabric flower petals.
