VOGUE ITALIA July issue show Black Barbies Love!

In July 2008; Vogue Italia made history by paying respect to all Black Models and designers thoughout the fashion industry by having their first all black issue. This year it's all about Barbie; The Black Barbie we should say!



The Cover

I have to say, seeing these photos made me cry a little bit. I truly love being African America and going into stores seeing dolls who have the same skin complexion like me.

Dolls Do It Better: Kim Kardashian Vs. Ayumi N

This week I'm using Reality Star Kim Kardashian and Fashion Royalty London by Night Ayumi N. Kim Kardashian was one of those famous people I could not stand! Why? you make ask yourself! Ms. Kardashian is famous for a real nasty sex tape that she did with Ex and immanture boyfriend Ray J. But over the years, I really stated to like Kim because she was much more than a pretty girl with a black girl booty! I love everything about this photo, very sexy and a little sweet!

Ayumi is looking way hot in this photo. It was kind of hard to get this pose because I forget she was a doll and not an actual human being! However, I'm glad this photo came out so great.

Ayumi is wearing: Nadja Urban Outfitting underwear and black heels. If you can see, I painted the bottom of the shoes red!

Fashion Fever Barbie Commercial

This is an old Fashion Fever Barbie Commerical with Hilary Duff. I really miss those days when Fashion Fever had many different styles and color instead of just being pink!

Kayla modeling in New Fashion Fever

While I was going to school, after class I would stop at my local Target near Brooklyn College. As always I will stop in the Barbie department to see what's new. I will say Mattel has lost some of their fans respect for making crappy clothing and their same face dolls in every ethic group you could imagine. But, I couldn't help myself when I saw some stuff from their new fashion line!

The outfit did come with a lipop but I lost it, so I used these sunglasses that go well with the out. I also changed the shoes because like I said before, Mattel has been making so crappy clothing and thos shoes could not stay on Kayla feet for nothing!

The outfil comes with:

White Jacket, red top, blue jeans, read shoes and a lipop!

DOLLS DO IT BETTER: Ciara VS Rufus Blue


Every Wednesday over the summer, I will be recreated photos from celebrities’ with my dolls using what I have in my collection of clothes. There are so many celebrities’ photos to choose from but, I have made my decision. Some celebrities’ I like and some I just can’t stand at all. However, I love all kinds of photo shoot so I will be using a little bit of everything!
Ciara VS Rufus Blue (Ms. Blue)
This is a scene from R&B star Ciara's music video "Never Ever". One morning I was watching MTV and saw this video, I liked what Ciara was wearing so much I got up and redid this photo!Ciara is wearing a red leather jacket, white sports bra and some faded jeans!

Ms. Blue is wearing a mixture of Fashion Fever! Why did I choose Rufus, it was so time for her to come out of her box and do her run on the CATWALK. I have to say, Ms. Blue did it better than Ciara! Ms.Blue is wearing a 2008 Fashion Fever Short red jacket and 2007 Fashion Fever Short top and pants that came together!

Jason Wu and Colette: Ally of The Dolls

Now that he’s one of American fashion’s wunderkinder, Jason Wu’s early work as a designer of doll fashions is an oft-told part of his lore. But even now that he’s got a pretty enviable set of life-size women clamoring for his clothes, the miniature mode is not a part of his DNA that he’s ready to jettison. His latest fantastic bit of fashion-clad plastic marks the debut of his Fall 2009 collection at Colette in Paris, which hit the store this week. (”The early bird gets the worm,” said Wu. Indeed!) “Sarah [Lerfel] came in to put in an order and saw a doll on my desk, and it just went from there,” explains Wu. “It’s just so perfect for Colette.” For his limited-edition Colette doll, which sells for €215, Wu chose look 20: a belted ivory cashmere coat with a fairylike feather-embroidered hem. “Doing a doll is like drawing a caricature,” Wu explains. “You don’t render all the details, just the most distinctive ones. That’s why it has to be a fun look.” Wu’s dolly days are actually still quite active. He’s doing another for Jeffrey New York, due out this August to celebrate the store’s tenth anniversary. Also in the offing is Wu’s most expensive doll yet—a $1,000 mini-mannequin. “We’re doing it for Japan, but I can’t say more,” he says.
