Personally, I'm not a fan of this sculpt and I would rather it were the original Veronique. I'm planning to replace her head.
____Evermore Vanessa FR2 was a surprise to all of us. The real Vanessa sculpt was used for this "Official FR 10th Anniversary Celebration Doll. At first I was sure it was the Fauxnessa sculpt painted to look like Vanessa. There really isn't that much difference between them. She has collectors asking if we will continue to see the real Vanessa used on FR2 dolls in the future. The answer has not been revealed.
I love the FR2 body and she's got killer shoes which, of course, can't be seen under the gown. The necklace is nice. She's got a cool ring. The earrings are ridiculous. Can you imagine a person wearing something like that?
I'm on the fence about the dress. The pattern-maker did not fit the bust properly and there's something off with the gown. The cups are empty because they do not 'hug' her body. The overall picture is of a beautiful doll that is missing a WOW factor. It could be the hair. Imagine if she had hair styled like that of Fine Jewel Eugenia or styled in some other, more feminine, softer style.
I hope the ginormous eyebrows go away soon. They are getting so huge and close together the dolls are liable to have a unibrow soon.
