Herve Leger Barbie Deboxed

I could not resist deboxing the Herve Leger Barbie Doll set.
First I took out the black and white dress and this Misaki doll who had previously been switched to a NuFace body got to try it on. The boots belong to another doll as do the earrings.
Perfect!




The dresses are made extremely well. I haven't removed the red dress or the harness belt from the Barbie doll but I could see the quality of construction. The harness has a zipper! That was quite unexpected considering that Mattel uses Velcro so often.


I wish this doll was articulated. It's ridiculous to have such beautiful fashions on a rigid doll.

  1. She has a beautiful face and I love the fashions - makes no sense for Mattel to make her
    non-articulated.

  2. Mine arrived today unexpectedly and she is amazing! Been wondering how the dress would look like from the back. Thanks for the insight! Anyhow you should consider re-bodying the doll for more articulation and pose. I bet you have the replacement body in store somewhere. Do take photos of her if you do re-body her.

    1. I'm glad yours arrived! I won't be rebodying the Barbie, however. I will use the fashions on other dolls instead. Thank you for your comments!

  3. Well that's just a thought. I would be very nice to see though. Good to know Barbie fashion is up to standards. Being a doll produced in larger numbers the quality of construction or materials are always questionable. I wish all collector Barbies are made with the same TLC. There was a time when they were all so impeccably made (the reason why I collect mostly past releases). These days they are much less so. I have a partiality for Barbie and tend to look at some of her flaws with one eye closed, but sometimes they are so glaring even I can't ignore it.
