Atropa LE 5

Paul Pham has posted a photo of his latest Numina, Atropa. She is a LE 5 for the Paris Fashion Doll event.



Gretel - No Bread Crumbs

This doll is absolutely one of the prettiest Nu.Face/Nu.Fantasy dolls ever produced. Her screening and hair have all been done exceedingly well.
The boots are a nightmare of elastic threading and I won't even attempt to put them on. The rest of her fashion is lovely. The harness comes off easily. The strap around her neck is a separate piece.
She comes with standard issue pewter color bangles and black rhinestone studs.

My favorites sold very quickly after the collection was posted.

She is as pretty as her promo pictures promised. Beautiful face and lovely hair. This one is a winner!

Red Carpet Fashions at the Oscar Awards 2012

Last night's Oscar Award show was one of the best I've ever seen. The production was practically flawless. The jokes were pretty funny and the fashions were classy and gorgeous. Which were your favorites?

Angelina and Brad - OMG - she is drop dead gorgeous and sexy. Atelier Versace black velvet.
He's adorable.

Glenn Close - fabulously talented but someone needs to force this woman to do something with her hair. It's over-cooked and old-fashioned. The gown, meh. Zac Posen

Emma Stone needed to lose all that extra fabric at the neckline. It wasn't a detail that warranted so much attention. A gorgeous sparkly brooch would have done a much better job. Giambattista Valli Haute Couture

Rooney Mara was very interesting to look at. I liked the hair but I would like to see it in another style so I could compare. The gown she's wearing is beautiful but would benefit from larger breasts. Givenchy couture.

Natalie Portman- Her gown looks ordinary but the diamonds make up for it. Vintage Christian Dior gown.

Penelope Cruz - glamorous and very Hollywood but not up to her usual drop dead gorgeous look. I think it was the hair and pale palette of her make-up.   Giorgio Armani

Gwyneth Paltrow dressed as a Bar Mitzvah mom.  Tom Ford.

Jennifer Lopez - This gown enhances every one of her curves. Although I love Zuhair Murad's work I don't like it on JLo.

Meryl Streep - Is she too busy to get a styling? I don't care if she's not a skinny little thing, she could have been dressed in a more fashionable, flattering, stylish garment.  Lanvin.

Sandra Bullock - The top of this Marchesa gown did not flatter and made her look top heavy. 

Giuliana Rancic - Gorgeous Tony Ward  gown.

Milla Jovovich  - Gorgeous Elie Saab gown. Makeup and hair all work together. She's a knock-out.

Nick Nolte looks ill.

Jane Seymour - WOW! What a gown. I love everything about it except the seam down the front. She's got quite a figure at 61 years old!

Missi Pyle - I'd cut off the droopy strap. Valentina Delfino. Click here for the dress back story.

Octavia Spencer - dressed and accessorized to perfection. Tadashi Shoji.

Michelle Williams - I'm not sure about the gown. There's a lot of stuff going on: multi-layered chiffon fabric, ruching, peplum, train....busy. Louis Vuitton. I love the diamond bow brooch at her waist.
