New Asian Female Fashionista?

While on Facebook I saw a tip from fellow collector TS that shows Cool Toy Review 2012 discoveries. One of the Fashionista dolls looks Asian. The black-haired one with a red gold dress and who is standing next to Nikki. What do you think?

She really does look asian! Yay for mattel for expanding their horizons in the playline dolls a little more :)

Hi Verona, Vanessa, and BDE:

Nice indeed. Although as I continued to stare at that new Fashionista, I wonder if she has the same face sculpt as Raquelle? Only in a more olive complexion and with eyes slightly tilted? Hmmm ...

She reminds me of the Polynesian sculpt from back in the day that was used on the doll named Kira(sp?).

Hi DollsonTop and nebdar1966! Yes, the new beauty does have a lovely complexion. And she does resemble the face sculpt that was used on Dolls of the World Eskimo Barbie (1st one) and Kira, but the doll seems to have a more delicate face.

I really hope so. I have a co-worker is is Asian and her daughters think there is a Barbie that looks like them. She would be perfect xmas gifts. This year.

She does to me! The new Raquelle dolls are ambiguous

D7ana said...

Hi Brini and Cyano!

True, Brini, the proof will be in the actual doll - how Asian she will look.

And yes, Cyano, the new Raquelle dolls could be Asian or White. The subtlety of Mattel ....
