 The Critics: I’m sure there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that Colette was going to be a winner…the absolutely “spot-on period” feel, the bee-sting lips and bedroom eyes.
The lovely fringed and bejewelled cape, the clever effect of chevroning the front of the dress, which carried the eyes down - past the l-o-n-g fringe to those exquisite shoes.
Was she wearing gloves Sandy? I ask since the face fabric seems peachier than the armss, but the cape hides her hands. I also couldn’t tell if she was a pancake face doll or if she had a chin…do tell!
Lovely Marcel-waved hair as well (I can remember my Mum with hair like that!!) The ostrich feather collar also adds to the overall look.
Would have been nice to have seen a real close-up of her face in the little insert at the bottom right of the photo…
Congratulations on your win of Best Embellishment – it was well deserved!!
