Dolls. An iconic childhood toy. You can dress them, accessorize them, cut off all their hair with a pair of Fiskars until they look just like I Made Bad Life Choices Barbie, then wake up in the middle of the night to find them staring at you ominously by the light of the moon. Great fun, really.
Vogue Paris has married nostalgia with modern fashion in a photo series of models posed as luxury fashion dolls—in their store packaging. Stunning and creepy. Simultaneously beautiful and the stuff of nightmares.
Each brand is represented thoughtfully—the luxury Italian label Moschino with all pink and poodle hair; Louis Vuitton, which will put an LV logo on anything; the Valentino doll is Zooey Deschanel's life in a box; Ralph Lauren looks like a gilded flight attendant; Saint Laurent, IDK, there are roller skates and a guitar; and the ultra-feminine Chanel, I can smell the No. 5 from here.
Check them out in the current Vogue Paris edition, but if you're not a subscriber (quelle horreur!), you can see them here.
