Jason Wu at Bergdorf Goodman

This morning 2 dolls went for sale at the Bergdorf and Goodman website. These dolls are part of a collection designed to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Jason Wu as a Fashion Designer.

With this kind of releases you never know how it goes. Especially with limited edition sizes like 200. But many of us were prepared. There were a few tiny “problems” like the dolls didn’t show up when you search for them by using the searching function on the website. You had to go to the designer alphabet and then select Jason Wu. They didn’t put them all on the site at once. So at one point they were sold out and orders got canceled and then 10 minutes later they were available again. And some collectors had problems with shipping adreses out off the US and Canada.

But these kind of things always happens.

So here are the ladies, both Elise Jolie.

There was a day look that I loved. Inspired by a look from Jason Wu’s Spring Summer 2011 collection.

I love her pants and the cool shoes.

The doll is exactly styled as the model who showed this look at the catwalk.

And there was this amazing evening look from the Fall Winter 2011 collection.

And wow I love her face so much.

And also this doll was styled exactly as the model on the catwalk.

There still 2 looks in this collection that has to come out. So the collecting stress is not over yet ūüėČ

And how cool is this mask !!!! For me this doll is everything. The pompadour style, Pink, The amazing beaded fabric. Her powdery face and that cute hart shaped beauty spot. I have to admit that I got a preview from this beauty a few months ago. Superdoll asked me to create a miniature for this event. And I was so honored that they asked me for this. So at this event everybody got a miniature with this lady inside
