After reviewing the silent auction, it was time for luncheon with Barbie.  Since the festival was centered around the theme “Cocktails in Paris” attendees were encouraged to bring their hats.  There were some really inventive and creative ones.

At the tables were some really fabulous doll.  This blue rendition of the festival Sybarite has my heart a twitter.  I believe this was a salon edition of only 5 for this festival.  Lucky ducks!

Here is Rogier’s Sybarite from yesterday dressed in the festival exclusive outfit called “Balencirara”.  There were three color variations…black ( here), red (pictured below) and a red and green version.  If you click on the blue link, it will take you to the Flickr page with a picture of that version(thank you for sharing this Janina!!).
