This dressy number is ablaze with metallic sparkles in a kaleidoscope of colors. Its daring off-shoulder top with revealing portrait neckline, full skirt and glittering rhinestone accents takes you from movie date to movie star.
Since Cedrick's was the IT place for the IT girls of Hollywood to get their fashions, it makes sense that much of their marketing was to wanna-be starlets and this is a perfect example. This was very early on in Fabiola's career and probably dates to about 1955.
This doll comes fully dressed in a beautiful off-shoulder dress with full gathered skirt and with rhinestone detailing near waist. Her accessories include rhinestone necklace with drop stone, iridescent rhinestone bracelet, rhinestone drop earrings, black spiked heels, lilac gloves and a long slim embroidered clutch lined in hot pink. She wears a velvet headband in her hair. Dress by Tania Lawrence and accessories by Mr. B.
