2011 La Bela Notte
I am thrilled to be able to donate this doll to the Italian Doll
Convention's Charity Auction!

"La Bella Notte" harkens back to the sumptuous times of
Haute Couture and high glamour in the 1950s and 1960s.  

Her gown is made of a gorgeous silk brocade in silver and
aqua-- a plunging neckline and full evening skirt with a sash
and exaggerated bow in aqua-colored silk-- accented by a
duo of Swarovski crystal brooches.  Silver colored evening
slippers adorn her
feet.   
Her warm
brunette hair has
been completely
restyled into a
chic
vintage-inspired
design.   Her face
has been fully
repainted with
eyes in shades of
soft sea blue and
shimmering
golden shadow,
contrasting the
soft, warm pink
of her new lip
color.
  
The final touch-- a
statement necklace
of gleaming
Swarovski crystals!  
A shimmering collar
of crystal flourettes
accented with
sea-blue crystals
and tiny beads
encircles her slender
throat.
"La Bella Notte"
comes in a box
signed and dated by
artist...
