Charitybuzz is auctioning this amazing Venetian Muse™ Barbie® Doll prototype that is hand painted and features Swarovski crystals hand sewn on her dress plus additional beadwork around her peplum and gloves.
I didn’t care that much for the Tribal Beauty Barbie doll but this one has to be one of Linda’s finest creations. Good luck if you are bidding. This prototype is a true gem.

The most important party at MFDS 2014 has taken place this evening and the most awaited dolls of the convention were revealed! The convention doll is the beautiful “Fiorella Goes to Madrid” and she has been gently donated by Mattel USA. On her trip to Madrid her lips had changed to a red passion color, she recovered the bag she was sporting at the original Robert Best sketch and she has added to her accessories list a gold and pearl tiara inspired on one of the latest Dolce & Gabbana collections.
Also all the table hosts (I was supposed to e one…) got a stunning Paco Alcaide and Monlew Designs & Creations OOAK doll called “Dolce Vita Golden Goddess”. Do I need to tell you HOW MUCH I like her? Congrats to all the people that got her. She’s a true beauty.

Barbie Ekberg Tribute is the name of these beautiful centerpiece dolls from the gala dinner at MFDS 2014. The dolls are designed by Paco Alcaide and they are wearing dresses hand sewn by Yolanda Cañete. Also they are a homage to one of the most iconic scenes in cinema history: Anita Ekberg inside the Fontana di Trevi in “La Dolce Vita” movie.
All the centerpieces were raffled among the atendees together with several other super gifts. I so envy the people that won them.

It was organized by Zsa Zsa Party, Escuela Goymar, Pino Models Agency, Luis Robles and Ismael Make-Up Hair & Style and the atendees were served with some delicious cocktails specially created for the party by Culture Cocktails, with the help of Freixenet and Schweppes. Damn, I’m so sad I wasn’t there.
One of the special gifts given to all attendees was an outfit designed and handmade by Marcelo Jacob. The name of this outfit is Chess Mess and it’s an homage to the 60’s “groovy

During the night some contests were held and the prize for them was an OOAK doll designed by Marcelo Jacob and Mónica Núñez del Castillo: Barbie Pink! Mod Party Doll. Two variations, Caucasian and Afro American, for a colorful and amazing MOD doll. Dressed in a mini dress featuring a fabulous print with matching belt, colorful stockings, pink earrings and go-go boots: these two dolls became the most desired item of the party. Aren’t they gorgeous! Congrats to the winner. Can’t wait to see IRL images of them.
