Available for pre-order exclusively from Tonner Direct, this 16" Antoinette™, Evocative, would be a lovely addition to any collection. She retails for $249.99 and is a limited edition of just 150 dolls.
Evocative features the pale cameo skin tone with green eyes with dark hair (I can't tell from the photos whether it's raven or mink). Her gown is made from red silk shantung, accented with velvet flowers, with lots of shirring, a train and a sexy side slit. Accessories include opera-length gloves, pantyhose, and a coordinating hat made from velveteen petals. She also is wearing matching a bracelet and earrings. Her shoes are to die for--adorable red flocked sling back pumps with bows. An interesting note--the dress and gloves are lined in a neutral fabric to prevent staining.
To pre-order, you have to call Tonner Direct. I think I saw that she's scheduled to ship in the fall (on the back of the most recent Doll Reader magazine). I think she's lovely--if a little pricey.
