I'm introducing the 1990 version of the Dolls of the World series Parisian Barbie, the reproduction of the 1979 Vintage First Issue Parisian Barbie Doll. This doll still has the same outfit and Steffie face, but her facial screening is brighter, including red lips. She has a Superstar body.

Check out Flickr to see more photos, including close-ups, of this cheerful girl.

Buyer beware: While Amazon has some fantastic deals, just be careful when you buy from private sellers. If a doll is listed "Like New," this does not always mean that she is
  • still in the box
  • from a smoke-free home,
  • is anywhere close to mint condition. 
Just my own experience. And you kind of have to ask first, rather than assume those things.

On that note, my doll has been cleaned thoroughly, her hair has been restyled and rinsed, and I had to throw out her original mesh hose. They've been replaced with Azone hose. Her polyester dress has also been cleaned. After the entire doll was de-smoked, using the baking soda trick, she's smelling pretty nice now.
