Steffie of the day: Matthew Sutton

50th Anniversary Gala Tribute Barbie, Steffie sculpt
A recent arrival to my Steffie collection, thanks to Kathie, is this lovely Steffie-faced doll designed by Matthew Sutton. She's is one half of the 2009 both Anniversary Tribute Barbie gift set, which you can see here.

Her body is actually similar to a Silkstone body with posed legs and arms and heavy vinyl feel. I love her simple and classic face paint--no eyelashes and very basic. The screening is lovely and dramatic, without being too harsh. Her hair is the perfect mix of blonde and platinum, pulled back in an undo of curls, and secured with a black satin ribbon.

Her removable strapless cocktail gown has a bubble skirt, and crafted in lace over satin. The oversized bow has a lovely rhinestone pin on the front for detail. Simple black sling backs and gloves finish her look.

I highly recommend Kathie--she can find anything doll- or Barbie-related for you, and if you're patient, at just the price you want to pay. She's awesome!
