The Bergdorf Goodman Jason Wu 10th anniversary dolls sell out just as expected

The next chapter in the saga that is the Jason Wu 10th anniversary doll collection unfolded pretty much like the previous one, with the dolls selling out fast and doll collectors frustrated about getting them. Bergdorf Goodman had two dolls dressed in outfits picked from Jason’s collections, while we still don’t know which retailer will have the last one. Let’s check them out.

Much better than her Net-A-Porter sister, this doll has a gorgeous gown but unfortunately that’s it. No jewellery, no bag, which one would expect in a $225 doll. The shoes have great detail at the heels and the top of the gown is embroidered net with nice detailing even though it’s quite different from the original. I love her make up and hairstyle. The veil did not translate well in doll size though. Easily the best anniversary doll so far.

And the real life gown? Jason Wu Fall Winter 2011 Prêt À Porter.. This collection was his "baroque meets sportswear" one, a line inspired by a Robert Polidori book on the 25-year restoration of Versailles. Bergdorf Goodman Luchia's look came from this collection. Diane Kruger wore this gown at the Met Gala of 2011.

I’m not crazy about this outfit. Wide pants do not look good on dolls with this kind of fabric and the turban looks awful. No jewellery again but there’s a bag at least. Nice shoes with lovely detail. No close up of the doll but she’s nice and I love the short sleek hairstyle. She would look great in a tuxedo.

There’s a small paragraph about Jason at each doll listing
