It’s not just us, right? Fashion dolls are popping up everywhere. (Click here for a mere sampling.) The latest set are from Jason Wu by way of New York–based dollmaker Madame Alexander. Wu comes by this collaboration honestly–he was named creative director of Integrity Toys while he was still a teenager and still oversees the company’s high-end doll lines.
The six dolls, which will be available on madamealexander.com in August, are for two different lines–the company’s Cissy collection and their new NeoCissy line. The colour play and looks are familiar Wu territory–a light, one-shoulder polka dot number is not far off a frock in his spring collection–but the real fun is in the details. A lace mask and a feathered eye that are straight from Lady Gaga’s playbook, a glove chapeau, tiny hosiery, a feathered straw hat and a mean pair of strappy green platforms. The dolls in the Cissy line, Envy, Lust and Vice, also have some killer eye makeup.

And then again I thought for myself perhaps not we will skip this part for now! :) Freaky, aren't they!
