A Parisian lady is coming: La Mademoiselle Jolie is the 3rd W Club doll for 2014

In what promises to become a classic Fashion Royalty doll, W CLub announced to its members that the third club doll for this year will be the long awaited Mademoiselle Jolie, mother of Elise (in the ongoing saga of the FR storyline). The only time that this character has appeared before is as a OOAK doll auctioned off in the third Integrity Toys convention back in 2007. Then, as now, the sculpt was none other than the Isha face, the first time it had appeared in Caucasian skin tone. People often wondered if the elusive character would make an appearance again. It seems the time has come.

Mademoiselle Jolie in Ombres Poétique is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl fashion doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. She comes dressed in a fitted tulle evening gown that comes with a matching embroidered clutch purse, shoes and jewellery. The doll also has a black lingerie set. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up


I like the Isha/Luchia 1.0 sculpt and was happy to see the doll, especially as this rare and most wanted character. The doll looks much better than its OOAK original counterpart. She is better styled and dressed, Her hair look amazing and her make up looks good in the photos. The open mouth detail is the one that makes her face so much different than any Isha or Luchia from previous releases. I also like the underwear (Integrity always give their dolls amazing undies) and the accessories are very nice too. I'd like it better if the jewellery included a ring and /or matching bracelets.


The dress reminds me a lot of the one Pale Fire Vanessa was wearing (in form). She also looks like a great candidate to turn into a personalized Karl Lagerfeld doll (since getting the original might be impossible). We'll see. One way or another, she's a keeper. Despite her misspelled name, which in French should be Ombres Poetiques (either both should in plural or singular form, poetic eyes - unlike English, French adjectives follow nouns in their form).
