Wow! Addys nose looks different! And of course her skin.... It's more on the golden side like Cecile.... And I'm soooo glad they have a few things from the old line! I wonder though how long that'll last until they phase out Kits Desk for example... Thank You Cindy & Rhonda! Great update.
Thank you. I heard that those in store said Addy's skin is more Reddish toned.
Thank you so much for these pictures! It's real-life pictures like these that prove even the items that look crazy-shiny on the website (Sam's Frilly Frock, Caroline's Party Dress)...honestly don't look as flashy in real life. Yes, they're both still fairly shiny, but in my opinion, not glaringly so or in a cheap manner.Moral of the story? Never trust AG stock photos. Whoever does them needs to go back to their photography class stat.
I agree. Rebecca's new holiday dress looks pretty tacky online but in the store pictures, it looks really lovely. The pink and purple dress also isn't as heinous in these pictures.Another blog had an Addy comparison and there wasn't much of a difference between the skin tones--maybe the difference was PC or Mattel Addy vs Beforever Addy. I know my PC Addy (with soft eyelashes) has sort of a purple undertone--she doesn't quite match my other dark skinned dolls who are all newer. At least her hair is still textured so one crisis averted. And the new eyebrows look great.
I never saw much of a difference between them either :) people were talking as if Addy was very noticeably being lightened up, but I always suspected it was just AG warming up her skin a little bit. And really, I see even less of a difference than that. I think the new Addy is beyond gorgeous and I'm actually very interested in having her now.Also, Kit's dress does have kind of a teal color but it's also not so bright IRL, and may look a little more true to the 30s then for those who were concerned about its brightness being accurate. Plus, her belt is made of red eyelet fabric. I thought it was just plain, solid red fabric.
Thank you for sharing the photos from the different events. Things look much different from the catalog and online pictures. A lot of poeple are complaining about the new Jip, but if Jip is a cocker spanial the new design is much more accurate.
