Okay, but here is my issue: The Silkstones are part of the "Fashion Model Collection" which means they should be fashionable, right? With the exception of the brunette in red, I can't imagine any of them strutting a runway! The one with the babushka on her head is almost comical! I'm sorry, but when I think high fashion, Russian folk dress just doesn't come to mind.
They are extremely detailed, far more than the usual Silkstones. They are just so authentic that I suppose to some they are more like 'dolls of the world'. The Japanese doll of the world for 2011 has similar styling of traditional dress. BTW I think she is gorgeous!
