I can't believe I am down to single digits. It is so depressing that I decided to complete my spotlight today on a doll that always makes me smile. In my last blog entry, I wrote about Adele 2.0 and how she is one of my favorite molds. Adele was one of the first two characters introduced by Integrity Toys in 2001-2002. Personally, I prefer her refreshed mold that was in production 2004-2011. Adele is one of two molds that have three versions. The other is Veronique Perrin's sister, Vanessa.
Vanessa Perrin was introduced in 2004 and mold 1.0 is easily my favorite. I remember seeing collector's photos of the next doll after I missed the opportunity of purchasing her and feeling so sad about it. Her secondary market prices skyrocketed and she still demands one of the highest prices in the Fashion Royalty collecting community. You can not imagine my delight in snagging her on E-bay, nude for $120. The seller collected wedding gowns for her Silkstones and didn't want the doll! I finally added Poesie Sans Couleur Vanessa Perrin to my collection.
Mold 1.0: FR 25 releases
Mold 1.0: FR2 1 release
Mold 2.0: FR 3 releases
Mold 3.0: FR 2 releases
Mold 3.0: FR2 2 releases
Of the 26 mold 1.0 releases, I have owned 20 of them and 11 still reside here. I own all three of the mold 2.0 releases, and all four of the mold 3.0 releases. But the one who makes me smile because I nabbed her for $120 on e-bay will always be Poesie Sans Couleur Vanessa Perrin.
