Blythe

I’m fascinated with dolls and have been a collector since I was a child and now, as a makeup artist, they’re a great source of inspiration for me especially when they’re like Blythe.  She was a doll originally created in the 70’s and discontinued after only one year but, thanks to photographer Gina Garan, she’s been resurrected and now has a very big and very fashionable fan club.   I bought this book, “Blythe Style”, in Japan when I was working there on location and never tire of looking at it.  The images inside are wondeful collaborations between Ms. Garan and several designers and could easily rival the editorial layouts of any top magazine.  As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the colorful and magical world of Blythe Theater.  It seems no matter what setting or situation Blythe is in, she always has the right outfit, hair and makeup- she’s just fabulous!
