Spotlight: Daria Celebutante

Posted by thedollcafe at Thursday, March 27, 2008
Daria is one of the girls who started it all! One of the three original dolls in the Model of the Moment collection, Daria featured a new face mold, now known as the Daria mold. Her platinum blond hair is styled in an up swept bun with her bangs just slightly over her forehead to the right. Her long drop silver earrings frame her face beautifully. Daria's dress is a powder blue charmeuse with ruffle trim. Her Mary Janes match just perfectly. The black fish nets give Daria a fierce look, somewhat reminiscent of Paris in the 1940s. Her faux fur stole compliments and finishes her look.

Daria was one of the few Model Muse dolls with the very fair skin tone which makes her perfect for rebodying other dolls. Until 2007, she was one of the few fair skinned Model Muse Barbies. Known body matches include Golden Angel Barbie, Princess of Greece Barbie, Kate Spade Barbie, Hollywood Divine Barbie, Pink Ribbon Barbie, Paul Frank Barbie, Society Girl, Fashion Fever Wave T Lea, and Martina McBride Barbie.

Daria has a beautiful face and her facial screening really brings out her eyes. Some collectors may recall that prototype pictures of Daria featured Daria with the Lara/Drew face mold. Although Daria was produced with her platinum blond hair, she also looks very beautiful as a brunette. Her fair skin tone looks great and her eyes are even more vivid when paired with brunette hair. One of my Darias will soon be re-rooted as a brunette.

Overall, this is one of the more versatile Model Muse dolls you can own. Whether you keep her as is, restyle, or re-root her, you will not be disappointed. Currently she can be purchased at Ebay and you can still find her at reasonable prices.
