My favourite Enchanted Doll.

Strong precision, 34 cm of beauty and more than 400 hours of craftwork, with prices starting from
1400 to 7000.
Dubbed by it´s creator Marina Bichkova as "Enchanted Dolls" they actually are; you just have to look at the details; for obvious reasons this pieces are on a higher level, than just for playing. They don’t deserve any less than being on a museum shelf, away from the "little monster´s" hands like Gaga say.
There is an special reason of why did I wanted to share these dolls. To remind you, fashion lovers, to someone I couldn’t stop thinking the first time I saw them, A girl I miss, that is and will always be, one of my all-time favorite models:








Gemma Ward.






Before mentioned her I wanted to put something representative, something that make you guys remember how she was and still is, an enchanted girl from another world.
It would be kind of dumb to say or ask, Gemma where are you? Not on the fashion spot right now, for obvious reasons as you might know, and even the curvy models are back (well…I wouldn’t say back. four, six or seven at Prada and Vuitton, auhhmmm the Sports Illustrated cover  girl Lily Cole at Hermés? and…. Kristen McMenamy at CK counts? Don´t think so, she is just old but still lanky framed; think that, besides Mark Fast I haven´t way seen a brand new cast of rounded faces, just former models, and models that have got some punds but already famous) well, like I was saying, even the curvy models are "back" the title of "curvy" is only deserved for those who got that reputation gaining weight being "active" whether is Lara Stone, or Coco Rocha (May God have mercy on our souls before see them ending up as Victoria´s angels) Others, like Crystal Renn, have always had the label (by the way… she is loosing so much weight, watch your back Sasha!) which makes me think to not be hoped on seeing Gemma on that gang.
It is such a shame to write in Google "Gemma" and before finish writing her name, automatically is displayed the word FAT. Lets be honest, right now, Gemma is healthier than ever, and she looks great and beautiful; Yet, the"beautiful" word doesn´t match with what some designers like Nicolas Ghèsquiere, or Alber Elbaz (I dare to say, we´ll never see a single big tit on their shows) get by. Having said that, sad but true: Health in fashion argot means FAT. In any case, I’m so happy for her.







Summing up: Gema, wherever you are, you will always be a fashion Icon for us, what Penelope Tree was for the sixties, So is Gemma for the aughties.




Curious Note:
Gemma is lined up to play a mermaid on the fourth installment of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. I´ve always knew there was something a little fishy about her.







34 cm de belleza y precisión, más de 400 horas de trabajo, y precios que pueden oscilar entre los 1400 y 7000 euros. Son las "Encanted dolls", creadas por Marina Bichkova que como su nombre lo indica, son unas muñecas encantadoras que van mas allá de su proposito fundamental, el del juego. Solo hay que ver los detalles para saber que están a otro nivel, y es que, no merecen menos que estar expuestas en un Museo  alejadas de esos "pequeños monstruitos"  como diría la Gaga.
Tengo un objetivo muy especial al mostrarles estas muñecas, el de recordarles a ustedes amantes de la moda a alguien la cual no evite dejar de pensar la primera vez que las vi, a una persona que yo extraño y que es y será siempre, una de mis modelos favoritas de todos los tiempos:
Gemma Ward
Antes de hablar de ella quería poner algo representativo que les hiciera recordarla como lo que es, un encanto de otro mundo .
Sería un poco necio preguntar o decir, Gemma ¿dónde estas? Las razones son obvias. Y aunque las curvy models están de vuelta (hombre... por siete en Prada y otras siete en Louis Vuitton tampoco podemos jactarnos de una "nueva generación") creo que eso habrá que dejárselo a quienes se han dado a conocer por ello, esa suerte de ser aceptada después de haber ganado unos kilos, solamente la tienen Lara Stone, o Coco Rocha, (Dios nos guarde la hora en el que aparezcan en un desfile de Victoria´s Secret) y otras ostentan el titulo por siempre haber sido una curvy icon como Crystal Renn (que esta adelgazando tanto que le recomiendo a Sasha que se cuide las espaldas)
Es una vergüenza poner en Google "Gemma" y antes de terminar de escribir, aparezca la palabra "FAT", pero las cosas como son:  la señorita Ward esta màs sana que nunca, es bella tal y como es, aunque para algunos diseñadores como Nicolas Ghèsquiere o Alber Elbaz, la palabra bella no concuerde lo que para ellos el adjetivo significa. Dicho esto, triste pero cierto: en el argot Fashion, la palabra Sano es igual a Gordo.
Gemma, esté donde esté, siempre va a ser un ícono de moda, lo que Penelope Tree fue para los sesenteros, Gemma lo es, para nosotros, los dosmileros.

¡Por cierto! Le han dado el papel de sirena en la cuarta peli de "Los piratas del Caribe" ya decia yo, siempre le vi algo pescaduno a esta mujer.
