Unfortunately these dolls do not have the pivotal torsos or knees that allow the Fashionistas to pose so expressively. Their range of motion is the same as the Kenya dolls, but Kenya feels a little lighter and more brittle.
Trichelle is not available in this wave of SIS dolls. Marissa didn't want her to feel left out so she let her model this Baby Phat fashion.
I am not fond of this melon pink, probably because it is a color I can't wear however I love the purple print leggings.
The Baby Phat logo necklace is a fun accessory
and the purple shoes are scrumptious.
When I lived in New Orleans, I used to tutor the little girls who lived next door. One day when we were drawing self portraits, the middle girl who was about twelve used the brown marker to color her face and then exclaimed "oh no! that's too dark!" Then she took the yellow marker to give herself blonde hair. I always felt that Kara had the same kind of complex about her complexion. At least she has found a better colorist this time.
Now if we could just get her to ditch the pink lipstick...
Fortunately this Kenya Fashion madness dress compliments Kara's complexion well and her feet are small enough to squeeze into Kenya's shoes.
Each of the Baby Phat SIS dolls comes with a pair of stylish sunglasses.
The face screens on some of these dolls seems a little askew but I'm sure Chynadoll can work wonders with them.
Kenya loves Kara's Baby Phat shorts and sweater.
The sweater fits well even though Kenya is a bit better endowed than the SIS dolls.
The tube top and shorts are sewn together as a one piece romper that fastens in the back with a strip of velcro.
While Kenya is searching for her contact lens we can admire her... Baby Phat shoes!
Kenya and the SIS dolls have a very different sense of style but they can wear each others' outfits and add their own personal flair to each one.
For example Grace can rock Rock Star Kenya's jacket and jeans
but she adds her own a note of sophisticated elegance with her Baby Phat sunglasses.
I was never sure what color Grace's eyes were supposed to be before but in this new face screen they are clearly green.
Kenya's hips and thighs are fuller but she can fit comfortably into Grace's slinky black leggings and pink top.
The asymmetrical collar is a very distinctive detail.
Ankle boots complete the ensemble.
The two divas find they can respect each other.
Chandra even invited Kenya to attend her church.
I was disappointed that Chandra's outfit turned out to be a one piece dress. At the very least, I feel the jacket should have been a separate piece but Kenya was so happy Chandra loaned it to her that she stood up and shouted "Hallelujah!"
When it came time for the collection she proudly tipped up to the altar in these snazzy shoes.
Kenya is obviously one of those people who goes to church to be seen.
I was very glad Chandra was also blessed with soft, curly black hair. She accented Riviera Kenya's three piece pink suit with a matching Baby Phat headband.
While I love Chandra the best
all of the new SIS dolls are phat as duckbutter!
