I was browsing on the Barbie Collector website today (as one does, when trying to avoid real work) and found a terrific collection of Grace Kelly dolls. What I love about these is that they recreate some of her wonderful outfits from the classic Hitchock films To Catch a Thief and Rear Window. It might not be possible to wear the delicious Edith Head designed black and white gown ourselves, but it sure would be nice to look at every day. I was less impressed with the bridal Grace Kelly – the dress is so famous now that it is really clear they have got the skirt and veil very wrong.
On the Hitchcock theme, I also discovered a Tippi Hedren doll from The Birds. Being pecked to death has never been so chic!
