Doll Nation

Barbie comes to real life, but just, more gorgeously High Fashion…

That pretty much what I thought the past 10 years. Gemma Ward who is, without a doubt, the biggest Australian supermodel ever were a big hit for having a sensational body of work in such a very young age. I was still in the last year of middle school and nobody sold Vogue (even if there were any, I would not be able to afford it) back then in Pontianak, the city where I grew up. I could only see the baby doll-face through some fashion shows on TV every Saturdays after school or on the celeb page.

I went to high school and for some reasons had more access to a bigger fashion world. There were these other girls who were literally everywhere and had the similarity with the Australian sensation: they all look like dolls. Sasha Pivovarova, Caroline Trentini, Jessica Stam, and Lily Donaldson were a group of High Fashion girls with exceptional experiences. They have handful covers of International magazines, walk on the A-List fashion shows in the fashion capitals, and become photographer’s and designer’s muses for the last decade.

At this very moment, years after their debut, their powers are still undeniably strong. Gemma kinda took a long hiatus but even with just a single appearance by opening Prada Spring Summer 2015 in Milan, she took over the fashion world’s attention more than any other girls in the season. Lily still regularly walks on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show and honoured to wear a special outfit made of hundred pieces of Swarovski crystal. Jessica, Caroline, and Sasha still regularly appear on the cover of prestigious magazines including the historical Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary September 2014 Issue.

With such portfolios under their belts; Gemma, Sasha, Caroline, Jessica, and Lily are truly fashion icons. But what is amazing behind is that they remain pals when the curtain is closed. This time’s Women Crush Wednesday will be dedicated to their print work together in various campaigns and editorials these many years. It’s such a shame that there is no work that have all 5 together in a picture. But hey, It-girls come and go but the legends stand still! I believe that we will see that some point as they will absolutely still be around!
