Their very own Barbie of course! There is a line of Barbie's called Barbie Basics and the dolls look like real girls, well they still have a Barbie figure but all the dolls have different complexions and hairstyles. I gave my good friend Rebecca Spera one for Christmas. I even recovered the box and dressed the doll up to look like her, using clothes from other Barbie's. See her doll below and let me know if you are inspired to give a Barbie Basic's doll to a friend or even get one for yourself.
Last Monday, I attended the premiere of the new E! reality documentary series "Scouted" which stars the Page Parkes of Page Parkes Management, the agency I have been represented by for years. The series documents the discovery and success of up and coming models. I totally recommend that anyone interested in the modeling world watch this show because after seeing what these girls have to go through... I am glad I am an actress! "Scouted" comes on the E! network, Mondays at 9.

Okay, so I had to come up with an outfit for the premiere like super quick! I had a simple purple, short sleeve dress picked out and then (crazy Houston weather) the temperture dropped to 40 degrees. So improvised and threw on a thick knit sweater with pearl embellishment over my little purple dress.
Did you know that leopard print is a neutral (at least that is what I say)? Leopard print has every basic color- black, brown, and camel. So the next time you can't decide what to wear with your little black dress try a cute leopard print clutch or a pair of leopard heels. The key to this tip is to NOT wear more than one leopard accessory at a time. Minimalism is key!
