Haute Finds: What a Doll

Back in the day, when it came to paper dolls, we were more Holly Hobby than Halston Hats. So while we were otherwise occupied fashioning ourselves, it appears paper dolls were busy doing some growing up of their own.

Thanks to Donald Hendricks, a fashion and beauty illustrator whose work has appeared in Vogue, Bazaar, Cosmo, we've been wasting tons of time e-dressing up the likes of Jackie O., Joan Crawford, Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Hedy Lamarr, Pia Douwes, and even Hillary Clinton in designer duds by Armani, Dior, and Versace to name a few. The site features tons of different eras and juxtaposes fictional characters (Jane Austen's Emma, Little Women's Beth, Jo, Amy & Meg) and their real life counterparts with aplomb.

Actual paper dolls can be purchased online or you can just click and play to your heart's content.
