Gwen is a very pretty doll. Her hair is soft and long- just the right length to do styles with. It's just about the same length as JLY#25's only not as thick. Gwen has light layering, but it does not get in the way of styling. Her bangs stay in place. The are a little fluffy at first.
Her eyes are pretty and dark brown. They are very dreamy. Her face reminds me of Samantha's. Her face coloring is natural and nice. Overall, I love my Gwen. She fit into the "doll family" right away. If I had to pick only one of the three 2009 LEs it would be her.
Her dress is complete win! It is one of the things that sold me on her. It is an eyelet lace sundress with pretty floral embroidery. I had a hard time getting her pink headband on right, so I tried it as a belt. I thought it was a weird way to wear it in the catalogue, but I have to admit, I prefer the dress with the headband belt.
That said, the headband is nice but I can't get it on her head without messing up her bangs. It's not very stretchy. It matches the dress so well though. The white hairtie is just a regular terry hair tie.
Her underwear are light pink with a cute design, and do not show through her dress. Her dress is lined, by the way. That's probably why.
Gwen's sandals are similar to Jess. I think Jess's are a little better though, because the plastic strap on Gwens' are a bit too loose. I like the color of Gwen's sandals though. They look cute on her.
Overall: A+! Gwen herself and her outfit make the grade as high as possible.
Book: I skimmed through it and it looks helpful for kids.
