The items fit the doll well, all the girls I know love the set, but I thought the pink of the shirt and the pink trim (cuff) of the pants were noticably off. Maybe mine was just a bad dye lot. I was disapointed in that. Easy on and off, and they fit nice, not gapping.

This photo was taken to show that the Japanese eraser ice cream is too small for AGs, but Marisol happens to be wearing the Fashion Show '09 outfit! (Thanks to mstangledweb for picking up the outfit for me as we were out of town that weekend!)
I recently purchased the fashion show exclusive capri outfit, the accessories set (Goody bag and bracelet to match the ones the girls attending the show get as well as a pair of pink sneakers) and the doll size pink mini tote with the fashion show logo. Though there is a slight colour difference between the hem of the capris and the shirt I probably wouldn't have even noticed it if I hadn't read reviews here already and it certainly doesn't bother me. (After all, the shoes are a slightly different pink as well but since they are all bright pink they coordinate nicely.)
Please note that each fashion show seems to set its own prices for the souvenirs. I paid $12 for the capri outfit (I've seen them for $15 as well), $7 for the doll tote (they also sold a girls version for $25) and $10 for the accessories set. (There was a hair accessories set available with fringe-y pony holders and pink and red claw clips as well for $8.)
First, the outfit...
This is fitted and I wouldn't even think of trying to fit a PM girl into it! The knit fabric on the pants is a nice weight but you have to readjust after the dolls have been sitting or it rides up a bit. The doll shirt is a match to the girls shirts they sell at the fashion shows so my daughter was thrilled to have another matching doll/girl outfit.
The doll accessories...
I like the low cut of the sneakers and the pink will go with a lot of the other AG outfits (much to some collector's chagrin). The doll bracelet is, again, a match to the one the girls who attend the fashion shows get in their goody bags and is cleverly made, loosening and tightening with a pull on the end of the strings. (It only fits on the doll's left hand, though, being just a tad too small for the right.) The paper goody bag itself is an exact match for the girl's and looks cute with the t-shirt since it has the peach stars on it as well.
The doll tote...
I love these little totes and this pink one is no exception. It, too, has the peach shooting star motif to match the t-shirt.
Here is Rose modeling all the fashion show goodies!
We picked up this set for $22 - pants, top, shoes, bracelet, paper goody bag, and doll tote. I believed they reduced the price since we were at the last AG Fashion Show for the weekend. We didn't have plans to buy this set but for the price, we thought it was worth it. My DD had Ruthie in it and it looked really cute on her. The shirt seems a little tight though and the shoes may be hard for some kids to put on but otherwise a great, simple outfit. Lots of mix and match potential.
