GT 16 has beautiful dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her coloring is the same as Mattel Samantha's. Her hair is shorter than Samantha's and layered. Her hair is almost identical to Susanna (Goetz Little Sisters) but a little longer layers. Her hair is fun to style and she looks cute in modern and historical clothes and also casual and dressy. Basically, she looks cute in anything.
One of my friends has her. I'm pretty sure she got her around 2007. She's a pretty doll, with cute hair and nice brown eyes. But, every time I look at her I think Samantha even though #16's hair isn't curly. She's a nice doll, but not one of my favorites. Grade: A.
I owned #16 for a few years. She was nearly identical to my Sam. I have pictures of them taken at the same time:
Can you guess which one is 16? It took a lot of squinting for me to figure it out.. Sam is holding her doll. 16 is wearing Sam's christmas dress and holding a teddy. I called 16 Claira. My suggestion is, if you want the looks of Sam without the price tag. Go for a 16.

Though #16 was not one of the ones retired during the 2012 outfit change, I ordered one shortly before the meet change (mostly for her meet outfit, IU code, and box). I intended to switch the new doll out with my previous revised-banged doll anyways, but was expecting another revised doll. Instead I got one of the retired #16 dolls.
I had never seen a pie-banged #16 before, so I was interested and not unhappy that I was sent this one.
Pictures (I thought I had one of her in the box, but I guess I forgot to take one):
My doll on left and new doll on right in her meet.
Differences in bangs - my doll on right this time and new doll in her new clothes
Seeing as how they clearly have old stock of #16 I am kind of surprised they didn't retire her, but I am delighted as she is my favorite doll.
I will not be keeping this doll, but it was great to see a pie-banged version.
