I took these photos of #55 at AGB&B-DC the first day it was open and she was introduced.
She has the classic face mold, brown wavy hair and very green hazel eyes. Her wig is very similar to #24's in texture. #55's hair is a dark brown, but not nearly as dark as #41 or #49. She's very realistic looking.
My DD bought #55 at the DC store. She was intending to get Rebecca but this doll stole her heart. This is one stunning doll. She is just so striking in person. She has a fantastic, long, thick wig and lovely eyes and hair color. My DD rates her an A+. She looks really cute with earrings and overall highly recommend.
My daughter's dolls (in storage): Kanani, Natalie (#55), and Rebecca
My dolls: Kit, Lanie, Felicity (PM), Kaya, Addy (PM), and Josefina (PM)

I got her at the DC store at the Soft Opening on Wed!!! She is so lovely!!!!! She looks just like me!!!! I love her creamy brown hair (same shade as mine right down to the redish blond highlights) and the hazel eyes look almost green in some lights.. but browner in others..
Here is Bella (55) with my rewigged PM Lissy, and Alice (39)
She is wearing the new school outfit with arm warmers, and new rasberry frames
I tried her in all most the frames I got. Here is the chocolate frames on her
and the tortise shell rectangular frames
her hair is thick and wavy/curly.. So fun to play with!

I first saw this doll online and I thought she looked too similar to #23 which I have so I passed until I saw her at the store. She was absolutely stunning! The contrast of her hair and skin makes her features pop. Her rosy cheeks and coral pink tinge of her lips are very pronounced on this doll. Her hazel eyes "change" depending on the lighting from green, to greyish to hazel. Her freckles make her look more real. Although she has a classic mold like so many of the other dolls #55 looks sweeter and more vulnerable. Her hair is also a striking feature. It is a nice length to play with and has the right amout of curls to add body and texture. To me this doll is "perfect" in every way. I named my doll Brooke and she is exquisite!
I purchased her at the new DC store on June 20. I would definitely recommend her! She is so cute with her freckles and dark hair, and her eyes are a darker shade of hazel - they have more green in them. She is a very lovely doll!

Here are some pics of my new #55, Meadow. She is gorgeous! Her face paint is nice and bright although you can't really tell in the pitures. I love her freckles and I knew I had to have her the instant she came out. Her wig is pretty thick and nice and shiny. She looks good in everything I've put her in so far.
Somone had asked for some comparison pictures of #55 and Ruthie so I figured I would add them here too.
I haven't had a lot of time to take some pictures of her yet, but this is my daughters 55, Arya. We picked her up last week at AGPNY.
DD and I were not expecting to pick up a MyAG. In fact, she went there fully intending to get Marie Grace. But we didn't even make it upstairs before she was side tracked by Arya. I have to be honest, Im completely blown away by how beautiful this girl is. Her coloring is like nothing I've seen before with our other dolls. Even though she is another classic mold (we have 4), she stands out.

Okay, I just had to post again, because I put Hayden in bright pink and it was the PERFECT color for her!
I wanted to share one more thing about her, too. I was worried that her hair would be high maintenance. It does tend to get messed up pretty easily (especially when I'm changing her clothes), but I've been pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to get it back into pristine shape. A little spritz, some finger curling, and she's back to beautiful! I haven't found her hair overwhelming at all, which was really a relief. I think it helps that it's more wavy than completely curly, so it can get away with more of a messy look and still look pretty, if that makes sense.
I have waited for this doll for so long! If only she had brown eyes.... I knew I wanted her the minute I saw her in the catalog. She is what I've been wanting as my book-Elizabeth for Felicity!
But I've also been enjoying Elizabeth (we call her Bee in the 21st century!) as a modern girl. She's sort of become my side-kick lately when she's not hanging out with Felicity. She looks great in both period and modern clothes, and her hair is so great for styles from either period.
I'm impressed with the quality of construction as well. The last couple dolls I got new from AG (2 Rebecca's and Molly) have all had rather floppy limbs right out of the box and some crazy wig issues. #55, however, seems to have tight limbs and beautiful hair. One side seems longer than the other, as someone else mentioned, but with the wave it's not too noticeable.

Well, I made a special trip to the AG Store in Lynnwood, north of Seattle yesterday to pick out a #55. She had even eyes & brows & a sweet expression but when I got home & took off the hairnet I was dismayed to find that about half of her hair on the back, right-hand side was cut very short (about 1/2" long) & that it was subsequently thin & falling out. There were also long, hanging stitching threads in the back. I've got to take her back as soon as I can (next month)! I've read in the feedback here that she usually has nice, thick hair. Did anyone else have this problem with 55?
That is one of the reasons my #55 hasn't captured my heart fully, her hair bothers me. My Olivia has become a display type/change her clothes not very frequently doll. I ordered her with the free shipping and although her face is lovely, she has a very thin and coarse wig that I just don't care for (it is "not" as bad as your #55's hair).
