Photos of GOTY 2016 Lea's Fancy White Dress & Accessories

First off, please allow me to apologize. I have not been able to post near as much as I would like this year. This semester's classes have caught me in a whirlwind of work and studying, and I have not had much free time to post. Thank you all for your patience with me! ^_^

Many of us were looking forward to the release of the Girl of the Year 2016 Lea Clark's white, fancy, embroidered dress that we saw leak last year, and were disappointed it was not part of her January 1st, debut. My current hunch is it will be released as part of the mid year GOTY release (June-July) when her movie comes out.

Despite the wait, we've seen the outfit appear on eBay a few more times, now paired with what appears to be the matching shoes and headband. The lovely Lynda kindly took several photos of the complete ensemble modeled on her Lea doll and sent them to us to share here. :)

Do not repost/copy/claim images without written permission.

We've seen the dress before, but it seems like it will now come with a beaded headband. This beaded headband can also be used as a necklace, depending on your preference (though I don't think that is AG's intention). 

Here are looks with it as a headband.

The beads are variations of light blue, and green-yellows to match the dress.

It seems to be 3 lines of plastic beads, strung on elastic, and connected in the back with with a larger elastic band. 

And this is the headband worn as a necklace. 


Here is a photo of the elastic band in the back.

It works well as a necklace since the larger, white elastic piece is hidden. However, I personally would probably prefer for it to be a headband, since the dress is already so decorated with that lovely embroidery. 


The dress will come with a pair of gold sandals.

There is a tiny butterfly decoration with a small, plastic rhinestone.

GIANT EGO TAG

It closes in the back with velcro.

Overall, I think it's a simple but cute design, though I think it may be a little too cutesy for the style of the dress for my taste.

  2. I was so excited for this dress back when it was firsr leaked now that I look at it on lea it seems to short (nothing to do with modesty) I had just pictured it in my mind longer kinda like julie birthday dress. I haven't purchased lea yet and I still plan to, I just wish this beautiful dress was a little longer and flowy like.

    1. I'm glad it's not, if it were longer I would probably despise it and it would wreck my dream of getting Lea a (beautiful short fashionable, not long pioneerish unfashionable) dress.

    2. I see what you mean. I think the shorter length is more reflective of perhaps the warmer Brazilian climate, but I too would prefer if it was longer and more flowy. I'm a sucker for fancy ballgowns even if they're not realistic. XD

      Delete
    3. I never thought of the climate being a factor..I think I just need to see her in person with it on and play with it. It's definitely my favorite piece of clothing in her collection. She forsure needs a bracelet with this though!!

  3. I love it on Lea! I think the headband looks kind of awkward, but I like it as a necklace.

    1. I prefer it without the headband/necklace altogether. :D

  4. Thank you for posting the outfit! I really love the dress, belt and shoes. The beads look awkward to me as a headband (ouch!) but agree that the lovely embroidery is overwhelmed by it as a necklace. I like it worn as a necklace, but with a different outfit.

    1. That's a good idea to use it with a different outfit! I am not a of it with the outfit as a headband or a necklace, but I can see it looking good when paired with other clothes. :)

  5. Love the dress and belt, don't like the headband. The colors seem too bright or something, it just doesn't seem to go with the outfit even thought the colors technically match. Don't like it as a necklace either, too busy! The shoes are cute but I would prefer them without the little butterfly and gemstone. Just plain gold straps would be nice.

    1. Yeah, I agree that the headband is kind of random. I think it might be nice with other of Lea's outfits, but not this one.

      Delete
    2. I need this! xD But the headband/necklace is kind of random (as I mentioned in a reply to ES Dolls) but overall VERY cute! :-)

    3. I agree, I'm not a fan of the headband paired with this outfit, even as a necklace, though it could be cute with another outfit. The dress itself seems lovely enough without it. :)

  7. Yay yay yay yay!! Another post! Anyway, in think this dress is really cute, especially on lea. And I'm also having a bit of trouble deciding what doll to get (if I succeed in the relative convincing thing.) Do you think I should get lea, #61, or #55? The reason I'm not sure about lea is that I fall in love with every GOTY that comes around, and then eventually get over it. So yeah. Thanks!

    1. If I had to choose, I would get Lea, as she won't be here as long as #55 or #61. At least if you get Lea this year you can always get the other dolls next year! :-)

      Delete
    2. Okay, thank you! I will consider lea more seriously now that I think about it. You are right! But I still need to make up, my mind completely, which may take I while. Oh well. XD

    3. Yeah, I know the difficulty of choosing dolls! xD I went through the same thing last year when deciding if I should get Grace, or, well, about 7 other different dolls! But I eventually decided on Grace and was not disappointed! What I did to decide was as I was walking home from school, I thought to myself "What doll do most relate to? What doll do I feel like I can imagine seeing myself with?" And yeah, I sound kinda crazy. But it does work!
      (By the way I am the person who suggested Lea)

      Delete
    4. Thank you so much! I really can see myself with lea. And no, you do not sound crazy. I definitely understand! Thanks so much for your help! Now, how to convince my aunt to let me get a doll...hmmm... just kidding! Or not! :D

    1. Thank you! I have gotten mixed reviews on her, mostly about her hair. If I get her, hopefully, I'll be able to take care of her hair properly. And yes, I do agree that #55 looks very photogenic (which is great, because I am a doll photographer. Thanks for your help!

  12. This is really a gorgeous outfit. The blues and greens look so lovely on the white, and the style of the dress is beautiful, too. Lea looks stunning in it. I don't own Lea, but I just might have to snag this dress! ;)

  13. Did anyone see the announcement this morning from American Girl and Amazon???!!! There are four live action T.V. specials coming to Amazon Prime Video soon! Two "follow the lives" of two different Beforever characters (prays for Melody Ellison and a Julie one, the real deal this time) and the other will feature a girl of the year. It didn't specifically state if it was Lea, but that's my guess considering the first one will be available this fall. The fourth special we don't know who is starring in it, but American Girl made a several year contract with Amazon, so there could be a full AG T.V. series coming next year!!!!

    1. Yes! I am so excited about this and hope it'll help more girls relate to the characters!

  14. Hi, LissieandLilly!
    Thank you so much for posting even though it sounds like you are so busy :)
    I am glad that this is hopefully going to be released, as I know that a lot of people wanted it. Although I'm not that keen and I have a feeling it will be pretty expensive, I am glad they are adding something more fancy, unlike her casual clothes.

    There is a BREAKING NEWS! AG is releasing brand new items on February 11th! @agdollflorida has the list of items. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT NEWS, Bitty Twins are RETIRING! They are being replaced by (dun dunn duuuuunnnn) WELLIE WISHERS! Yeah! I am not very excited for that, but alas, it is going to happen and we can't do anything about it. It is happening later this year. Oh, and Lea's 3rd book is being released on February 11th too! VERY HAPPY! Thanks for reading! (P.S you will see this comment on some of your other posts.)

    1. I like the butterfly motif, even if I do think it makes the sandals look a little too cutesy. :D

      Delete
    2. The butterfly is a bit too sweet but at least it is subtle. The sandals will still work with other outfits. I love the dress, and the headband is cute though not with this dress. A simple gold or turquoise colored headband would be more suitable. Over all, I think it is lovely.

  19. There has been an inordinate amount of spam comments on this post and enough is enough. Take rude, degrading, attention seeking, prideful, off topic comments elsewhere. I am extremely busy and have no desire to waste an hour sifting through spam when I have so much to study, and so many readers that left thoughtful comments who I want to connect with and reply to. According to COPPA laws, this blog is not directed at children under 13 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you are older than 13 and still contributing to this whirlpool of immaturity, stop. Grow up. Or at least carry on elsewhere.

  21. I was really excited for this dress.... um, well I just think mabe a braclet or something else would be a bit better insted of that necklace/ headband thingy..... and I think mabe not the butterfly, but although I do kinda like the butterfly on the shoes I just thin a few modifications would do the trick! ^_^ XD

    1. That's a really great idea! I never thought of a bracelet, but that would definitely be a better fit for the outfit for me than the headband/necklace, and it just feels like there aren't enough AG scale bracelets. :D

    1. Hello. Here is a suggestion. How many caramel hair coloured dolls do you have? And how many blondes do you have? If you have none of either, I personally really like Lea, but if you have loads of dolls similar to her (*cough cough kanani*) Julie would be be your option. Hope this helps!
