1961 - Margot got just one year with the Alexander Doll Company. Intended to compete with Mattel and Barbie, Margot was the "mature" high-fashion doll. No debutante, Margot was, well, just a little bit naughty. Her wild wardrobe colors, popular in the 1960s, did not harmonize with the demure debutante Cissette. Her upswept beehive hairdo, pink nail polish and exaggerated eye makeup with blue eye shadow was not something a young lady would wear... just yet. The basic Margot arrived in the newest craze of the bikini - and no nylons!
