Cissy - casually walking the runway, making and entrance or maybe on a mission... appearing effortless indeed. Well, maybe not. Practice makes perfect, but wires, hidden stands, a carefully placed prop to lean on and even the dolls natural balance certainly helps the illusion of a little magic. The mission is to capture a moment in time and play with the natural qualities and texture of the fabrics that the doll is wearing — may suggest the appearance of movement. Often it's the mantua of tweaking ever so slightly an arm, leg or tilt of the head. Cissy was so well designed, that almost 70 years later she's still got what it takes.... No super model, Victoria's Secret angel or queen of the red carpet, except maybe Queen Elizabeth, can claim that long of a run!
