Star quality

Juan Albuerne is a Spanish repaint artist working primarily with 11.5 inch vinyl fashion dolls to make likenesses of classic and contemporary movie stars. Some of the dolls start out as commercial representations of the stars, but Juan reworks, including sculpting, the faces, hair and clothing to bring the likeness even closer including referencing specific movies. I also like the Kelly doll as Shirley Temple.
