Ava Gardner was a great star, a breathtaking beauty and famed celebrity, yet she came from humble beginnings and became a glamorous sophisticate. Artist David Wolfe has captured Ava Gardner's special allure in a new paper doll book for Paper Studio Press. A seductive portrait and a trio of Ava dolls grace the cover, designed to emulate the lush style of paper doll books of the 1950s. The carefully researched and beautifully rendered costumes include such hits as Show Boat, Mogambo, The Barefoot Contessa, One Touch of Venus and many more. The fashions in the book chart Ava Gardner's long career from her first film in 1941 through the following decades. They include both contemporary styles and period pieces. This new star vehicle paper doll is a must for movie fans and collectors of David Wolfe's inimitable artistic flair.
