Fashionista 121 is distinguished from the rest of the line by her prosthetic left leg. Unlike 133, who came on a multi-jointed body, this doll has the standard five points of articulation that most of the Fashionistas have by default, however there is some rotational movement to the hip on the left leg that we don't see in the standard bodies (or on the right leg of this doll). Some dolls in this line are noted by being shorter, taller, or chubbier, but (leg aside) this particular model is on the standard height/size body.
This doll is in a medium skin tone and has long brown hair and green painted eyes. Her accessories include a sleeveless sweatshirt dress, hoop earrings and white flat shoes. Her prosthesis is an above-knee one, and seems to be sculpted to resemble one with a microprocessor-type knee. I'm mildly surprised that they went with an above-knee style, since below-knee amputations are so much more common, but either way it's an interesting design.
Let's take a closer look!

I have to confess, I love the idea of this doll far more than I love the execution. I'm still glad she exists, but having seen prosthesis wearing amputee character dolls from Monster High (like Vandala and Hexiciah) with far more interesting designs, I couldn't help but feel a little underwhelmed here. But to be fair, a big part of that might just be how unimpressed I was with her outfit.
In any case, I love that a doll with a prosthetic leg has become part of the Fashionista line and I'm happy to have her in my collection! If you've picked her up, I'd love to hear what you think.
