“Some people dress for success. I dress to knock’em dead.” –Erica Kane
Husbands. Ex-husbands. Scandals and seductions. From supermodel, to author, to cosmetics company CEO. Since sexy, headstrong Erica Kane made her home on ABC’s award-winning daytime soap, All My Children, Pine Valley hasn’t been the same.
This glamorous, one-of-a-kind Erica Kane Collector Doll re-creates Erica’s look from the unforgettable Crystal Ball episode when she makes her first public appearance back into Pine Valley society.
Erica appears in an alluring ensemble that’s been re-created to the finest detail. Her silky blush satin gown is accented with a detachable train and a luxurious velvet & charmeuse satin wrap. Her look is finished with romantic upswept hair, sparkling clutch purse, shimmery earrings, necklace and bracelet just as Erica wore on the show.
Erica Kane, played by the beautiful and talented Susan Lucci, is a character many viewers aspire to be. “Erica is probably the best part ever written for a woman,” Lucci says of her character.
Erica Kane is the First in a series of dolls from the Daytime Drama Collection(TM) featuring favorite daytime soap stars.
Certificate of Authenticity, reply card and doll stand included.
