Comments/Fun Facts Other Versions of this outfit (may contain files larger than 100 kb, click at your own peril!)
  • First Year Only
  • A Flip Side Fashion
  • It was not named after a Jem song
  • There is an old Barbie outfit of the same name.
  • Sophisticated Lady and the other Flip Sides in the 1986 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue shows a "button" on the jacket, the hat ribbon looks very dark, the tights are sheer and blue, and the shoes are straight edged blue pumps.
  • Sophisticated Lady in the 1986 German Leaflet (same photo appears in the 1986 Belgium catalogue):  the hat ribbon looks very dark, the tights, necklace and sunglasses are not shown.  She is shown wearing chromed pink straight edge shoes like 1st ed. Jem's.
  • The drawing of Sophisticated Lady on the 1986 Flip Side Fashions box art is close, but shows a blue "button" on the jacket.
  • The Second Year package photograph of Sophisticated Lady, (the same photo is used for the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, the 1987 France/UK Toy Fair Catalogue, the Second Year Jem Catalogue Poster) looks like the produced version.
  • The Jem version for sure, appeared on the cartoon.
  • The back box always says what is contained with the doll.  The bold words in my descriptions are what Hasbro themselves stated came with the doll; 
    Contains; lamé jacket, hat with band, blouse, skirt, tights, collar necklace, sandals and sunglasses.
    lamé jacket; Mostly pink lamé with large puffy shoulders.  Blue trim on cuffs, collar, lapels and around waist. Single velcro closure in front.
    hat with band; made of same material as the skirt (pink velveteen) with a blue shiny velvet ribbon around band.

  • tights; Medium blue, matte stretch tights. 
    collar necklace; Pink plastic collar necklace.  The colour can vary, I'm not sure if it's country-related differences or not.  Thanks to Isabelle for that scan!
    sandals: medium, cornflower blue.
  • See a pic of all the blue sandals together to tell them apart.
  • My sandals do not have the L/R markings, and the strap is a bit less streamlined than I am used to seeing.  Go to Jem Sandals to read more on this.
  • Sunglasses; ultramarine blue. 
  • The darkest blue of the "triangular" sunglasses in Jemland.  See a photo of all the similar blue glasses together to tell them apart.
