Who looks impeccably cool and chic—even after an all-nighter, celebrating with friends like Pop Star™ and dancing for hours with Disco Diva™? EARTH ANGEL™, that’s who! She may look sweetly celestial, but watch out: she’ll turn her icy stare on gossipy gals, shutting down unkind words with one frosty look. She’s a true friend, though, helping Leading Lady™ throw a soirée for her favorite charity and mentoring Play Boy™ to tame his antics so his star power shines. She’s elegant and timeless, with a brilliant brain and an uncanny sense of style.
