Art Imitates Life - Boudoir Doll Look-A-Likes

I used to create collages of boudoir dolls that I thought resembled either a drawing or a real person. I think it's time to do that again. The doll is a Lenci, catalog #192, made in 1925. She has since lost her dress, and a previous owner, a long time ago, added a red silk scarf on her and possibly the mauve-ish netting. The catalog photo shows how she once appeared. Matching photos are Pola Negri, Lillian Harvey and an actress that I'm not sure about - maybe Lillian Roth? from "Paramount on Parade," 1930. If someone knows for sure, I'd appreciate the info.
