I’ve been counting down the days until July 20th to be first in line to see Barbie The Movie! (Subtitle: Ken the Accessory - Like a Purse with Pants.) With all the trailers streaming, I feel as though I’ve already seen the movie, ha. It looks campy, witty, satirical and, yes, thought-provoking! The production sets and costume design are next level, vividly colorful and absolutely stunning. It truly gives you the Barbie “feels” as if her world has come to life. I love that Barbieland's vibe is mid-century Palm Springs.
I bought three Barbie dolls and her iconic pink vintage Corvette inspired by the movie (see photos). I appreciate that the film pays homage to many of Barbie’s fashions from past eras including the 1960s and 1970s (the coolest eras, IMO). One of my favorite things about collecting vintage and Mod Barbies are the fashions and this movie will not disappoint! What’s also cool is how Margot Robbie has been method-dressing on her press tour wearing versions of Barbie’s classic outfits. Margot's amazing fashion stylist and curator, Andrew Mukamal, did an immaculate job recreating Barbie's past looks dressing Margot in Atelier Versace, Hervé Leger, Manolo Blahnik, Vivienne Westwood, Prada and Chanel, to name a few. For those of us who don't have that kind of cash, I found some cute Barbiecore fashions on Amazon!
What is Barbiecore? The Barbiecore trend has been hot for a while and I’M HERE FOR IT. Barbiecore fashion is anything that stylishly references Barbie's pink wardrobe. Think overtly feminine silhouettes, mini hemlines, sky-high heels and sparkle. LOTS of sparkle! Basically, anything and everything you’d expect to see on the iconic doll herself. I found this adorable best seller summer dress on Amazon. I love it because it's lined, has pockets and a flattering cut. I purchased the dress in Barbie pink but there are other pretty colors and patterns too.
Ok dolls, I need to start planning my Barbiecore outfit for the premiere! Peace and love always!
Update: This is what I wore (see below). The movie is so amazing that I'm going to see it for a third time tomorrow!
