Along with the premiere of her debut film, Margot Robbie stars in Barbie: A Fairytopia the sequel to Mattels much ado about nothing movie this summer heralds the inarguably sweet-look makeover of actresses everywhere.
In the upcoming film “Barbie: The Movie,” Barbie is portrayed as the unlikely muse of 2022. The antithesis of goth girl summer’s emo attitude, Barbie style is all about looking pretty in pink. Actor Margot has been papped strutting in Western flares and a waistcoat; and rollerblading in stretchy ’80s neon gymgear. (Think: Jane Fonda home exercise videos on acid.) Her Ken, Ryan Gosling, has twinned her vibrant looks, donning a fresh bleached hair-do to fit the part.
Meanwhile, off-screen couple Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have been making waves on the fashion front. The pair attended the premiere of Machine Gun Kelly’s new documentary Life in Pink, looking every inch a real-life Barbie and Ken. Fox wore a pink wig by 2021 LVMH Prize winner Nensi Dojaka and MGK wore rising star Chet Lo. The following day, Fox continued her Barbie-inspired looks in metallic separates by The Andamane, worn with a crystal-choked mini bag by L’Alingi.
Other A-listers channeling Barbie this summer include Kim Kardashian, who she switched her gothic black Balenciaga leggings for powder-pink pantaboots , extra sweet with an embellished hoodie and a encrusted Balenciaga Hourglass bag previous to this.
Everyone knows Barbie pink is in right now. But it belongs to Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli. His autumn/winter 2022 collection was created in collaboration with Pantone, and it showcased hot pink as the standout hue.
The Barbie-pink shade has proven popular with celebrities, who have worn it on the red carpet. Lizzo wore a Barbie-esque dress at a screening this month; Simone Ashley channeled her inner Barbie at the BAFTAs; Dua Lipa wore an off-stage version of the shade while on tour; Sebastian Stan looked very Ken in a pink tuxedo at the Met Gala.
