The Barbiecore Aesthetic Is This Season’s Biggest Celebrity Style Trend


The Barbiecore trend is here to stay. While Y2K-inspired trends continue to dominate the fashion landscape, Barbiecore takes the nostalgic obsession one step further. And it’s not just to the hot-pink designs we’ve seen on the Valentino and Miu Miu runway but also, the colorful street-style looks inspired by the quintessential American fashion doll, Barbie. Yes, the star of the historic “Barbie” movie – first brought to life in 1959 by Ruth Handler in a strapless, black-and-white-striped bathing suits – is today most synonymous with a look more akin to Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde.” In other words, pink is her color.

With that pop-culture phenomenon shaping the zeitgeist, Barbie-pink looks remain in the forefront, on and off the red carpet. Cardi B embraced the trend in a head-to-toe Chanel outfit. Lizzo posed in a flirty Valentino skater dress and opera gloves. While piling on lots of pink is key, bold statement accessories such as towering platform heels, retro-shaped glasses, and gloves are not to be overlooked.

The style is more versatile than you, perhaps, ever imagined, ranging from sequin miniskirts to dramatic gowns; from string bikinis to sharp, tailored suiting. While there’s no limit to the style of clothing you choose, the color does have to embrace a vivid, powerful shade of pink – and if you dress monochromatically from head to toe, it makes even more of a visual statement.

Ahead, we’ve compiled some of our favorite celebrity Barbiecore takes to date.
