Come on Barbie let’s go party!

Barbie has been in the spotlight since 1959. With the upcoming Barbie movie releasing on July 21, 2023, the Barbiecore trend has quickly become prominent among women, girls, AND boys.

Barbiecore is a fashion trend that involves wearing apparel that Barbie would wear. It includes a lot of pink and glamorous attire. 

Valentino’s Pink PP fashion show brought monochromatic pink onstage and this influenced the Barbiecore trend.
