And celebrities are taking notice, wearing Barbie’s favored pink in all sorts of original ways.
Rihanna has always been a fan of pink — she frequently sports it for red carpet appearances — but the singer is putting a new spin on the shade. At the Paris premiere of her new film, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” she stepped out in a heavily beaded, feathered Prada ensemble, accessorizing with pink shades and furry sandals for a vacation Barbie look.
Other celebrities have drawn inspiration from Barbie in different ways. Kesha wore a printed jumpsuit with a daisy necklace for a ’70s-inspired look at LAX airport, accessorizing with rhinestone-covered sunglasses, metallic shoes and a sequined headband. And Selena Gomez chose a pink jumpsuit, too, opting for a Miu Miu patterned one that she teamed with silver Gianvito Rossi sandals for the ultimate slumber party Barbie look while out in New York City.
But some have delved even further into Barbie territory. Gigi Hadid wore a Kreist jacket and pants that she paired with blush-colored Aquazzura platform sandals, while Zendaya selected Barbie’s dream eveningwear at a “Spiderman” premiere: a hot pink Ralph & Russo gown with matching Casadei pumps.
