Even though the film “Barbie” isn’t planned for release until July 2023, the pic based on Mattel’s iconic doll starring Margot Robbie has already bounced into the collective social media consciousness.
Electronic tongues were wagging in anticipation of the film this week when a movie trailer was released to a waiting world.
One aspect of the “Barbie” juggernaut is the rise of Barbie-core in fashion. Barbie-core has even earned its own search category on online shopping sites around the world.
Model Abigail Friend rides the Barbie-core wave with an outfit of her own and a very Barbie-pink dress from Shein.
