Photos of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling on the set of the new Barbie movie have been breaking the internet this summer. They are rockin' everything we love about the iconic Barbie and Ken duo; from the costumes to the hairstyles — fans can't get enough.
While audiences will have to wait an entire year until the live-action movie hits theaters (the release date is July 21, 2023), the Barbiecore trend is already here.
What is Barbiecore? It is everything pink, sparkly and fun. On-trend types can make Barbiecore their own with style and sophistication or bust old Barbies out of storage for nostalgic campy inspo. Have fun and go full tilt with head-to-toe pink for the perfect 'fit, or add a pop of color with a perfectly pink bag, nails, or shoes.
Houston's legendary Lizzo is just one of the celebs jumping on the Barbiecore trend igniting her IG feed with lovely pink hair and a hot pink Valentino ensemble for the Los Angeles premiere of Lizzo's Watch Out For the Big Grrrls. Most recently, Jennifer Lopez stepped out in sky-high blush pink platform heels on a trip to the Louvre during her romantic Parisian honeymoon with Ben Affleck.
Locals don't have to be a celebrity to have fun in this Barbie-inspired moment. Here is a sampling of where to stock up on your Barbiecore essentials in Houston.
