Nostalgia Is Having A Moment With The Barbiecore Fashion Trend

We all can't wait to see the new "Barbie" movie when it comes out next year. Inspired by the beloved doll, this upcoming film will feature the beautiful Margot Robbie and the dashing Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken (via IMDb). Of course, countless former and current Barbie doll owners have eagerly awaited this movie and are excited to see it in the theaters.

The upcoming "Barbie" movie has sparked so much excitement and nostalgia in our society that it even inspired the current Barbiecore aesthetic trend in the fashion world. According to Today, the Barbiecore trend is all about wearing lots of adorable pink 80s-inspired pieces. This ultra-feminine style goes along with a few other prominent 2022 trends, such as upbeat dopamine dressing and even the chic metallic shoe trend. After all, who couldn't imagine Barbie wearing a shiny pair of pink heels? The Barbiecore aesthetic is as fun as it is nostalgic, and we're almost as excited about this fashion trend as we are for the movie.

Barbiecore is everywhere

There's nothing subtle about the Barbiecore aesthetic, especially considering how many iconic fashion designers and celebrities have been flaunting the look. For instance, look at Valentino's PP Fall/Winter 2022 to 2023 collection. This bold collection is the epitome of the Barbiecore look, as the outfits consistently feature only bright pink hues with no other colors. The collection features many unique designs and silhouettes, all in pink.

Plus, the one and only Anne Hathaway turned heads as she embraced the Barbiecore aesthetic, wearing a sparkly, long-sleeved bright pink Valentino mini dress with sky-high neon pink platform block heels. But Hathaway isn't the only celebrity jumping on board the trend. The gorgeous and talented Zendaya flaunted an edgier spin on the Barbiecore look, wearing dark, smokey, shimmery pink eyeshadow with reddish-pink false tears and an ultra-glossy pink lip (via Instagram).

Furthermore, the famously stunning Megan Fox rocked her variation of the Barbiecore aesthetic more than once. For example, the gorgeous movie star recently flaunted long pastel pink hair with sexy pink outfits in New York City, as seen in an Instagram post. Moreover, we're still not over her infamous "Daddy Issues Barbie" post from May 2021 when she wore a Barbie-inspired monochromatic look to the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
