Color Me Style: The Season of Barbiecore Pink is Here!


Barbiecore? That’s a thing? you ask? Well, yes. Hot pink fashion is super hot right now, not only because of recently released photos of Margot Robbie in the upcoming Barbie movie, but because it’s the summer of fun, feminine, flirty, & fierce fashion! Top A-listers are appearing in all-pink for red carpet events, major fashion shows, & all over social media every. single. day. Additionally, pink is popping up on runways & go-to retailers to take a not-pink-enough world by storm!

Also, Barbiecore has been present on stage with musician Conan Gray at Coachella, High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, & Dua Lipa for her Future Nostalgia tour.

Met Galas of years past also rocked the pink, including film icon Glenn Close; Pam & Tommy lead Sebastian Stan; Victoria Beckham‘s daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz; & singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves.

Not to mention that Barbiecore is taking over social media with Instagram posts from reality television stars Kim Kardashian & Khloe Kardashian, along with model Hailey Bieber.

Film festivals have been no exception to Barbiecore, especially on model Caro Daur, singer Ciara, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, & the unstoppably stylish Zendaya.

Barbie in all textures & cuts continue to gain attention on model Duckie Thot at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue launch, actress Megan Fox in New York City promoting Machine Gun Kelly’s documentary Life in Pink, & the incomparably gorgeous & talented Lizzo at the premiere for Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

Cover Craze: Kim Kardashian Goes Blonde on Allure’s August 2022 Issue!


Even if you’re not a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner empire, you can’t deny the impact that the 5 sisters (Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, & Kylie) have had on social media, fashion, beauty, & pop culture. Most recently, Kim Kardashian is the star of Allure‘s August 2022 cover, where she speaks with writer Danielle Pergament, getting real about her career & family goals, the public’s perception of her, beauty standards, & her commitment to her beauty regimen with her recently launched nine-step skincare line SKKN by Kim. Along with the article, the images are photographed by Danielle Levitt, featuring Kim decked out in long blonde hair & styled by Kyle Luu with pieces from Skims, Alaia, Bulgari, Paris Texas, Schiaparelli Haute Couture, & Jimmy Choo.

Kim states, “There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs…My mentality was…always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”

On the media’s perception of her success & intelligence, Kim shares, “I think I’ve always just been the underdog…Being on a reality show and that’s not respected…Feeling like I need to work harder to show you guys that I’m not the person you think.” The aspiring lawyer also adds, “It would be amazing to retire being Kim K and just be a lawyer. But if it all went away, I would be just as happy…“I would want people to walk away and be like, ‘She was a good person, and she did some good things.’”

Check out the video below from Allure, where Kim answers questions about beauty:
