As the world turns hyper pink ahead of the Barbie movie and Margot Robbie portraying the iconic character has personified the Barbiecore movement with a stellar collection of iconic dresses as she globetrots for the movie premieres, people all over the world have been seeing pink.
The actors best looks took inspiration from Barbie’s clothing archive, including a black-and-white-striped swimsuit the doll wore when it was introduced in 1959, and a Versace pencil skirt and blazer, which morphed into a sequined pink bodice and tulle skirt.
Margot Robbie has not been the only one having fun with the Barbiecore dressing. Everyone's favourite celebrities and fans worldwide have all been having a Pink moment. Gemma Chan, Anne Hathaway and Florence Pugh had standout moments on the pink carpet.
However this is not the first time pink has captured global attention. One of Marilyn Monroe's most famous looks was in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. During her rendition of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," the actress—dripping in diamonds, rocked a hot-pink strapless evening gown with matching gloves.
Pink was a major force in the early-2000s, remember the unabashedly-pink Elle Woods from Legally Blonde or Carrie’s pink tutu in Sex & the City cementing its status in pop culture, with designers turning to the famous hue pink for LV Pochettes and Dior Saddles.
If the trending bold fuchsia hot pink is not your thing you may lean towards the softer ballet shades that have been sprinkled throughout SS23 collections and will certainly have more longevity in your wardrobe rotation.
Soft, feminine styles in pale & pastel pink have been widely used for light, floaty fabrics, but we have also seen it on more structured tailored garments.
