Hi Barbie! Hi Ken! With her iconic style and boundless imagination, Barbie has captured millions of hearts for generations. On Friday 21 July 2023, the long-awaited Barbie film will finally hit cinemas. None other than Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling have taken on the iconic roles of Barbie and Ken.

While the hype around the film continues to grow, a new trend is also taking the fashion world by storm: Barbiecore. In this article, we dive deeper into the enchanting world of Barbie and share some must-have Barbiecore items.

The new Barbie movie

Let's start with a well-deserved compliment to the marketing team of the Barbie movie, because it seems like there is hardly anyone who has not heard or seen of the much-anticipated new film.

Of course, its success is partly due to the excellent casting choices of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Both are known for their charisma, talent and undeniable appeal. Unsurprisingly, their casting has only added to the excitement surrounding the film.

We were taken past shimmering pink slides, a stunning pink beach and parties full of colour and magic.

Suddenly, everything turned out to be less than perfect and Barbie and Ken had to seek help in the real world, where she soon causes a stir. Haven't seen the trailer yet? Then watch it below!
