Barbie The Movie, by Greta Gerwig, has been one of the most anticipated films of recent times, not only because of its original plot —the doll questions her existence and is banished from her perfect world—, but also because of its 90s aesthetic. Finally, the summer of the premiere has arrived and, with it, the trend barbiecore reaches its peak popularity.
From TikTok to Instagram, every corner of the internet has caught the hot pink fever. And, obviously, celebrities and fashion houses have not been left out. In addition, the marketing strategy behind the film has been unprecedented, creating a contemporary icon from one over 60 years old.
Mattel co-founder Ruth Handler invented Barbie in 1959 with the intention of giving girls a role model. It was especially important because, then, the only acceptable role for women was that of wives and mothers, and therefore all the dolls were babies to be cared for. Barbie was the first doll in adult form who also developed multiple professions, from teacher to astronaut, without neglecting her passion for fashion!
