10 Times We Took Style Lessons From Barbie

Plastic works fantastic in the real world too


You no longer have to be under 15 years old to love Barbie openly! The world’s favourite doll is back again, now as an Instagram style star.

Officially created by Mattel, her Instagram account, @barbiestyle, has garnered a whopping 1 million followers since it was launched a little over a year ago, and it’s not hard to see why. Barbie is now a social media and fashion darling, meeting other style icons like Caroline Issa and Eva Chen, travelling from place to place for Coachella and Fashion Week, and snapping regram-worthy #OOTD and #flatlay shots. Is it weird that we’re jealous?

Plus, despite only being 11.5 inches tall, Barbie sure knows how to dress for success — we round up 10 of her best looks and the style lessons we can all learn from them.
