Think Barbie is just summer fashion? Think again! Kim Kardashian was in Los Angeles last night for the annual Baby2Baby Gala, which raises millions each year for children in need (Kardashian has donated more than $5 million to the cause; she and Skims co-founders Emma and Jens Grede at the party). For the occasion, she dressed herself in bold, head-to-toe pink.
If you remember last summer, stars like Meghan Fox, Lizzo, and the Kardashians all wore pink nonstop, and brands like Valentino made the bubblegum hue one of their recurring themes . (You’ll also remember the viral photos of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling for the Greta Gerwig Barbie movie for this a trend named). To carry this vivacious vibe into fall, Kardashian wore a pink bow-tie gown from Balenciaga, paired with the label’s mini tote and satin pointed-toe boots. Sure, monochromatic dressing is one of Kardashian’s hallmarks, but in all-over Pepto Bismol pink, her look made a clear nod to the enduring Barbie aesthetic. All she needs is a matching Ken.
