Captioning this image with the hashtag “#AspenBarbie”, Paris Hilton rocked a shocking pink ski jacket and black ski pants on a trip to Aspen with her now fiancé, Chris Zylka, over the Christmas holidays. The 37-year-old DJ also donned her signature oversize sunglasses and a matching pink ski helmet. In the words of Miss Hilton, “That’s hot.”


Kim Kardashian West

Yep, then I made myself a smoothie

Kim Kardashian West loves to switch up her look. Remember when she had long blond Barbie-inspired locks and clad herself in an array of outfits from her husband’s Yeezy Season 6 line? Here, the reality-TV starlet is pictured sipping on a smoothie in a knit crop top, sweatpants and high-heeled ankle boots in icy grey and neutral tones.


Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid looked like a modern-day fashion doll when she slipped into a shiny pink leather jacket (with multiple zips and fringing) and flared trousers in New York City last summer. But the in-demand model didn’t stop there. For her choice of footwear, she opted for Aquazurra’s blush pink platform heels embellished with pearls.



A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Beyoncé showed up to this year’s Grammy Awards in an extravagant, all-black ensemble. Channelling the style of a black-tie Barbie, Queen Bey looked like a million bucks wearing a cut-out velvet gown (with broad shoulders and not one, but two thigh-slits), dazzling diamond earrings and a bejewelled clutch.
