Hello. My name is Marianne, and I am an Insta-addict. It’s true, of all the social media platforms available to me, Instagram is by far my favourite. I am constantly looking through my newsfeed and also my explore tab. There is nothing better than finding a new, amazing Insta account to follow.
So when I stumbled upon what I am calling my latest obsession, I knew I had to share.
Barbie has joined Instagram, and it is the best thing ever!
Just in time for Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan and Paris, Barbie is showing us all the gorgeous details of her outfits. From selfies to throwbacks, outfit of the day pics to swoon-worthy accessory shots, Barbie is definitely winning Instagram at the moment.
The details go way beyond anything I ever had as a little girl. I mean I always coveted Barbie’s adorable pink pumps and shiny dresses (it was the 80s, after all!), but now I am actually Googling the images to get Barbie’s latest in my size. Thankfully, Barbie is helpful in that capacity; she tags the designers she’s wearing, the magazines she’s reading and even the websites she’s visiting, so that we can all be in the know.
The account is run in conjuncture with Mattel’s website BarbieCollector.com, a site that allows fans to buy outfits and accessories for their Barbies. Best of all, each outfit that appears on Barbie’s Instagram is then available for purchase!
So while I may not be able to copy Barbie’s style in my own life, if I dig up my old Barbies and I can definitely give them a 2014 makeover.
