She continued, “Creating the fashion for this movie was so special, and I wanted to make sure I honored the rich history of the doll and its many style iterations over the years.”
Jacqueline also drew inspiration from 1960s beach culture, replicating the whimsical color palettes and dress shapes of the era. “All the Barbies wear retro dresses of different designs,” she said, noting, “The early ’60s style pink gingham dress is one of my favorites.”
And while it may have been challenging to figure out which pieces to narrow down, Jacqueline made sure that every item felt true to Barbie.
“Barbie’s wardrobe comes from her love of clothes,” she explained. “She wears outfits because she enjoys dressing up and always dresses perfectly for whatever she is doing. Barbie’s style is playful and full of joy. It is over the top and, perhaps, looks superficial but it’s actually a big part of her character.”
