Barbie Movie premiere: Nigerian celebrities glam up the pink carpet

It’s a Barbie world, and we have been living in it since the production of the movie was announced.

Over the past few months leading up to the release, the marketing of the Barbie movie has increasingly topped every movie sale rollout we have seen in recent times. For instance, the collaborations with top fashion brands like BeisPrimark , Forever 21, Crocs, makeup brand NYX, food brands, Burger King and Pink Berry, then furniture brand Joybird, just to mention a few, ensured that Barbiecore went deep into our lifestyle and Nigerians were not left out.

From exciting brand collaborations to cultural impact, Barbie has transcended beyond toys to inspire dreams and make a statement.

Marie Claire Nigeria was at FilmHouse cinema to witness the Barbie essence on the pink carpet, as our Nigerian stars dazzled with their glamorous looks at the “Barbie Glam Galore” themed premiere.

The Barbie Movie

Beyond the dazzling pink carpet, we also had the pleasure of watching the Barbie movie. Our Digital Designer’s brief review offers a sneak peek into this culturally significant piece of art.

“Barbie is an incredible social commentary on what it is like to be a woman living In a world dominated by men. It employs wit, great humour and a tender burst of various emotions to show us the realities of our world. It also subtly describes humanity as a whole the idea of purpose, fairness, love and friendship. The entirety of being. In the end, it holds up a mirror to us all, Barbies, Kens, Humans.”
