2023 may have been the year of Barbie—the movie, the talk, the trendy pink-heavy fashion alike—but the coming and going of the New Year doesn’t mean we’ve put the doll back in her box. On the contrary, we’re still very much enamored with the whole phenomenon.
And we’re not the only ones. Kamie Crawford, who has been in on the trend since its inception, isn’t leaving Barbie behind in 2023. In a look that had us reminiscing on her epic hot pink Halloween costume, the television personality took to Instagram on Jan. 12 to announce her continued dedication to pink fashion—Barbie-style.
In an effort to up her posting game, the 31-year-old shared a never-before-seen series of photos in the most dazzling hot pink dress. With a textured material and flattering front cut-out, the number made for exactly the sort of outfit that we would expect of the fashionable doll.
“Hi Barbie! 💕🎀💄👛🦩,” she aptly captioned the trio of photos. “Sidenote,” she added, “I can’t believe I never posted these. I have so many pics just sitting in my phone but my goal this year is to get them out into the universe. We’re doing it for the gram in 2024 so pls disregard the time lapses 😂.”
Like we said, it isn’t the first time that Crawford has leaned into the Barbie aethestic. It was the very essence of her Halloween costume, which we still aren’t over. The hue seems to be somewhat of a fun closet staple, for which we don’t blame her—she looks great in the vibrant shade.
