Step aside Malibu Barbie, Ellie Thumann is the new Miami Barbie. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie channeled the Mattel character during Miami Swim Week at the W South Beach ahead of the SI Swimsuit Runway Show.

She rocked a bright pink terry towel-esque low-rise skirt from Versace featuring a large safety pin detail. Stylists Danielle and Alix paired the designer number with a white bra top layered above a stringy halter-neck pink bikini. The YouTube star accessorized with dainty gold necklaces and bracelets, white platform heels and a gorgeous sparkly pink Judith Leiber bag.

Her blonde locks were tossed up into a messy up-do with face-framing pieces left loose and curled by Hayley Logan. Makeup artist Allison Kaye opted for a full face of dewy glam, including rosy blush, glossy lips and a sheer wash of pink eyeshadow.

“a barbie filled week,” Thumann captioned a carousel post of the look she shared with her 1.6 million Instagram followers.

The Arizona native, who now lives in South Carolina, showed off her washboard abs and toned, tan legs.

“You ARE Barbie!” fellow 2023 rookie Lauren Chan commented.

“She is everything !!!” Mady Dewey added.

“glowing so hard,” one fan wrote.

“Pink is your COLOR 💗👙✨,” another person gushed.
