The Barbiecore motif is one of the summer’s hottest fashion trends, and we’re blown away by Shay Mitchell’s take. On Thursday, the 36-year-old actress shared a portrait captured by photographer Greg Swales in which she was done up just like the iconic Barbie doll herself.

Makeup artist Diana Shin opted for thick black eyeliner, bold blue eyeshadow and lots of lashes, as well as shimmery pink highlighter on Mitchell’s cheekbones. Celebrity hairstylist Cesar Deleon Ramirez used a wig to achieve the star’s perky blonde ponytail, complete with eyebrow-skimming bangs and a sweet pink bow.

Mitchell was photographed in profile as she blew a pink bubble with gum. “Hey Barbie,” she aptly captioned the image.

“Now that's a photoshoot shay whoaaaaa❤️❤️,” R. M. Drake commented.

“😍😍😍😍😍 love this so much,” Vicky Alvarez Rivera stated.

“this barbie is a business woman🔥,” one person applauded.


“She’s a Barbie dream girl💕,” someone else added.

Mitchell is the founder of the popular luggage brand Béis, and several followers suggested in the comments section that perhaps the image is a teaser for a forthcoming Barbie-themed collection of travel essentials.
