It’s Barbie’s world and we just live in it. Thai actress and model Kimberley Anne Woltemas proved this statement true with her take on this season’s hottest trend. Ahead of Dior’s Haute Couture show, the Thai style icon stepped out in Paris dressed in a summer-friendly look. And it’s peak Barbiecore.
Gracing Dior’s front row
It’s Couture Fashion Week and celebrities and fashionistas alike have flocked to Paris to discover the latest offerings from the world’s top couture brands. As a fashion show regular, Thai star Kimberley Anne Woltemas couldn’t miss out on the fun and flew to France for the occasion. The actress graced Dior’s Haute Couture 2023-2024 presentation, turning heads in an asymmetrical white dress from the brand Pre-Fall 2023 collection. She topped off the gown with a Lady Dior minibag and dewy makeup with nude pink accents. The look perfectly channeled the theme of Dior’s collection, which drew inspiration from the cult of the goddesses.

But before sitting front row, Kimberley joined a show countdown and shared an Instagram post with her nearly 11 million followers. In the pictures, Kimberley strutted down the Parisian streets in a matching hot pink set that featured a mini skort and a tailored short-sleeve top. The look was gracefully accessorized with a Lady D-Joy bag and black tassel loafers.
The Thai starlet is always dressed in style, but her chic answer to this year’s biggest fashion trend didn’t go unnoticed. Although Barbiecore has been permeating the fashion world since as early as last year, most of the takes on the style tap into the Y2K craze. Kimberly, however, sported the bubblegum color, offering a preppy and elegant twist. The look is Barbiecore as it gets and comes just in time for us to borrow some inspiration before the release of what promises to be the film of the summer.
