Anne Curtis wearing Blush Beauty Barbie’s dress (P2,298), one of my favorites from Plains & Prints’ latest collection
I was shopping bridal shower outfits at Plains & Prints last week, and while I needed to pick white pieces, I was always drawn to pink. I think my Barbie dolls are largely responsible for my love of pink and feminine dresses—and having a slender figure. I still remember all my dolls (and how short I ended up cutting their hair, thinking it would grow back, haha), and I know they all had such pretty outfits. I remember I would always wish I could dress like Barbie when I was a kid. And now, all of us former little girls who grew upto become fabulous adults can wear some of Barbie’s iconic outfits!

Ever since her debut 58 years ago, Barbie continues to inspire many women around the world to be everything they want to be. She’s career-oriented, fashionable, and never goes out of style. Her influence is ever-evolving and continues to be relevant from generation to generation. Barbie is an international fashion icon, and her timeless elegance is what inspired Plains & Prints’ holiday collection.

Bringing functional style and glamour together, the Barbie Loves Plains & Prints collection features pieces inspired by Barbie dolls from different eras—Teenage Fashion (1959), Parisienne (1959), All That Jazz (1968), Winter Concert (2002), Mod Redux (2004), Ballet Wishes (2013), Blush Beauty (2015), Party Perfect (2016), and Soda Shop (2016) Barbie dolls. It’s amazing how Barbie’s outfits from these eras are still wearable (by us!) today. And it’s so cute how Plains & Prints really made miniature versions of the reinvented styles so Barbie can wear the collection, too.

To Plains & Prints brand ambassador Anne Curtis, this collection is her little girl dreams come true. “I’ve loved Barbie since I was a child and I remember how I used to say that I just want to be like her. I’m glad that this collection allows me to relive that dream as a grown-up woman,” Anne says. Same, Anne. Same.
