Princess Annalise from Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper

Barbie is an American (and in many place, global) household name. And it’s not just a doll line. She long ago branched into movies. And some, like Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper have a huge fan following. For good reason, too! The songs (where Barbie is voiced by Melissa Lyons) are catchy and Barbie herself (voiced in speaking parts by Kelly Sheridan) is an inspiration.

If you want to channel your inner Barbie princess – and the good she tries to do – you’ll want to start with a pink ballgown. A few examples are included above since a princess rarely has only one dress. You’ll also need a long blonde wig, a gold tiara, a gold choker, and gold shoes. Gold ribbon can add bow details to your gown as well. And of course you’ll want a white cat just like the princess!

Barbie from Toy Story

In Toy Story 3, Barbie is a pretty blonde doll who ends up being donated to Sunnyside Daycare with Andy’s toys, including Woody. There she meets Ken, who seems to be her the boy of her dreams. Barbie’s outfit is based on an 80s look, when aerobics, leg warmers, and bright fluorescent colors were in.

Pretty Hearts Barbie

Barbie stole our hearts as a child! This was our very first toy — Pretty Hearts Barbie (#14473). Though it was released in 1996, it had that classic 80s look.
