Barbie (2023)

Barbie (played by Margot Robbie), one of the most iconic toys in existence, is now getting the live-action treatment in her own film.  Cast out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough, Barbie finds herself transported to the real world alongside Ken.  Barbie’s outfits are bright and outlandish, perfect for a doll.  Getting exact matches for the costumes is going to be almost impossible, so focus on recreating the look as closely as you can while channeling the overall vibe.  You can use some iron-on star patches to add details to her pink cowgirl outfit, and if you don’t feel like rollerblading in your costume all night, a pair of neon high-tops can be easily swapped in.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992 Film)

Buffy (Kristy Swanson) is a blonde valley girl who only cares about fashion, cheerleading, gymnastics, and sometimes boys. But that all changes when she discovers she’s meant to be a slayer… specifically, a vampire slayer. This version of Buffy was the original creation of the character, which kicked off the TV and book series.

Cher from Clueless

While it may seem as though Cher has a never-ending supply of clothing, the Valley girl does have a few standard pieces. By matching a pleated skirt with knee-high socks, a Cher makeover is pretty easy to achieve. Dressing like her will also make your cell phone addiction a little less annoying to everyone else.
