Adwoa Aboah may not have been immortalized in literal Barbie doll form by toymaker Mattel the way her fellow models Ashley Graham and Gigi Hadid have — at least not yet. But on Tuesday night, she proved she’s as fitting a candidate for that particular honor as any model could be. Aboah hosted Revlon‘s “Live Boldly” party during London Fashion Week wearing a show-stopping pink silk halter dress with embellished buttons by Miu Miu that gave off inarguably Barbie-appropriate vibes.
That’s not to say the look was cookie-cutter, by any means. Though Aboah’s beaded pearlescent purse was just as girly and precious as the dress, her other accessories helped keep the look from feeling too vanilla. First and foremost were the shoes, the much-buzzed-about flame heels from Prada that have been popping up everywhere, which Aboah’s stylist Kate Young selected in a neon orange shade. Combined with a handful of rings and bracelets by John Hardy and Aboah’s signature overload of ear bling and close-cropped platinum hair, the oh-so-pretty dress took on an unexpected edge.
Finishing it all off was Aboah’s makeup look, which artist Celia Burton kept simple with a bold cat eye and just the barest hint of lip gloss. Barbie better watch out, because Adwoa Aboah’s coming for the crown.
