Barbie’s name is on everyone’s lips, as her movie premiers on July 21st.

Way more than just a pretty face,  Barbie’s a fabulous global icon who’s been slaying in just about everything for over 60 years!

Not to be underestimated, she’s hyper-talented and has a mind-blowing resume. Since graduating from college, she’s been a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, and even an astronaut! 

So what would Barbie be like if she were a US college student today?

College Queen and BFF

Barbie is the ultimate college role model. Smart, kind, and hardworking, she’s also fun, ambitious and loves to learn.  Her motto is ‘You can be anything’ and that’s something that we’re so here for!

She’d rock up to college lectures in her bright pink (eco-friendly) Barbie car wearing on-point outfits and throw herself into campus life.

Top of the class, she’d ask all the right questions and gather friends for motivating study sessions in Yugo’s dedicated study rooms. She’d be majoring in something challenging like Law or Astrophysics, but she wouldn’t stop there! 🧑‍🎓

In her free time, she’d socialize with friends, go on romantic dates with dreamy Ken (swoon!), explore her college town, and dive into a bunch of extracurricular activities while heading up the student committee.

She’d be THE dream roomie, with deep late-night chats, movie nights, and makeovers. She’d take you to every sorority and fraternity party, where she’d bust dance moves and be the life and soul! The party don’t start until she walks in. 💃

She’d be serious about the future too, with big career plans, travels, and making a difference. In her words, “Love and imagination can change the world!” 👏💯🔥
Don’t even get us started on her college bedroom…

Top tips on Barbie-fying your student accommodation

Go big or go home with bright colors! 😉

Bedding, cushions and throws should ALL be shades of pink: bubblegum, blush, or hot pink - the brighter and happier, the better! Don’t be afraid to go bold - as Barbie says: “You’re braver than you think”! 💪

Accessorize your walls! 🖼️

Decorate with kitsch posters, prints, fashion illustrations and artwork. Don’t forget some images of Barbie on your walls!

Add some cute touches 😍

Vanity tables, glam chairs, heart-shaped cushions, sequinned pillows, and fuzzy throws all evoke glamour and elegance. Barbie says “What makes you different makes you special” so those personal touches are everything. 💕

Get organized ✅

Stay focused like Barbie by keeping everything neat. Opt for colorful storage boxes and bins, and get a cute desk organizer to keep your study materials in order - so you’re ready for anything! 💅 

Glow-up lighting 💡

Soft, warm lighting will give your room a chilled and welcoming ambience. Hang fairy lights for a magical touch, get a stylish desk lamp or go all out with a statement chandelier!
