Sporting a long blonde wig with oversized curls, pink cat-eye sunglasses, a hot-pink Moschino leather dress, and fluffy pink wrap, her over-the-top attire fit right in with the Gala’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme. To create her Barbie-inspired ensemble, she called upon stylist Erica Cloud and Jeremy Scott. Just like the plastic fashionista, Musgraves wore Forevermark diamond earrings

Mattel seemed to love the look — here’s what the official Barbie Instagram account had to say:

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic

The real-life Barbie Dream Car is a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible. It’s powered by a supercharged aluminum 6.2-liter V8, capable of delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It boasts a carbon fiber hood with a large vent and a rear spoiler engineered for more downforce.

While the Corvette comes in hot hues like Racing Yellow and Sebring Orange, Barbie Pink isn’t a stock color for the Z06. To get that Malibu Barbie look, the Z06 had to be wrapped. And whether you like the look or not, it’s hard not to admire the high-quality wrap job done on Musgrave’s ride — even the doorjambs were pretty in pink.
