Trends may come and go, but one thing is for certain—an Hermès Birkin handbag never goes out of style.

Who’s That Girl: Introducing the New Barbie “Fashionistas” Lineup

origBarbie has been a style icon for nearly six decades, but just when you thought you knew her, she’s seriously switched things up. Mattel’s latest iterations of the beloved doll — AKA the 23-strong Barbie Fashionistas line — serve up a refreshing dose of diversity, from the new variations in skin tone (eight, to be exact) and hair (signature blonde and way beyond) to the snazzy footwear developments (at long last, flats!).

And the outfits? Obviously, Barbie’s got those covered: Each Fashionista doll comes decked out in a perfectly of-the-moment look — think sporty graphic tees and print-splashed rompers — complete with knockout statement jewelry and a trendy handbag.

Get to know four of the dolls (and their signature style) below, then shop our assortment, stocked with Barbie Fashionistas dolls, inspired outfits for real girls, and lots of constantly coveted toys, from Dreamhouses to hot pink convertibles.
