Kim Lim Goes Full Barbiecore for Her Kandy Karnival Birthday Bash
On her moodboard, Chng pinned a photo of Japanese-American model Devon Aoki, whose baby face belied her character’s fearless attitude in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Also referenced: a Steven Meisel photograph of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Carla Bruni in Chanel skirt suits, and Megan Fox in Jennifer’s Body. Everyone is in pink, of course.
Those inspirations translated into Lim’s coordinated outfit: a blush pink cut-out top, matched with a strappy miniskirt from Superdown. Following the rules of tonal dressing, Lim also opted for a pair of chalk-coloured boots from homegrown fashion label Charles & Keith. The cherry on top was a shearling pink Chanel bag from the pre-fall 2022 collection, pulled from Chng’s closet.
In short, Lim’s outfit ticked all the boxes of what Gen Zs—and, consequently, celebrities—wear today.
“I spent a lot of time on TikTok doing research for [BeastCorp] the digital agency I work in and I wanted her to look like one of the girls on the app, repping hyper-femininity over the ‘girlboss’ look,” explained Chng.
