The limited-edition Moschino Barbie is a raggedy wreck (see: those fishnet biker shorts and 90s brick ass cellphone), but the fauxhawk-having little boy in its ad sells it with a wink and a “sooo fierce.” The $180 Moschino Barbie is sold out in less than an hour and Moschino and Mattel owe it all to the star of its ad!
The little star of this homage to the Barbie commercials of the 90s looks a lot like Moschino’s creative director, Jeremy Scott. They both have that fierce cockatoo hair. The New York Post claims that this is the first time in the history of everything that a boy has been in a Barbie commercial. If that is a fact, then my 6-year-old self, who stole all of my sister’s Barbies, is beyond jealous. I would’ve sold my entire family to the mafia in order to say the words, “Peaches and Cream Barbie is SO elegant,” in a Barbie commercial.
