The movie is certainly garnering positive attention, but Lipa’s fans weren’t happy with the outfit and styling of their favorite star in the $100 million movie.

Fans of Dua Lipa flooded social media with their opinions on the first-look poster of the singer in the Barbie movie. Many think that the blue hair of the actress looks cheap, plasticky, and garish. It’s something that isn’t expected from a movie that has a budget of $100 million. Others accused the production team of giving her a tacky outfit that left a lot to be desired and also alleged she wasn’t styled with the care that the other actors were.

However, not everyone agrees with these opinions. Many think that her cheap-looking blue hair is perfect for a film set in an all-too-perfect and fake-looking world. Others speculated that Lipa’s hair and outfit reminded one of the kinds of materials used to make the actual Barbie dolls and that was the goal of the film- to make things look artificial. We will know more about the pop singer’s role in the movie when it premieres.

Barbie will be released on July 21, 2023.
