The subtle way the Barbie movie took a page out of Princess Catherine's style book - and you can too

Hint: both Barbie and Princess Catherine love this jewellery brand

Wait - how did Barbie copy the Princess of Wales in the newly released Barbie movie? The nod to Catherine is subtle. 

There are lots of female icons out in the world who inspire our fashion choices - and it turns out that two of our biggest style inspirations, Barbie and Princess Catherine, might just have inspired each other. 

In case you missed it, the highly anticipated Barbie movie came out in theatres on July 21, making about $70.8 million at the box office on opening day alone. Since there's so much hubbub around this plastic and fantastic film, we've been keeping our eyes peeled for fashion inspiration from the movie, as well as fan reactions, and more - and in our research, we noticed one small detail about one of Barbie's outfits that may just have been inspired by Princess Kate.

And no, it's not Kate dressing in Barbiecore - but we love that vibe for her too.

In the movie, there's a scene in which Barbie wears a beautiful heart necklace from Missoma - which just so happens to be a jewellery brand Princess Kate loves. 

The future Queen Consort has been photographed in numerous pieces from Missoma, including the gorgeous Mini Pyramid Charm Hoop Earrings.

The specific necklace Margot Robbie sports in the movie is the Ridge Heart Charm Necklace, worn at arguably the most emotional part in the film. Don't worry, no spoilers here. 

This actually isn't the only Missoma appearance in the Barbie film, though - apparently, costume designer Jacqueline Durran knows which jewellery brands the most fashionable women are wearing these days, and incorporated the brand into the movie multiple times. 

In addition to Margot Robbie's heart necklace, the you can see the Jelly Heart Gemstone Charm Necklace worn by Alexandra Shipp (another Barbie), and the Double Bobble Chain Necklace worn by America Ferrara.

As for Kate, who is certainly a Barbie in her own right, Missoma is an essential brand in the Princess' jewelry arsenal. From her healing gemstone necklace from Missoma to her 18 ct gold drop earrings, and every item in between, the Princess has been seen time and time again wearing this go-to jewelry brand.

Not shockingly, though, Kate isn't the only A-lister who has caught on to the Missoma hype - even Helen Mirren has rocked a pair of Missoma earrings this year, making the brand truly a go-to for women around the world. And, what's more, Helen Mirren also has a starring role in the Barbie movie, but like we said, we're not giving anything away.

Although Margot's exact necklace from the movie is sold out, the other Missoma pieces from the Barbie movie are luckily still available.



This retro-inspired necklace features five jelly heart gemstone charms set on a chunky curb chain, helping to give you Barbie vibes wherever you go.
