Is life in plastic actually fantastic? Anna Dello Russo seems to think so. Her latest Vogue Japan spread pays homage to Barbie, with a spot-on impersonation from model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

With Rosie dressed in signature pink and stiffly posed, the Anna Dello Russo–styled shoot nails Barbie’s iconic look. Rosie even has the vacant stare and frozen smile down pat – which is pretty comical, if not slightly unsettling. And in case you were wondering, yes, Ken makes an appearance too.

Now, this isn’t the only recent high-fashion venture from the doll. The Moschino Spring 2015 collection brought the look to life, with several pieces showcased in this shoot. I’d sure like to add one of those cheeky purses to my Barbie collection.

Get Ready: To be shocked. Anna Dello Russo was caught wearing sneakers. We repeat: SNEAKERS. And here we thought she slept in heels.

Know: Raf Simons is dabbling in costume design (for the second time), designing clothes for Sigourney Weaver’s character in the upcoming Luca Guadagnino film, Body Art. How awesome would it be if he bedazzled her lips like the models in his Spring 2013 Paris runway show?

Test: Your fashion IQ. After taking this exam, we like to think of ourselves as a sort of style genius. Take that, SAT scores.

Check Out: Miuccia Prada’s costume sketches for The Great Gatsby. May can’t come soon enough.
