Woman, 63, obsessed with Barbie spends nearly £170,000 turning her house pink

She's a Barbie girl in the Barbie world - and the colour of that world is distinctly pink.

Not only does she have the pink palace and car - this real-life Barbie even comes with a real-life Ken doll.

The iconic doll is now 63 and is still going strong, despite complaints over the years that she pandered to sexist stereotypes.

Now one superfan has shared how their obsession with the doll has influenced every aspect of their life - and made them into an Instagram sensation.

Bruna Barbie, from Curitiba, Paraná in Brazil, who used to work as a lawyer, was first nicknamed Barbie in school and it stuck.

Now the model and influencer, who has a law degree, is making a living simply thanks to loving all things pink.

Following complaints, doll makers Matell now produce versions of Barbie in a wide variety of sizes, colours and shapes - after the original blonde dell was held up for promoting an unrealistic body image.

One researcher even discovered that the plastic doll, standing at 11½ inches tall, would not be able to walk if she was human.

But Bruna insists she doesn’t copy Barbie and instead uses her as inspiration - while her boyfriend, model Dienisson Gemelli, even wears pink with her.

She said: "I have normal expenses she has are normal expenses for anyone. But I don’t try to be Barbie, I’m just hugely inspired by her.

"I also love Elle Woods from Legally Blonde as well as Paris Hilton as she wears a lot of pink.

"My boyfriend loves that I wear the colour pink as he thinks it’s girly and fun - sometimes he even wears it with me.

"Luckily, I don’t face comments from many trolls. In the past, I've been criticised for the fact that I wear pink, but nowadays the critics have diminished, because we live in a world of more diversity.

Bruna shares her day-to-day ‘pink life’ on Instagram - including glimpses into her very pink home.

The influencer says she has been in love with the colour pink since she was a child, and has spent more than £160,000 turning her home completely pink - including the water of her swimming pool.

Her bedroom, appliances, kitchen utensil, bathroom, clothes, glasses, shoes are also bright pink.

Then in 2021, she bought herself a pink car - the exact same Barbie toy car that Barbie creator Mattel released.

She said: "With my successful work as a digital influencer, I started making a lot of money.

"Then I saw the possibility of building a house inspired by Barbie and inspired by my pink style.
