If you're a dedicated Who What Wear fan, you'll remember when we coined the phrase "Barbie feet" to describe the popular Instagram pose where you point your feet for photos as if you're wearing heels. The elongating pose is usually done when you're barefoot or wearing flats, but Kylie Jenner just gave us a completely different take on the phrase when she wore shoes that are basically life-size versions of Barbie's plastic heels. 

On Instagram Stories, Jenner shared a photo of Barbie-pink heels that Balenciaga gifted her, complete with a note that explains how the shoes were 3D-printed using innovative technology and "flexible, wearable rubber." Mind-blowing. Will 3D printing have a big future in fashion? Only time will tell. Scroll down to see the Balenciaga rubber heels and to shop the hot-pink shoe trend.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
