Wondering why you can’t find pink paint?
Barbie’s movie set may be able to lend you a paint can, or two.
According to Architectural Digest, Barbie’s movie set was covered from head to toe in pink paint to pay homage to the doll’s iconic color.
In a written email from Director Greta Gerwig to Architectural Digest, Gerwig had hired production designer Sarah Greenwood and set decorator Katie Spencer to design Barbie’s dream house.
Gerwig also insisted that everything on set, must be colored pink.
“I wanted the pinks to be very bright, and everything to be almost too much,” Greta Gerwig explained.Greta Gerwig
However, coloring nearly the entire set in pink caused an international shortage of the fluorescent shade of Rosco paint.
Can you believe it?
“The world ran out of pink,” she told Architectural Digest.Greta Gerwig
Gerwig also mentioned to AD that even the sky backdrop including the mountains were hand-painted too.
Barbie, the movie, releases in theatres next month on July 21!
So who else wants decorated their room with this much pink?
