Barbie, Greta Gerwig’s upcoming directorial venture has created quite an uproar in the past week after the release of its latest teaser trailer. People are marveling at the cinematography and vibrant colors which brings Barbie Land to life but it seems everyone is smitten by one particular scene from the clip. Hoards of fans have been constantly posting on social media about Barbie’s feet staying with her heels elevated even after stepping off the pink stilettos. It’s a nod to the actual Barbie dolls which are manufactured with their toes pointed and their feets not staying flat.

Many of the scenes from the trailer have sent the internet into a frenzy. But none has gone quite as viral as Barbie’s iconic slanted feet while she steps out of her heels. Among the crowd of awestruck fans is Chrissy Teigen, who is obsessed with Barbie’s feet as well. The American model and television personality wrote about her curiosity and amazement regarding the scene on Twitter. She enquired about everything regarding that now-iconic shot right down to asking about the one who did Barbie’s pedicure. The tweet read: "I need to know everything about this shot. How many takes, if she held onto something, was she harnessed? Is the landing mark sticky, are they her feet, who did the pedicure? Really just a documentary on this shot."

Teigen isn’t the only one captivated by Barbie’s feet but plenty of netizens have noted that the viral scene has delighted the foot fetish community as well. Amidst all the praises, the film has also faced some negative criticism regarding Ryan Gosling's casting as Ken. Some netizens are displeased the film chose to cast an actor in his 40s as the picture-perfect Ken doll.

According to Cinemablend, this isn't the first time Robbie's feet have been getting overwhelming attention. While portraying Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad, the actress performed a crazy stunt with her feet during the interrogation sequence where she had to undo the locks on her hands by retrieving the keys with her feet from a bad guy. Since her face was partially visible in that scene, we aren’t sure if Robbie was replaced by a stunt performer or not. People have raised speculations regarding whose feet were featured in the Barbie teaser as well. Some doubt that the film might have hired a foot model to do the job whereas others believe that Robbie herself is the one putting her feet on display in that particular scene. The argument about Barbie's feet being made to look aesthetically pleasing with CGI can't be dismissed entirely either.

We doubt if we are ever getting an actual documentary about Barbie's slanted feet but we can certainly catch Barbie in the theaters on July 21, 2023 (when it releases). Until then, we can at least hope to find the answers to Teigen's curious tweet in behind-the-scene footage which will possibly get released after the film.
