DNach einigen Jahren Pause hat Mattel 2021 der Barbie Look Serie neues Leben eingehaucht. Die Reihe heißt jetzt Barbies Looks (mit s), die Models sind von #1 bis #6 durchnumeriert und haben alle ein neues oder modifiziertes Facemold und Made to Move Körper. Wie Mattel auf der Verpackung schreibt: „Each is ready to style, pose, photograph and post. Barbie hat also das Social Media entdeckt.

Die vier Barbies der ersten Edition entsprechen den typischen Mattel Ethnien: caucasian, hispanic, asian, african. Die beiden Männer sind wie gewohnt (Ken & Steven) hell und dunkelhäutig – caucasian und african.

Ende 2021 folgte eine zweite Wave (2.1) unter dem Titel „Metallic“, sie umfasste zwei weibliche und ein männliches Model. Im Juni 2022 kam die Fortsetzung des Metallic Themas  (Wave 2.2), diesmal mit drei weiblichen Models, heraus.
