An online shopping app joined the “Barbenheimer” craze by launching a poll on its Facebook page as it suggested fashion choices to Filipinos.

Lazada Philippines on July 17 shared a picture of two fashion looks with the caption: “Are you Team Barbie or Team Oppenheimer?”

It was accompanied by emojis of a pink beating heart for the “Barbie” movie and a black heart for “Oppenheimer.”

The team “Barbie” look featured a girl in an all-pink blouse-and-skirt combo with a pink handbag and white sandals. It was accented with a pendant and a bracelet.

On the other hand, the team “Oppenheimer” look featured a girl in a white blouse with a black blazer, jeans, black fedora hat, and black heels.

“Which movie-inspired look is your vibe?” the shopping app said in its post. It was also accompanied by the hashtag “#SlayWithLazLook.”

The Facebook post has earned 39,000 likes and love reactions so far.

Laz Look” is the shopping app’s in-house curated channel that provides trendy and affordable fashion finds.

It is a feature that prides itself on being specially curated for fashion enthusiasts, claiming to have a wide selection of trendy and affordable stylish items from accessories to dresses, among others.

What is ‘Barbenheimer’?

“Barbenheimer” is a portmanteau that emerged from two diametrically opposed films that shared the same world premiere date — Greta Gerwig’s fantasy-comedy “Barbie” and Christopher Nolan’s epic biographical thriller “Oppenheimer.”

“Barbie” is a live adaptation of the iconic Mattel fashion doll in a pastel-colored world distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

On the other hand, “Oppenheimer” is a Universal Pictures film that dives deep into the psyche of the scientist behind the world-shattering invention of the atomic bomb
