It's not giving... Sorisha Naidoo's Barbie outfit receives mixed reactions

The 'Real Housewives of Durban' star dressed up as an '80s Workout Barbie', but it seems the look was not glam enough for some. 

Barbie fever has taken over the world and there is no escaping the hype!

South African businesswoman Sorisha Naidoo is the latest celebrity to channel her inner Barbie girl. The reality star wore an 80s workout Barbie outfit to a screening of the 'Barbie' movie.  

Sorisha completed her "workout Barbie" look by carrying two pink dumbbells.

"Yesssss!! Thank you for coming with me," her 'Real Housewives of Durban' co-star Annie Mthembu wrote.

Sorisha's workout Barbie outfit drew mixed reactions from her social media followers. 

"It's not giving, your stylist should be fired," one Instagram user wrote. Another added: "Let me be your stylist, I can do better than that." 

But several people came to Sorisha's defence, reminding her naysayers that the look is inspired by a Barbie doll wearing a similar fitness outfit.  

"If y’all negative dom kops would go through the [second to] last frame, you’d see the Barrie look she went for," one fan commented.

But Sorisha was unfazed by the negative comments. She simply got dolled up again for her next big event - the Simon Mabhunu Sabela KZN Film and Television Awards.

She wore a gorgeous off-the-shoulder dress from The XVIII Victoria. Unlike her Barbie outfit, this look was a clear winner. 

"Now this is a dress!" one Instagram user commented. Another added: "This is the Sori we know."

TV presenter Minnie Dlamini wrote: "Queen [flame emoji]."

"My babe & husband, @vivian.reddy.94 our right hand and left too @brianmpono and THEE Designer @xviii_victorian," she captioned a picture with Vivian. 

Sorisha's look silenced all her haters!
