Raquelle Harper, also simply known as Raquelle, is an on and off antagonist turned supporting character in the Barbie franchise. She liked to be mean to Barbie and her friends and try to get Ken to notice her.
She usually has brown eyes with black hair, and is depicted as Asian when she plays Asian characters. (However, in some dolls and pictures of Ryan, she is seen with brown hair) She is often jealous and spiteful. In The Barbie Diaries, she was the most popular girl in school and adored by everyone. In Barbie: A Fairy Secret, she was rude to Barbie at first but in the end, they became friends because Raquelle apologized and explained she was just jealous. In Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale, Raquelle (successfully) attempted to break Ken and Barbie up. She is thought of as evil by others.
In Trapped in the Dreamhouse, Raquelle banged on the Dreamhouse door, yelling 'I want to go stop Barbie and feel good about myself for once in my life!!'.
Raquelle is not currently in a relationship, but does have a crush on Ken, seen in many Life in the Dreamhouse episodes, such as Playing Heart to Get and Stuck with You. In 2006, in The Barbie Diaries, Raquelle was going out with Todd.
The Barbie Diaries
Raquelle is the girlfriend of a football player named Todd, who Barbie has a crush on. In the 5th grade, she used to be best friends with Barbie, but once she became more popular, she began bullying Barbie along with her friends Regen and Dawn. Raquelle is the news anchor for the school news channel and tries to make Barbie do silly errands for her in order to make her miserable. Her specific targeting of Barbie implies that she might be jealous of Barbie's good nature and beauty. Raquelle has strawberry blonde hair with full bangs, green eyes and light skin.
Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale
Raquelle briefly appeared in this film. As she was rehearsing her movie scripts with Ken, she recorded his lines so she could practice while she was alone. Ken thought she would play it on the school speakers, which embarrassed him, and he thought he sounded like a dork. Raquelle convinced him to let her record his lines.
As "a joke", Raquelle sent Barbie a recording of some of the lines, where Ken breaks up with someone. Her excuse was that she didn't really think Barbie would take it seriously, but Barbie got upset and wanted to get away, so she went to Paris to visit her aunt. Ken decides to go meet up with her, and leaves Raquelle.
Barbie's friends, Grace and Teresa, look as if they are about to shout at Raquelle, but it seems her relationship with Ken is fine as they are friends in the following film.

However, because of Raquelle's help, they eventually snapped Graciella back to normal. Graciella tells Barbie and Raquelle that their wings will disappear when they return to the human world but re-appear when they came back, and promise to keep it a secret.
But Raquelle doesn't promise to keep Gloss Angeles a secret so the fairies throw sleeping dust on them. The next morning, Barbie, Raquelle and Ken woke up, thinking it all as a dream.
