The hot pink and dreamy world of Barbie Land may be the genius of director Greta Gerwig, but actress Margot Robbie manages to bring the film’s glamorous and playful aesthetic to the real world, just as Barbie did. With the help of her stylist Andrew Mukamal, Robbie makes direct references to her Barbie styles on her press tour.
While many of the movie’s style moments reflect the original baby clothes; The press tour offers Robbie the opportunity to showcase the Barbie aesthetic with designer styles. With style moments from Moschino, Prada, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Valentino and many more, Robbie does her part and represents modern Barbie at its best.
The press tour of the Barbie movie features a wearable version of the Barbiecore aesthetic in celebration of the iconic shade of pink we associate with it with the movie. Here we’ve rounded up the best Barbie looks from Margot Robbie’s press tour so far.
Margot Robbie examines the movie-inspired Mattel Barbie dolls; She wears a full look from Versace, a light pink bodice and a bright pink skirt, to meet her baby and promote the movie.
Announcing the film at CinemaCon 2023, Robbie gave the first hint that she would reference her on-screen character with her own wardrobe choices, wearing a pink Prada gingham set and pink Louboutin mules slippers.
Margot’s pink Bottega Veneta skirt and crop top were custom made for the Barbie promotional tour. She paired it with a pink Bottega Veneta handbag, white sunglasses, and mules slippers by Christian Louboutin.
The Wolf Of Wall Street star dived into the archives for this look and donned a metallic pink miniskirt and a pale pink cropped high-neck sweater from Versace’s fall/winter 1994 collection.
Supermodels Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer were featured in the original ad campaign for this collection, and Robbie’s chosen pink look was worn by Christy Turlington. However, her Barbie-inspired look wasn’t just about pink outfits.
The 32-year-old debuted the film on Thursday at Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, while her outfit was an homage to the first Barbie dolls released in 1959.
The first doll was wearing a black and white striped swimsuit, and Robbie reflected the same style with a monochrome striped mini dress with a retro feel.
Later that same day, she appeared in another 1950s inspired mini dress. The graphic strawberry print dress designed by Moschino was complemented by striking white sunglasses.
Proving his commitment to the Barbie theme, Robbie has not only been inspired by Barbie on the red carpet and photo shoots.
Even at Sydney airport, the famous doll Barbie was spotted in a walk-in look: she wore a pale pink tweed jacket and gray trousers from Chanel’s 1996 spring/summer collection, and opted for vintage-style pink Steamline travel bags.
For a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Robbie again drew direct inspiration from the doll. This time she completed Valentino’s pink polka dot mini dress with a yellow handbag and white heels from Manolo Blahnik. This outfit mirrored the outfit worn by a doll from the Pink and Fabulous collection in 2015.
At a press conference in Seoul, Margot was inspired by the “sparkling pink” doll from 1964 in a pink skirt suit embellished with crystal embellishments by Moschino. Her style is completed with a heart-shaped fabric lined bag and a bow hat.
Margot dressed as a 1985 “day to night” doll and wore a specially designed pink power suit by Versace. She completed the look with a glowing phone and a white fedora hat.
The 1985 “day to night” doll would do a shimmering pink outfit change for the evening. In reference to the original dress, Robbie and her stylist Andrew Mukamal worked with Versace to create a crystal bodice top and a bright pink crinoline skirt.
