Margot Robbie has worn one showstopping look after another while promoting “Barbie.”
The actor’s earliest pink outfit and her red, after-party minidress weren’t her strongest.
But her most recent ensembles inspired by Barbie dolls helped her shine on the red carpet.
Before the “Barbie” press tour ended due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Margot Robbie wore a pink ensemble that was a bit too bold for the classic character.
She attended a press event in London, England, wearing a Vivienne Westwood ensemble consisting of a miniskirt and structured, balloon-sleeve jacket.
Although the outfit was fun and fashionable, the two-piece set — as well as her fur-covered heels — didn’t exactly match the doll’s classic aesthetic.
The vibrant minidress Robbie wore to a London red-carpet event was more bombshell than Barbie.
Robbie looked stunning in the custom-made Dilara Findikoglu minidress, which her stylist said was inspired by a red swimsuit worn by a 1962 doll.
She also wore a strapless, corseted look with slide-on sandals that looked a lot like Barbie’s famous shoes.
However, the striking red color would have worked better while promoting a different film, and the dress inspiration wasn’t super clear without seeing photos of the doll.
The “Barbie” star’s first promotional outfit needed more fun accessories.
Before kicking off her “Barbie” promo tour, Robbie attended CinemaCon in April while wearing a plaid, two-piece set from Prada.
The pink outfit included a wrapped miniskirt and matching bralette with thick straps. She wore the set with pink Christian Louboutin mules and a Chanel anklet.
The outfit was a good starting point for the actor’s “Barbie” fashion, but it could still benefit from a fun hairstyle, brighter makeup, or doll-like accessories.
Similarly, Robbie sparkled at a “Barbie” party in Australia — but her outfit was missing something.
No Barbie doll is complete without some jewelry, a mini purse, or other accessories. Robbie, however, seemed to be missing the final touch of her outfit.
Still, her mesh minidress — a vintage, corseted piece from Versace — was perfect for a party, and its baby-pink color perfectly matched old-school Barbie dolls.
A few days earlier, however, she nailed Barbie’s summer style.
She wore a custom Valentino minidress with a halter-neck body that was wrapped around her chest, and she carried a yellow handbag to add a pop of color.
The beach-ready look also includes white pumps, a popular shoe style among Barbie dolls.
Robbie then blended his own style with Barbie’s for a fun outfit at an Australian press event.
She wore a pink turtleneck top with a metallic miniskirt, both from Versace’s 1994 collection.
The actor also donned white sunglasses, purple socks, and heeled loafers, creating a look that was stylish, playful, and perfectly represented her on-screen character.
She wore a deeper shade of pink for a “Barbie” event in Mexico earlier this month, and paid off.
Robbie’s vibrant Balmain ensemble included a mesh, long-sleeved top underneath a leather minidress and pointed pink pumps.
But the real stars of her outfit were her accessories. She wore silver hoop earrings with stars and hearts dangling from them, and a chain belt with a bedazzled star charm.
The fun really started when Robbie began wearing designer versions of actual Barbie doll outfits.
Robbie looked exactly like a vintage Barbie when she stepped onto a red carpet in South Korea while wearing a pink Versace gown with a sparkling, spaghetti-strap top and tulle skirt.
She was also presented with a traditional, custom hanbok that matched the designer dress.
But before she wore the fluffy dress, Robbie wore a Barbie-inspired look that was even better.
Her original outfit — another custom Versace design — included a pink pencil skirt, matching blazer, mesh scarf, and white hat with a pink, polka-dot ribbon.
The outfit looked exactly like the one worn by the 1985 Day to Night Barbie, whose outfit was reversible and turned into a version of the second dress worn by Robbie.
The next day, Robbie wore another standout outfit complete with a heart-shaped purse.
Moschino is one of the most fitting brands Robbie could have worn during his “Barbie” press tour, and this look proves it.
The outfit included a bedazzled crop top, sparkling miniskirt, and short jacket, all of which matched her bow-adorned cap and quilted purse.
The actor looked like a 1960s Barbie when she stepped onto the pink carpet at the London premiere.
She wore a custom Vivienne Westwood gown crafted from pink silk. It had a corseted body, a column skirt, and a rose embellishment with a long train attached. She also wore a white fur shawl briefly on the red carpet.
The outfit was inspired by one worn by “Enchanted Evening” Barbie, a doll that was released in 1960.
Robbie can pull off any Barbie-inspired look, but she really rocks ’90s style.
At an event in Mexico, for example, she wore a colorful, printed minidress from Pucci and crimped hair that made her look just like the Totally Hair doll from 1992.
Fans of Barbie and Robbie alike can agree that her Los Angeles premiere outfit was the perfect choice for the event.
One of the most famous, classic Barbies is the 1961 Solo in the Spotlight doll. So it makes sense that Robbie would copy her sparkling, strapless dress with a tulle lining for one of her biggest promotional events.
Schiaparelli designed the sport, which also included a red flower on the skirt, black gloves, and a pink scarf that Robbie carried.
