Margot Robbie has channeled many iconic Barbie-inspired looks during the global press tour for her upcoming film.
Before the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists strike began on July 14, 2023, Robbie paid tribute to many famous Mattel dolls from the past while on the "Barbie" press tour to promote the film. For inspiration, Robbie replicated vintage looks pulled from the fashion archives.
For the European premiere of "Barbie" in London earlier this month, Robbie transformed into the 1960s Enchanted Evening Barbie doll.
To channel the vintage doll, she wore a custom look from Vivienne Westwood.
Following the premiere, she switched into another look from Turkish-British designer Dilara Findikoglu, which referenced a red swimsuit-wearing Barbie from 1962.
With the help of her stylist Andrew Mukamal, Robbie's "Barbie" style has included references to everything from pieces different dolls have worn over the years to runway looks inspired by the famous brand.
At the film's world premiere in Los Angeles on July 9, Robbie channeled the Solo in the Spotlight '60s Barbie when she wore a black sequined Schiaparelli dress.
At the South Korean premiere of "Barbie" in Seoul on July 2, Robbie channeled the Day to Night Barbie from 1985 in a Versace look.
Mukamal also shared another look from the same event that paid homage to the same Barbie.
During a photo call on June 29 in Sydney, Australia, the actress wore a black and white striped mini dress -- a nod to the first Barbie doll ever released. That famous doll, released in 1959, was dressed in a black and white striped swimsuit with white sunglasses.
Hervé Léger, the designer of Robbie's dress, shared a sketch of the inspired design on social media, captioning it, "It’s Barbie's world, we just live in it."
When Robbie first arrived in Australia last month, she was spotted in a runway look that showed she's fully embracing the "Barbiecore" trend during the press tour.
For her airport look, the actress donned a Chanel Spring/Summer 1996 look that included a tweed pink blazer paired with jeans and slingback heels.
Robbie showed off another on-trend style while attending a press event in Los Angeles, wearing a custom pink polka-dot minidress from Valentino.
Mukamal shared in an Instagram post that the inspiration for the outfit was a doll from Barbie's "Pink & Fabulous" collection, released in 2015.
To celebrate the first day of the "Barbie" press tour, the film's official account shared a post of Robbie grinning in the back of her pink convertible. She wore a pink matching set from Bottega Veneta.
Ahead of the press tour, one of the first Barbie-inspired looks Robbie debuted was in April, at CinemaCon 2023 in Las Vegas.
For the Warner Bros. Pictures Studio presentation, the actress wore a pink gingham bralette top with a matching miniskirt from Prada.
"Barbie" is in theaters now.
