Barbie-core’s chokehold on the fashion world is only going to get more intense as we count down to the movie’s global premiere on 20 July. That’s right, director Greta Gerwig’s masterpiece is finally here, and the star-studded cast has been serving some looks with major BBE – Big Barbie Energy. Of course, leading the charge is the blonde bombshell herself, Margot Robbie, rocking all-pink ensembles while promoting the movie around the world.
With a little over a week left to the release, the only question that remains is: what will we wear? Below, BAZAAR breaks down some Barbie-forward ‘fit ideas inspired by none other than Robbie herself – check ‘em out below.
When we think of Barbie, our minds jump straight to voluminous tutus made with yards of tulle –whimsical, feminine and extra. Take Robbie’s lead and add some sparkle with a bejewelled handbag and leather mules.
A pink halter dress is quintessential Barbie, but the doll is always on the lookout for trends to elevate her wardrobe and a little cutout never hurts. Complete the look with a pair of white slingbacks, a vibrant yellow shoulder bag and a stunning gold bracelet.
Is there anything Barbie can’t pull off? Robbie stepped out at the Mexico premiere in a swirl-printed dress that was a direct nod to the 1992 “Totally Hair” Barbie disco-esque dress. Go bold with candy-like jewellery and a bubblegum pink bag to top off the look.
Barbie’s closet is massive, and she doesn’t always gravitate to dresses. Sometimes a casual knitted sweater does the trick even when the sun is blazing down – just throw on a pair of cool sunglasses to counter those rays.
