Margot Robbie Stuns as Barbie in Seoul: Embracing the Iconic Doll’s Fashion with Two Mattel-Inspired Outfits.
During the press tour for “Barbie,” Margot Robbie has captivated audiences with her character-inspired ensembles. At the Seoul premiere on Sunday, she took it to the next level, showcasing not just one, but two fashion moments inspired by the beloved toy.
Drawing inspiration from the iconic 1985 Day-to-Night Barbie, the Australian actress graced the red carpet in a striking hot pink skirt suit paired with a tie-neck top reminiscent of the doll’s bold office attire. Every detail was meticulously coordinated, from her cap-toed pointy pumps to her white ribbon-wrapped hat, perfectly mirroring the plastic toy’s style. Adding a touch of glamour, Robbie carried a crystal-covered Judith Leiber Couture clutch shaped like an old-school cell phone.
Later in the event, she unveiled her “night” look, donning a tulle-skirted cocktail dress featuring an embellished bustier-style bodice in the same eye-catching pink hue.
Working closely with stylist Andrew Mukamal, Versace played a key role in recreating the Day-to-Night doll’s iconic looks for Robbie.
The iconic Barbie look
While these custom outfits are not available for purchase, fans can still find the original toy on eBay, eliciting nostalgic responses from celebrities like Olivia Munn and Karla Welch, who reminisced about their fond memories with the classic Barbie.
Robbie’s attention to detail was extraordinary, evoking memories of the reversible skirt, business card, and credit card that came with the vintage doll. One can only wonder if she stashed the latter two in her bedazzled phone bag.
The highly anticipated film “Barbie” will finally hit theaters on July 21.
