Though we’re used to seeing Margot Robbie grace the red carpet in chic Chanel Haute Couture gowns, recently every photo of the Oscar-nominated Australian actress has shown her donning quite the opposite. In hot pink tuxedos that wouldn’t be amiss at a Harry Styles concert and wearing fluorescent spandex while rollerblading up and down Venice Beach boardwalk, Robbie has been a Barbie girl living in a Barbie world — and the internet is loving every moment of it.
Robbie’s transformation — and the very camp outfits she’s been sporting — have been enough to get even the biggest sceptics excited about Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film, which stars Ryan Gosling as Ken alongside a slew of other famous faces, and is set for release July 2023. But despite how much she suits life in plastic, it doesn’t look like Robbie has adopted much of Barbie’s iconic hot pink attire into her real-world wardrobe just yet.
In new photos from set, Robbie was pictured out of character, in her normal, everyday uniform, which is, naturally, very chic and refreshingly still consists of all Australian labels.
From her statement pair of Poppy Lissiman eyewear – which Kylie Jenner also gave the tick of approval a few weeks ago – to her Hansen & Gretel grey blazer (paired with an on-trend simple white tank top) and jeans by Abrand, Robbie proves that even when you have access to the biggest fashion houses in the world quite literally at your fingertips, Australian fashion is second to none.
In one subtle and easy-to-miss ode to her character, Robbie was donning some pink on her outfit in the form of the baby pink Birkenstock sandals she was wearing on her feet. Next, we just need to see Barbie – or Robbie, same difference — in a hot pink Balenciaga le cagole. A girl can dream.
