Margot Robbie’s press tour for Barbie was a masterclass in method dressing, and she delivered countless amazing red carpet looks along the way. Many of them recreated some of the iconic retro looks from Barbie’s past and we’re bringing you five of the very best.

Sydney Press Event

Robbie set high expectations with one of her early press tour looks in Sydney, and she knocked us off our feet with this black and white Hervé Léger dress, which paid homage to the first-ever Barbie from 1959.

Seoul Press Event

Robbie showed the world that the Barbie press tour is going to be fire in Seoul. She stepped out in not one, but two amazing pink Versace looks, inspired by the Day to Night Barbie from 1985.

Mexico Press Event

Robbie joined forces with Balmain to pay homage to the Earring Magic Barbie from 1992 and they did a fantastic job recreating this retro look.

LA World Premiere

After wearing a series of show-stopping pink outfits, Robbie decided to switch the gears for the world premiere. She hit the red carpet in a stunning Schiaparelli gown that replicated Solo in the Spotlight Barbie from 1960, down to the pink scarf in her hand.

London Premiere

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, Robbie pulled all the stops in London and hit the red carpet in a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood gown with a trimmed neckline and pearly choker, channeling Enchanted Evening Barbie from the ’60s.
