Every Time Margot Robbie Flawlessly Nailed a Barbie Doll Outfit (PHOTOS)


There’s no denying that Margot Robbie — and her stylist Andrew Mukamal — are completely devoted to the Barbie bit, making fans all over the world go wild every time she steps onto a red carpet. As the titular character in the July 21 Barbie movie, 33-year-old Robbie has stepped out in a number of hot pink outfits fit for the Mattel doll.

Taking it a step further, though, Robbie and Mukamal have crafted a press tour wardrobe that is so utterly perfect, it was actually ripped from the closet of Barbie’s Malibu DreamHouse itself.

As Robbie herself told PEOPLE at the film’s L.A. premiere, “We’re finding Barbie references from decades past and just doing it really for the big Barbie fans out there, people who are actually collecting those Barbies. We’re hoping to get them excited. We’re pairing Barbie references with great designers.”

Here is every single time Robbie has dressed in a Barbie doll outfit while promoting her film — completely with side-by-side photos of the dolls Mukamal used as inspiration.

Pink & Fabulous Barbie — 2015

Stylist Andrew Mukamal started strong with the June 25 photocall in Los Angeles. He dressed Margot Robbie in a pink and white polka-dot Valentino mini dress with a crisscross neckline reminiscent of a Pink & Fabulous Barbie from 2015. This Barbie also wore a pink and white polka-dot look. Robbie even wore the same bright yellow bag as her doll counterpart.

The Original Barbie — 1959

There was no way Margot Robbie would be able to make it through this press tour without dressing as the Original barbie, circa 1959. She did just that in Sydney. To channel Barbie’s black-and-white-stripped bathing suit, Robbie wore a black-and-white-stripped Herve Leger bandage dress and the perfect white cat-eye sunglasses.

Margot Robbie stepped out in South Korea ready to show off two looks in one with Day to Night Barbie from 1985. She showcased the Barbie’s first look in her daytime gear: a hot pink Versace skirt suit with a pink and white hat and pink handbag. She truly threw it back to the ’80s, though, with her rhinestone phone!

For her nighttime portion of Day to Night Barbie, Margot Robbie stepped into another Versace look, this one a tulle skirted confection with a shimmery beaded bodice. She wore matching pink heels and carried a matching pink bag.

Sparkling Pink Barbie — 1964

While still in South Korea, Margot Robbie went back to the 1960s and channeled Sparkling Pink Barbie. She dressed in a retro-feeling Moschino look reminiscent of the Barbie from 1964, though Robbie’s look was decidedly more bright and sexy. She completed her look with a heart-shaped bag and fascinator.

In Mexico City on July 6 and 7, Robbie had two more Barbie moments. Her first, a hot pink creation for a fan event, channeled 1992’s Earring Magic Barbie right down to the cosmic charms on her earrings and belt. Mukamal credited the designer as Balmain and hairstylist Bryce Scarlett gave her voluminous waves to match the vibe.

She channeled the same era at the second Mexico City appearance, even crimping her hair to match the aesthetic of 1992’s Totally Hair Barbie. She finished her fun hairstyle and spot-on Pucci dress with bold pink Chanel logo earrings.

The first evening dress designed for the Barbie doll, this sparkling, body-hugging number is such an iconic Barbie look that the brand re-released it as part of a set to commemorate the toy’s 50th anniversary in 2009.

For the film’s L.A. premiere on July 9, Mukamal commissioned Schiaparelli to reproduce it down to the rosette and chiffon scarf (watch the look being created here) and Lorraine Schwartz contributed hundreds of carats of diamonds to complete the look. Manolo Blahnik contributed the mules that have been a staple of Barbie’s style and Robbie’s press tour.

Only Barbie’s best black tie would do for the film’s ultra-glam London premiere on July 12. Mukamal worked with Vivienne Westwood to create a take on the Enchanted Evening Barbie (first released in 1960 and reproduced in 1996).

The pale pink gown with a rosette at the hip was finished with a white stole, three strands of pearls (by Assael) and sparkly Christian Louboutin mules, all inspired by the pint-size original outfit.

Margot’s second look for the London festivities was related to the first: Brunette Bubble Cut Barbie, who (as Mukamal posted on his stories) was boxed up with both a red bodysuit and heels and the Enchanted Evening attire for the 50th anniversary edition.

For his take on the ensemble, Mukamal commissioned a scorching hot Dilara Findikoglu mini, worn with Maison Ernest heels.

Following the SAG-AFTRA strike, Robbie returned to doing press for Barbie — and that meant the Barbie outfits returned too. For Deadline Contenders Film: Los Angeles, Robbie channeled Cherry Pie Picnic Barbie from 2015. Mukamal dressed her in a Bottega Veneta look, which consisted of jeans and a white button-up shirt tied at the waist. Robbie wore little red peep-toe heels and carried a cherry-red bag.
