After months of anticipation, the first trailer for Greta Grewig’s Barbie film hit the internet on Friday, and it’s a technicolored visual treat.
A little over one-minute long, the teaser clip opens with a playful homage to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. In it, Margot Robbie, who stars as the historic doll, stands as tall as a skyscraper on a sandy landscape amidst young girls playing with baby dolls. A bit of fashion history: Robbie wears the same shoulderless black-and-white striped swimsuit as the very first Barbie doll, released in 1959.
There are feverish glimpses at some of the other colorful costumes on display. Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken, wears a fringe leather vest paired with fingerless leather gloves. Perhaps it is an ode to the chaps-wearing Harley Davidson Ken. Either way, the shirtless look shows off the character’s iconic washboard abs. A beat later, Issa Rae, star and creator of Insecure, appears as a thoroughly modern version of “President Barbie” with her hot-pink jumpsuit and sash. And Marvel star Simu Lu becomes a dancing Ken, donning a Bob Fosse-leaning all-black get-up with pink socks.
The campy costume design of Barbie, led by Jacqueline Durran, has already created plenty of conversation.When on-set photos of Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie donning colorful, 80s-flavored roller skating outfits leaked earlier this year, fans couldn’t get enough. Other conversation-sparking looks include Ken’s Canadian tuxedo and Barbie’s sparkly Western wear. Barbiecore, anyone?
If the swelling pre-release buzz is anything to go by, Barbie is sure to be a fashion gem when it hits theaters on July 21 next year. Start stockpiling your hot pink now.

If you’ve been checking the digital clock on your cell phone for the last few years, then Margot Robbie wants you to reevaluate that choice. The Australian actress-producer heads to the small screen in new ads celebrating Chanel’s iconic timepiece, the J12, which turned 20 last year. “My watch allows me to step away from technology and remain truly present in the moment,” shared Robbie via email. “The busier I am, the faster time seems to move. I have always made myself busy—at ten years old, at 20 years old—but now, at 30, I am trying to focus on busying myself with the things I truly want to spend time on. If it’s something I truly wanted to do, then it never feels like a minute wasted, just time well spent.”
At present, Robbie is managing her time around LuckyChap Entertainment, the production company she founded with husband Tom Ackerley and partners Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr in 2014. The team has experienced a banner year with hits like the Oscar-winning Promising Young Woman and comic book blockbuster Birds of Prey. “In this industry, particularly as a producer, it feels like time is never on your side. But I have seen the most incredible things created under the pressure of not having enough time,” says Robbie. “It certainly pushes us to do things that we may not have had the courage to do if time were infinite.”
In her new role as the face of J12, she shares the spotlight with fellow Chanel ambassadors Ali McGraw, Carole Bouquet, Naomi Campbell, and Claudia Schiffer. “It feels incredibly special to be alongside such inspiring women in this campaign,” says Robbie. The fact that she was already a fan of the watch didn’t hurt either. “I feel like I can wear it anywhere,” explains Robbie whose own personal style is similarly understated and elegant.
After two decades working in the film industry, Robbie truly understands what it means to come into your own in Hollywood. “[20 years] means you have established yourself a career built on more than what you have to offer on the surface,” she says. “It means you have proven you have talent, good taste, good instincts, you work hard and have thick skin.” For some, stepping into a new decade comes with anxieties, but Robbie has no fears about getting older. “I often ask people what has been their favorite age to be in their life. The only people who ever say their 20’s are people who are still in their 20’s,” she says, referencing French philosopher Paul Nizan’s famous quote. “I think that infinite possibilities should be considered at any age. We should never stop dreaming big.”

Oscars 2021 Red Carpet: The Best Dresses From The Night

Oscars 2021 Red Carpet: The Best Dresses From The Night

The Oscars is the closest we’re getting to a traditional ceremony in the 2021 awards season. The entertainment industry’s biggest night of the year took place in Hollywood, as usual, but organizers also established hubs in London and Paris to give proceedings an international flavor – and avoid the anti-climax (and potential technical nightmare) that is the Zoom acceptance speech.
It also meant something approaching the customary red carpet, as nominees were greeted at multiple venues, instead of dialing in from hotel suites or, in some cases, living rooms. Several stars opted to actually dress like the trophies they were vying for, with Best Actress contenders Carey Mulligan and Andra Day both wearing gold. Also trending for nominees? Midriff-baring gowns. Vanessa Kirby, Mulligan and Day all embraced the look, as did presenter Zendaya, who delivered another red carpet mic drop in yellow Valentino and mermaid waves.
As fashion fans know, the most important accolade on Oscar night is not a little gold statue… it’s the title of best-dressed. See all the best looks from the red carpet below.
