The ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike means that Zendaya is taking a pause from wearing nice clothes on the red carpet. It also means that she is doing what so many other 27 year olds do when feeling bored: logging onto Instagram and expressing herself in a series of dissociative outfit pictures. And in the absence of high-glam events, these portraits are beginning to take on an outsized, costume drama dimension.
Last week, the actor uploaded this photo of herself in a crystal-encrusted micro bralette with an enormous skirt and mutton-sleeved top from Collina Strada’s autumn/winter 2020 collection. She then went even further and posted an image of herself in a pannier-hipped gown from Mathieu Blazy’s autumn/winter 2023 proposal at Bottega Veneta. She looked as though she was perhaps starring in cool, fashion-forward version of Bridgerton.
That retina-burning hue is also one of 2023’s most prolific fashion trends, with Dua Lipa and EmRata and Margot Robbie and Kate Moss all cloaking themselves in its dangerous associations. “It’s the color of kings and queens, war and empire, theatre and power,” as Charlotte Sinclair previously wrote. “Red is adrenaline, fireworks, the break with convention. It is shame and violence and blushing and rage.”

The Deep Meaning Behind Margot Robbie’s Yellow Dress at the End of Barbie

The Deep Meaning Behind Margot Robbie’s Yellow Dress at the End of Barbie

Barbie has always been inextricably linked with fashion. Her clothing is a huge part of what makes the doll both, a playtime favorite and a style icon. This essence has been perfectly captured by the Barbie movie’s director Greta Gerwig and costume designer Jacqueline Durran.
From bespoke Chanel ensembles to the iconic striped bathing suit, there were a number of unforgettable style moments in the movie. However, a dress that seems to have passed under the radar carries the symbolism expected of a movie that claims to be a lot deeper than it first appears. After Margot Robbie‘s stereotypical Barbie succeeds in defeating the Kens and restoring the matriarchy in Barbieland, she appears in a simple yellow dress. The look contrasts highly with her previous extravagant pink wardrobe but according to an interview Durran had with Variety, it is symbolic of how Barbie has changed throughout the movie.
“The Barbies have gone through all of that stuff and they’re now the most fulfilled versions of themselves,” Durran said. “And that sets the scene for what’s happening to Margot’s Barbie as she’s becoming human.” While the other Barbies are more than satisfied having thwarted the creation of Kendom, Robbie’s Barbie desires something beyond her existence as a doll. As she puts it in the movie, “I want to do the imagining, not be the idea.” This shift towards wanting to be human over her earlier insistence that she wanted nothing to change is encapsulated by the dress.

Unlike traditional Barbie clothes or the ones worn earlier in the movie, this dress accentuates the softness of the human body. Durran explains, “The costume is a bias cut dress which drapes—it’s not Barbie quality.” The color is also highly significant here, “I was keen to track the history of Mattel in the costumes. I asked them what was the most popular costume in the last 5 to 10 years. It turns out it’s a yellow dress. I was going to copy that dress, but it wouldn’t really be recognizable enough.”
This dress was made by Duran herself, like many other pieces in Barbie. “We wanted a soft yellow and wanted it to have less pop. So, we printed that yellow onto white silk, and because of the cut, it clings to the body. That’s not really a Barbie characteristic — the Barbie characteristic is to be cut straight and to create a shape that falls away from the body.”
The Oscar-nominated costume designer made sure that every part of the ensemble exuded the humanity she was trying to capture. “We moved from the classic Barbie heeled court shoe into something softer, but at the same time we had to keep the heel,” Durran said of the wedges before explaining the Missoma heart locket, “There’s a source of pathos in a locket that Barbie doesn’t necessarily have. So, earlier in the film, she has heart accessories that she wears in the block party, and she has huge heart earrings, but there’s something about that locket and scale that makes it more human.”

Nothing gold can stay. The Barbie press tour, starring Margot Robbie in glorious designer dresses, came to a close a week before the movie’s premiere due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, though given that the extended deadline was known for months, it’s highly likely that the “Enchanted Evening” and “Solo in the Spotlight” looks were always meant to be the grand finales. There probably isn’t a fuchsia gown sitting in a storage unit somewhere, unworn. Stylists plan ahead.
Throughout the tour, Robbie’s stylist, Andrew Mukamal, dressed her in a combination of both Barbie-inspired dress replicas (day-to-night comes to mind) and cute outfits that channel the spirit of the doll more than a particular look, like this vintage Versace number and a Little Red Dress for what ended up being the last event of the rollout.
But there are still a few more looks to obsess over! Not that Robbie is walking any more red carpets (a huge no-no under current strike rules, and This Barbie Would Never Cross A Picket Line!), but Mukamal blessed our Instagram feeds with pictures of the outfits that didn’t get enough attention during the presstravaganza, and honestly, they are so good.

There’s another metallic Versace dress, accessorized with heeled loafers and a tiny box purse, the Chanel set that makes me seethe with how good blondes look in yellow, a magenta Versace skirt and crop top, a strawberry-patterned halter dress by Moschino and two Little Pink Patterned Dresses, one by Versace and the other from Valentino. Clock through for all the wardrobe inspo you’ll need for the rest of the summer…

(Also, fuzzy-pursed Vivienne Westwood suit for fall.)
What is the event where Margot Robbie sat on a car!? From the flags in the captions, it was apparently in Britain? Vogue should do a spread on this tour. There should be a runway show of these looks. Mukamal deserves a MacArthur genius grant.

This Barbie loves Versace. For the European premiere of the Barbie movie in London, Dua Lipa graced the pink carpet in a head-to-toe look from her own Versace ‘La Vacanza’ collection—a collaboration between the pop star and the Italian fashion house. And we mean it: from her chunky necklaces down to a pair of strappy, silver, square-toed sandals.
Lipa’s ensemble was something of a Y2K fever dream. A refractive, psychedelic slip dress with gilded straps and paired with a charm-heavy bracelet and choker oozed Versace’s signature opulence (though with a whimsical twist). The most playful moment came courtesy of Lipa’s Crystal Butterflies Metallic Sandals, blue-winged insects wound around her calves for a pretty, playful finish.

The Barbie movie soundtrack features a song by Lipa (“Dance the Night”) as well as an appearance from the pop star herself as Mermaid Barbie. But while the dress’s slinky fit and metallic finish fit within the mermaid-core aesthetic, Lipa’s sandals are the stuff of above-water reveries.

The Barbie Trailer Is Full of Fashion Easter Eggs

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.

Margot Robbie’s Most Stylish Moments Over the Years

Margot Robbie’s Most Stylish Moments Over the Years

Margot Robbie, one of Hollywood’s most stylish and well-known faces, turns 32 on Saturday.Since her breakthrough role as Naomi Lapaglia in the 2013 hit dark comedy “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the Australian actress has starred in some of the biggest movies worldwide and inked high-profile ambassadorships with luxury brands, one of which is Chanel.
Though she’s worked closely with Chanel and its then creative director Karl Lagerfeld for years, she was eventually named a brand ambassador in March 2018. Robbie is reportedly the last ambassador chosen by the legendary German couturier before his death in February 2019.

Robbie has worn some of the most memorable creations by the French luxury fashion house to events such as the Oscars, the Golden Globes and movie premieres.

One of the most notable looks was her dress at the 2018 Academy Awards. The white gown, custom-designed by Lagerfeld himself, featured intricate draped off-the-shoulder embroidered detailing with a matching bag and jewelry. She wore her hair in a short bob, which was supposed to align with the ‘90s mood she and her longtime stylist Kate Young were aiming for.

Her press tour outfits for her 2019 movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” featured an array of dresses and hairstyles that paid homage to Hollywood fashion icons such as Lauren Hutton and Sharon Tate, the latter of whom Robbie played in the movie.
For events, the actress has also worn the likes of Valentino, Miu Miu, Prada, Versace, Zimmermann and more, working closely with Young for years. The stylist also works with other stars such as Sienna Miller, Selena Gomez and Dakota Johnson.
Throughout her career so far, Robbie has starred in films such as “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” “I, Tonya,” “Mary, Queen of Scots,” “Bombshell” and “Birds of Prey,” among others.
She has also produced several successful projects such as the Hulu series “Dollface,” “Promising Young Woman” and Netflix miniseries “Maid.” She has been nominated for numerous accolades, including two Academy Awards and three Golden Globes.
Robbie has been tapped to star in Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” movie, playing the titular role alongside Ryan Gosling who will play Ken. The movie is scheduled for release in July 2023.

Everything to Know About the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie

Everything to Know About the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie

An official “Barbie” movie is coming.
Margot Robbie will star in the titular role with Ryan Gosling playing her boyfriend, Ken. The movie will be directed by Greta Gerwig, who has also worked on big projects such as “Little Women” and “Ladybird.” Noah Baumbach, also a well-known filmmaker and Gerwig’s partner, cowrote the script with Gerwig. The two share a son.
Though very little is known about the film, it reportedly will begin production next year with a release date of sometime in 2023.
In July, Variety confirmed that Gerwig will be directing the upcoming comedy, after Robbie casually mentioned her directorial role during her interview with British Vogue in June.
“It comes with a lot of baggage,” the actress told the publication of playing the iconic role of Barbie. “And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that comes a lot of exciting ways to attack it. People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t.’”

Deadline was the first to confirm that Gosling signed to play the role of Ken on Friday, though he reportedly initially passed on the project due to his busy schedule.
Fans are eager to know more about the film and they can expect some fresh, new twists given Gerwig’s directing style. Her breakout movie “Ladybird,” which starred Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, earned five Oscar nominations. Her latest movie, “Little Women,” which also starred Ronan, as well as Timothée Chalamet and Florence Pugh, received six Oscar nominations.

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.
