Barbie has broken many records since its release, and its promo tour was one for the books. Margot Robbie’s amazing red carpet looks significantly increased public interest in this movie, and here are five trends she put on the map during the Barbie promo tour.


The Barbiecore trend has been going strong for quite a while, and just when we throughout we’d had enough of it, Margot Robbie swooped in to prove us wrong. We’ve seen her wear many head-to-toe pink looks to channel her inner Barbie.

Nostalgia Dressing

Nostalgia dressing was a huge part of Robbie’s promo tour for Barbie. Her stylist Andrew Mukamal worked closely with several major designers to carefully curate the looks that perfectly recreated iconic Barbie outfits from previous eras.

Corset Dresses

We’ve seen Robbie wear several corset dresses while promoting Barbie, ranging from her ’90s-inspired “Earning Magic” look in Mexico to the glamorous “Enchanted Evening” dress by Vivienne Westwood in London.

Opera Gloves

Robbie also embraced Old Hollywood glamour by wearing dramatic opera gloves at the Barbie world premiere in Los Angeles before embracing this trend again in London.

Manolo Blahnik Shoes

Robbie took a page from Carrie Bradshaw’s book when picking shoes for the Barbie press tour. We’ve seen her wear dresses by many different designers, but when it came to shoes, she mostly stayed loyal to the iconic high-end brand Manolo Blahnik.
