Margot Robbie lit up the red carpet at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, dazzling in a custom hot pink gown by Armani Privé that paid homage to the iconic Barbie doll.

The 32-year-old actress, who also produced the film, captivated photographers and fans in a strapless gown and opera-length gloves covered in glittering sequins. With her blonde hair swept back, diamond drop earrings, and bright pink lip, Robbie embodied the signature 1970s Superstar Barbie.
Robbie later revealed on the red carpet that her inspiration was Barbie’s 1977 Superstar doll, which had a pink and white zig-zag pattern gown. The look immediately sparked comparisons to Diana Ross’s iconic sheer beaded dress from her Central Park concert in 1983.

The film scored over $300 million at the global box office, a major win for female-led films. On Sunday, it made history as the first movie to win the ceremony’s new “Box Office Achievement Award.”
