Margot Robbie stunned on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night in a hot pink gown inspired by the 1970s Superstar Barbie doll. The actress, who plays the iconic Mattel toy in the upcoming “Barbie” movie, channeled vintage Barbie glamour with her voluminous Armani Privé dress and feathered cape.

Sequin Gown Brings Superstar Barbie to Life

Robbie arrived at the Beverly Hilton in a strapless pink gown covered in sequins that featured a sweetheart neckline and floor-length skirt flared out dramatically by a crinoline. The look was reminiscent of Barbie’s 1977 Superstar doll, complete with a fuchsia boa draped over her shoulders.

“I wanted to honor the superstar Barbie from the 70s with the gown and boa!” Robbie told E! News on the red carpet. “As an actor, you rarely get to play iconic characters like this that had such an influence on you as a child.”

The Australian actress paired the glamorous retro outfit with an ultra-slick bun, statement diamond earrings, and bright pink lipstick for a modern bombshell twist.

“Margot looks every inch the living doll with her latest red carpet appearance,” British Vogue wrote of her look. “The hot-pink creation tapped right into one of next season’s biggest trends with its ultra-glamorous silhouette.”

Paying Homage to Her Iconic Character

The high-fashion Barbie ensemble continues Robbie’s streak of paying tribute to her box office character in her own wardrobe.

The 31-year-old actress “has fully embodied the doll over the last year as she continued to promote the film,” InStyle magazine wrote.

At the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles last month, the lead star also channeled Malibu Barbie in a powder blue bandeau top and matching maxi skirt by Chanel. Accessories included a miniature Kelly bag that conjured images of the doll’s hot pink purse.

Robbie was similarly on-theme for the movie’s European premiere in London earlier this month, brightening up a rainy day in a colorful striped Chanel dress under an equally playful neon coat.

First Nomination for Her Buzziest Role

Robbie’s head-turning Globes outfit coincided with her first-ever acting nomination at the awards for her lead role in “Barbie.”

While she ultimately lost the Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy prize to Michelle Yeoh, Robbie made Barbiecore history by giving the children’s toy her first-ever awards recognition.

Many believe her Globes nod will lead to the first Best Actress Oscar nomination for playing a doll on the big screen when the Academy Award nominations are announced later this month.

Robbie faces stiff competition for the 2024 Best Actress trophy from Cate Blanchett’s performance in “Tár” and Yeoh’s turn in “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”

But her scene-stealing red carpet homage to 1970s Barbie on one of Hollywood’s biggest nights emphasizes the growing industry excitement around Robbie’s buzzy performance as the world’s most famous fashion doll come to life.
