After waiting for as long as a Disney teen does for her prince charming, the Barbie promotion tour has finally splattered the globe with some unique gloss. 

Yup, it’s not just Baby Pink! So what is it? Well, read on and you’ll find out how Margot Robbie is teasing the heart of every dream house.

Margot Robbie's Non-Pink 'Barbie' Red Carpet Look

It's been a long wait, but we're finally nearing the end of Margot Robbie's fabulous Barbie press tour, leading up to the release of the film on July 21. 

But that all changed on the red carpet for the Barbie premiere when Margot Robbie decided to break away from the pink tradition and opted for a sequined strapless gown from Schiaparelli. Even in black, Robbie stayed true to her recent repertoire of Mattel-approved looks.

It featured a figure-hugging A-line silhouette that gracefully cut off at her shins, revealing a voluminous tulle hem that poked out in all directions. And let's not forget the finishing touch—Margot gave us a glimpse of her black peep-toe Manolo Blahnik slides.

Dilara Findikoglu 

After stealing the show at the European premiere, Robbie continued to turn heads at the VIP photocall with a fiery twist! 

She wore a custom red mini corseted dress created by the talented Turkish-British designer, Dilara Findikoglu. Embodying the essence of the vivacious 1962 Brunette Bubble Cut Barbie.

Barbie 'Totally Hair' 1992

Andrew Mukamal has worked his magic to create attire that paid homage to specific vintage Barbie dolls. From head to toe, Robbie has flawlessly embodied the essence of these iconic toys.

She channelled the legendary 'Totally Hair' Barbie from 1992. At the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City, Robbie stepped out in a show-stopping Emilio Pucci minidress adorned with a vibrant pattern of pink, purple, green, and white. 

The long-sleeved dress featured a flouncy-ruffled hem, capturing the spirit of the beloved doll herself.

Of course, no Barbie-inspired look would be complete without the right accessories. Robbie adorned it with pink Manolo Blahnik heels, a Chanel bag, and exquisite jewellery from Taffin. 

Enchanted Evening

It was a night of pure enchantment as Margot Robbie stepped onto the red carpet for the European premiere of Barbie in Vivienne Westwood's creation.

The ethereal dress, made of delicate light pink silk, featured a structured corset bodice. Gathered white tulle bodice trim added an element of fantasy.

She slipped her feet into a pair of exquisite mules boasted metallic silver leather uppers, with thin soles and angled heels. The pièce de résistance? Clear slip-on straps adorned with sparkling crystals, mirroring the enchanting details of the "Enchanted Evening" doll.

Another Day, Another Crimped Barbie

She has taken the concept of Barbiecore fashion to a whole new level, leaving all previous interpretations in the dust. 

Just when we thought she couldn't get any more authentic, Margot took us back to the '90s with a look that mirrored the 1992 Earring Magic Barbie. 

This time, it was a sculpting hot-pink leather corseted minidress designed by Balmain. 

The dress was cinched at the waist with a silver chain belt adorned with sparkly charms, it featured drop earrings with heart-and star-shaped pendants, and bright pink Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Pinkie In Chanel

Margot was spotted in Sydney, Australia, and her outfit was a true vintage Chanel dream. She rocked a cropped pink tweed jacket (of course, it had to be pink) over a white bra top, paired with high-waisted beige trousers and chic black-and-tan slingback heels. 

With a black belt featuring a gold Chanel logo-embossed buckle, a tiny black handbag, and retro-inspired sunglasses straight out of Barbie's own wardrobe. 

But what really caught everyone's eye was her pink leather luggage, reminiscent of the adorable suitcases Barbie would carry. 

Matching Summer Sky As She Dresses Up In Yellow & Cloudy White

She's not afraid to switch up her colour palette. Robbie decided to bring some sunshine into the mix with a yellow tweed Chanel set that brought back memories of Cher Horowitz from Clueless.

She styled her straight blonde locks with a side part, reminiscent of Alicia Silverstone's iconic hairstyle in the teen flick. 

And let's not forget the accessory game—Margot added a fuzzy white bag to the mix, adding a touch of texture to the outfit.

Day to Night Barbie — 1985

Her recent appearance in South Korea may have been her most Barbie-esque yet, clearly displaying her "connection" to Barbie in reality. Margot stepped out in a pink Versace skirt suit that was the spitting image of the Day to Night Barbie doll from 1985.

It featured a matching pink and white hat and a pink handbag. Robbie accessorized with a pair of white sunglasses and pink pumps and completed the look with a sleek ponytail and a rosy lip.

Autumn/ Winter 1994 Versace

Wearing a metallic miniskirt and pink cable-knit jumper from Versace's Fall/Winter 1994 collection. Originally worn by Kate Moss on the runway, Robbie looks just as chic in it.

The white loafers and purple socks add a touch of fun, and they kept the look from being too serious.

Barbie CinemaCon 2023

The actress while promoting her upcoming film, Barbie, clearly took inspiration from her on-screen character for her outfit choices.

She stepped out at CinemaCon 2023 in a pink gingham set by Prada and pink Louboutin mules. 

First-Ever Outfit 

Robbie can be seen wearing the iconic black-and-white Hervé Léger swimsuit in the film's teaser trailer that was also worn by the first Barbie doll.

She accessorized with white cat-eye sunglasses and hoop earrings.
