Margot Robbie and stylist Andrew Mukamal are teaming up to create a new fashion photo book. The book is set to feature looks from the red carpet and press tour worn by Margot Robbie herself. Her outfits included one inspired by a 1977 Superstar Barbie! declared “Barbiecore.” Each look was carefully styled by Mukamal who was directly inspired by the original doll.
Mukamal stated on Instagram:
This book was an idea I had in my living room when I started dreaming about Margot’s wardrobe for the Barbie press tour in March 2023. I could have never imagined just a few months later we’d be in the studio shooting this project with the team of our dreams.Via Variety
The famous press tour sent Margot Robbie, director Greta Gerwig, and the rest of the cast around the world. At each stop, Robbie wore an outfit styled by Mukamal that was a direct nod to an actual look worn by Barbie. When the press tour was cut short due to the SAG-AFTRA strike that summer, the photo book was announced, and it was reported that fashion photographer Craig McDean would join Robbie and Mukamal on their project.
Margot Robbie said in a statement:
The ‘Barbie experience’ didn’t just begin when someone sat in their seat and watched the movie, and I didn’t want it to end when the movie finished.Via Variety
When the Barbie movie released in the summer of 2023, it was not just for our viewing, but also a whole experience. People dressed up in pink and their best Barbie outfits to commemorate the film. Robbie was onto something when she claimed she didn’t want the experience to end when the movie finished. It has become something that everyone everywhere can participate in.
Barbie: The World Tour is set to be released on March 8, 2024, by Rizzoli Publishing. This fashion photo book is sure to keep the momentum of the film experience going. Starting from the moment we got a glimpse of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken in Venice Beach, CA, we can keep having fun with the movie magic. Get ready to immerse yourself back into the Barbie world!
