Where To Shop Margot Robbie’s Iconic Looks From Barbie

Margot Robbie as a Barbie can fly down stairs and walk on water while going through a very relatable girlhood-to-womanhood identity crisis, and we love her for that. Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie is the biggest film (and perhaps the biggest fashion event) of the year for good reason. It’s become the highest-grossing film ever from a female filmmaker, and even more impressively, it’s touched so many of our lives and has most definitely influenced our style.

Whether you got major life in plastic inspo from seeing it in theaters, are having an at-home viewing party, or are planning this year’s Halloween costume, we’ve combed through the film to put together the best Barbie movie outfits to replicate yourself. Think bigger than Barbiecore pink — we’ve covered different iterations of Margot Robbie’s Stereotypical Barbie in all of her whimsical dresses, jumpsuits, activewear, and more to show just how wearable and versatile they can be. Read on to find the best Barbie feather heels, gingham pieces, hair accessories (think bows, berets, and cowboy hats), and a take on the now-iconic outfit from the film’s final scene. Spoilers ahead!


How to dress like Margot Robbie as Pink Gingham Barbie

We see Margot Robbie’s Barbie sporting pink gingham several times in the film, first in a ’50s-style flared sundress that she wears while getting ready, accessorized with a matching hair bow and statement daisy earrings and necklace. The second time, she’s on the beach in a playsuit with a heart-shaped cutout back, pink gingham sun hat, and plastic shell jewelry. This is the print we’re most closely associating with Gerwig’s Barbie universe (Pink Gingham Barbie has also been immortalized in doll form by Mattel and was championed by Robbie on the press tour).

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Barbie in her pink, fluffy heels

When the first Barbie teaser trailer dropped, it set the internet alight. One scene, in particular, rocked algorithms the world over: Barbie stepping out of a pair of pink, fluffy heels, her feet perfectly pointed as a real Barbie doll’s would be. To quote director Bong Joon-ho, “To me, that’s cinema.”

Barbie’s feet — and her choice of footwear — play a significant role in her character development, so nabbing a pair of Barbie-esque heels is the perfect (and easiest!) starting point for dressing like the character. Whether you opt for a platform heel or kitten heel, be sure to pick the pinkest pair you can find (bonus points for feathers and other embellishments like rhinestones).

How to dress like Margot Robbie as No. 1 Ponytail Barbie

Our very first glimpse of Robbie as Barbie was nothing short of iconic. Dressed as No. 1 Ponytail Barbie — the original Barbie doll from 1959 — she stands proud and godlike in homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Nail the look with a black-and-white striped swimsuit, white cat-eye sunglasses, red lips, gold hoop earrings, and black peep-toe pumps.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Disco Jumpsuit Barbie

What’s a big, blowout party without glitzy disco outfits, a group of friends, a choreographed dance…and intrusive thoughts? That’s how it rolls in Barbie Land, anyway, as Robbie’s Barbie kills the mood with some existential questions about death.

We’ll leave the philosophizing to Barbie but for your own disco queen look, you want to be thinking ultra glam and gold. In the film, Robbie wears a jumpsuit that seems to be a nod to the 1981 Golden Dream Barbie. If you really want to recreate this look, Barbie’s frothy headpiece could be a fun DIY project with some wire, tulle, gold ribbon, and a glue gun.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Sailor Barbie

Barbie loves nothing more than a theme, as proven by her beachside sailor outfit (a look also adopted by her fellow Barbies). Throughout Barbie’s history, she’s had several nautical looks, mainly in the ’60s. She’s worn sailor stripes, retro bathing suits and bloomers, anchor motifs, and pleated skirts with suspenders. This is your sign to go barefoot and rock a retro coastal look (or just coastal accessories as we move into colder weather).

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Pink Beret Barbie

When Robbie’s Barbie decides to leave Barbie Land and visit “the real world” to discover “the truth about the universe,” she dons the universal symbol of poets and philosophers: a beret. Naturally, hers is pink. You can also shop Peter Pan collar dresses or tops and dainty pink bows to achieve her ultra-fashionable road trip look.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Cowgirl Barbie

Yeehaw! Barbie has gone country several times in the past (namely 1980’s Western Superstar Barbie and 1993’s Western Stampin’ Barbie), but Gerwig’s hot-pink Cowgirl Barbie feels fresh and contemporary; it’s an outfit we could easily imagine wearing to a Harry Styles concert. If you’re on the hunt for a similarly colorful Western look, keep an eye out for separates as well as bold jumpsuits and cowboy boots to achieve an ultra-glam look.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Rollerskating Barbie

Barbie and Ken have been rollerskating since 1980, but Gerwig’s film iterations are clearly taking fashion inspiration from 1991’s Rollerblade Barbie’s cycle shorts and 1994’s Hot Skatin’ Barbie’s abstract prints and neon wheels. Though one of the most costume-y looks of the bunch, it’s one of the easiest to recreate, thanks to a resurgence of neon styles and dead-on Etsy dupes. We’ve even found a pair of yellow sneakers if inline skates are a bit too out-there for you.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Barbie in her pink power jumpsuit

After the Kens step out of line and take over Barbie Land, Margot Robbie’s Barbie and her fellow Barbies want to take back what’s rightfully theirs. (I mean, how dare the Kens change Barbie’s pristine pink Dreamhouse into a horse-themed Mojo Dojo Casa House?) They assemble a task force of sorts and, of course, have matching outfits to take over the patriarchy. Step out in a retro pink boiler suit and accessorize with oversized sunglasses, a puffy headband, or a printed headscarf to show people you mean business.

How to dress like Margot Robbie as Barbie as a human

When we first saw BTS photos of Robbie dressed in pink Birkenstocks and clothes that didn’t look doll-like, we questioned everything. When we finally watched that scene, it all made sense, and this look became just as iconic as her others. Robbie’s effortlessly chic look is a perfect everyday outfit that incorporates pink in a more digestible way. The pushed-up-sleeve blazer and relaxed-fit jeans are fresh, just like Robbie’s hair, which is casually pulled back rather than sleekly styled for the first time. This is no doubt the most wearable and versatile Barbie outfit in the movie and the easiest for you to replicate for a subtle Barbie flare.
