Watch: Margot Robbie: Did She Keep Her "Barbie" Clothes?

When it comes to Margot Robbie's fashion, she is a Barbie girl.

While the actress literally stepped into the stylish shoes of the iconic doll for Greta Gerwig's Barbie, it turns out she was born to play this role. Over the years, Margot has been channeling the beloved toy IRL by tapping into the Barbiecore trend long before it became cool.

She even upped the ante by taking a method approach to her wardrobe ahead of the film's July 21 release date. 

Case in point? The 33-year-old, who nabbed a Golden Globe nomination Dec. 11 for the role, stunned in a vibrant pink and white polka dot halter dress for the film's press junket in June. In fact, Margot's Valentino look was an updated version of what the doll wore in the '90s.

Just two months earlier, she wowed in a pastel pink gingham two-piece set by Prada that resembled the minidress she has in the movie. Her co-star Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken, even joined in on the fun, rocking a Greta Gerwig Barbie tee and pink bomber jacket.

Stars Who Were Almost Cast in Barbie

In May, she donned a black-and-white strapless Chanel gown for a Met Gala 2023 after-party that paid homage to the doll's original 1950s outfit.

That same month, Margot channeled her inner Malibu Barbie for Chanel's Resort 2024 collection, wearing a gold-chain vest paired with a black bustier and dramatic bell-bottom jeans. Her effortless waves and sunkissed makeup were the perfect finishing touches.

As she put it to Vogue, "I'm all Barbie from here until Barbie."

But even before taking on the role of the Mattel doll, Margot's fashion looked like it could've been plucked out of Barbie's closet.

For instance, she looked like a holiday version of the toy at the 2019 London premiere of Mary Queen of Scots, wearing a voluminous polka dot Rodarte dress that featured a vibrant red rose in the center. That same year, she brought '70s Barbie vibes to the Berlin premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Of course, we're only scratching the surface here. Take a look at all of the times Margot channeled Barbie IRL. You just might get fashion inspo.
