Fans queued from 3am, a source told Mark Boardman, London film premiere promoter.

Margot Robbie’s Stunning Ensemble

Margot Robbie, the 33-year-old leading actress, has been captivating audiences with a series of Barbie-inspired looks leading up to the film’s release. For the premiere, she chose to channel the elegance of a 1960s Enchanted Evening figurine. Margot looked simply sensational in a fur-trimmed satin gown in a light pink hue. The dress featured a corseted bodice that nipped in at the waist and gracefully fell into a glamorous train.

To complete her vintage-inspired look, Margot added a touch of sophistication with long silk gloves and a layered pearl choker. She elevated her height with a pair of silver heels, exuding timeless charm.

Ryan Gosling’s Retro Appeal

Playing the role of Ken in the movie, Ryan Gosling perfectly embraced the retro theme at the premiere. He donned a slimline suit in pastel colors, exuding an air of effortless cool. Layering a pale blue satin shirt underneath his jacket, Ryan left it slightly unbuttoned for a relaxed yet stylish appearance. He completed his ensemble with white leather brogues, adding a modern twist to his retro-inspired look.

Dua Lipa’s Dazzling Presence

The star-studded event was further enlivened by the attendance of singer Dua Lipa, who shone in a sheer rhinestone gown. The 27-year-old artist looked sensational in the multicolored dress that shimmered under the lights of the hot pink carpet. She accessorized the plunging neckline with a quirky statement choker and a matching pair of earrings, adding her own unique flair to the ensemble.

The Barbie Soundtrack

Apart from making a special cameo appearance as Mermaid Barbie, Dua Lipa also contributed to the Barbie soundtrack. Her catchy track, “Dance The Night,” serves as the lead single on the soundtrack and was released on May 25. The album will feature other music artists, including Ava Max, Spice Girls’ Emma Bunton, Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, and Billie Eilish. Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken in the live-action movie, will also make an appearance on the soundtrack with his song, “I’m Just Ken.”

Global Press Tour and Creative Team

Margot Robbie, along with other cast members, embarked on a global press tour, making stops in various countries, including Australia, South Korea, and Mexico. The talented director Greta Gerwig, known for her work on films like “Little Women” (2019) and “Lady Bird” (2017), took on the role of director and co-writer, collaborating with Noah Baumbach on the screenplay.

A Star-Studded Cast and Captivating Story

In addition to Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and Dua Lipa, the Barbie movie features a talented ensemble cast. It includes America Ferrera, Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Hari Nef, and Simu Liu, who will portray various versions of both the Barbie and Ken dolls. The film’s narration is skillfully provided by actress Helen Mirren.

The movie, with a budget of $100 million, takes audiences on a journey as Barbie and Ken travel to the real world in search of the true meaning of happiness. Filming commenced at Warner Bros. Studios in England in 2022, with notable exterior shots captured in the vibrant setting of Los Angeles, particularly Venice Beach.

Margot Robbie’s Vulnerability on Set

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Greta Gerwig revealed an insightful behind-the-scenes moment during the filming process. While shooting a scene on Venice Beach, Margot Robbie, dressed in neon rollerblading outfits alongside Ryan Gosling, experienced a feeling of self-consciousness. Gerwig described how people would approach Ryan, complimenting him and expressing admiration, while simply looking at Margot without saying anything. This surreal experience made Margot feel exposed and self-conscious, both as a celebrity and as a woman.

Greta Gerwig, as the director, felt the urge to protect Margot but recognized the importance of capturing the vulnerability and exposure required for the scene. Ryan Gosling also expressed his own discomfort, saying, “I wish I wasn’t wearing this vest.” However, the discomfort felt by Margot and Ryan differed in nature.

Exciting Release Dates

Fans can eagerly anticipate the release of Barbie, scheduled for July 21. This highly anticipated film will captivate audiences with its dazzling cast, engaging storyline, and visually stunning production. Interestingly, Christopher Nolan’s historical epic drama, Oppenheimer, is also set to release on the same day, offering a captivating choice for moviegoers.
