Margot Robbie stunned in an embroidered tulle-trimmed satin gown as she joined Ryan Gosling for the UK premiere of Barbie in London on Wednesday.
The leading actress, 33, debuted a series of doll-inspired looks ahead of the film’s release and opted to channel the 1960s Enchanted Evening idol for the much-anticipated event at Cineworld, Leicester Square.
She looked simply sensational in a light pink Vivienne Westwood Couture dress that cinched at the waist with a corseted bodice before falling into a chic train.
Margot topped off the vintage look with a pair of silk opera gloves and a layered pearl choker, elevating her height with a pair of silver heels.
The custom dress was a special development for Margot from the Vivienne Westwood 2023 Couture collection Moonlight gown – a corseted asymmetric look with defined drapery, reminiscent of ancient Greek statues.

Margot, who tackles the lead role of Barbie, has recently been busy on a global press tour with other cast members, making stops in countries such as Australia, South Korea and Mexico.
Greta Gerwig, who is known for directing past films like Little Women (2019) and Lady Bird (2017), has not only taken on the role of director of the upcoming fantasy comedy, but also penned the screenplay with Noah Baumbach.
The Barbie movie stars not only Margot, Ryan and Dua, but also America Ferrera, Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Harry Neff and Simu Liu. Different versions of both Barbie and Ken dolls will be portrayed, with actress Helen Mirren narrating the film.
The premise of the movie, which has a budget of $100 million, follows Barbie and Ken as they travel the real world to find the true meaning of happiness.
Filming began last year in 2022 at Warner Bros. Studios in England, while some exterior shots were notably shot outside Los Angeles such as Venice.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Greta revealed that Margot felt ‘self-conscious’ while filming the Venice Beach scene.
‘But when we were shooting in Venice Beach, with Margot and Ryan in neon roller blading outfits, it was interesting because it was actually happening in front of us,’ he explained.
‘People will go up to Ryan, high-five him, and say, “Awesome, Ryan, you look great!” And they won’t actually tell Margot. They would just look at him. It was just surreal. At that moment, he felt self-conscious.’
Gerwig added, ‘And as a director I wanted to protect him. But I also knew that the scene we were shooting had to be the scene where he felt exposed. And she was exposed as both a celebrity and a woman.’
‘To be fair, Ryan was like, “I wish I wasn’t wearing this vest.” But it was a different kind of discomfort.’
Barbie will officially hit theaters later this month on July 21, the same day Christopher Nolan’s historical epic drama, Oppenheimer is also released.
