Steal Their Look: 'Barbie' Pink Carpet

Confectionary shades and girly silhouettes flooded the pink carpet of the 'Barbie' premiere in anticipation of this summer's biggest blockbuster. We've scoured designer wedding dress lines to find matching dupes of the cast's pink carpet looks so you can feel fantastic in plastic for your big day!


After smashing the box office with a record-breaking release, Greta Gerwig's 'Barbie' blockbuster is the film on everyone's lips. As part of the $150 million marketing campaign that accompanied the cotton candy movie, the cast took to the pink carpet for premieres in Los Angeles, Seoul, London and more in their finest barbie fashions. Some wore looks inspired by the doll itself while others took inspiration from their characters to curate a fit, calling upon the top designers, every look was plastic fantastic! We've matched these high fashion looks to wedding dresses and gowns so you can steal the style of the stars for your big day. After all, everyone wants to feel like Barbie!

Vivienne Westwood & Elbeth Gillis


Margot Robbie, playing the lead 'Barbie' in the film, stormed the pink carpet in this Vivienne Westwood number, inspired by the 1960 'Enchanted Evening' barbie. Giving bridal heaven, the draped corset dress in blush-pink satin was paired with a fuzzy white stole, matte ivory opera gloves and a crystal rosette. We've matched it with the Harlow Dress and Feather Stole from Elbeth Gillis for your barbie wedding day, brimming with on-trend feathers and flowy trains!

Margot Robbie switched up her colour scheme for the Los Angeles premiere with this Schiaparelli black sequin embroidered bustier dress with multi-layered tulle hem and matching black opera gloves. She was inspired by the 1960's 'Solo in the Spotlight' barbie for this look and to make it bridal, we have matched it with the Soleil Dress from Halfpenny London's 'Courage' Collection. The bustier flatters the shoulders and statement gloves add a stylish flair to the outfit, perfection!

Perfect for her character of 'Mermaid Barbie', the revealing chain-mail knit dress was adorned with crystals. Get the singer's look by opting for a sparkly piece like this one from Lee Grebenau's Allure Collection. Ideal for a hen do celebration or engagement party, get ready to 'Dance the Night' away!

Robbie pulled out this shimmering mini dress for the Sydney premiere, made for her by Versace. The look was inspired by a piece worn by Claudia Schiffer in 1994, a real-life barbie rather than a doll inspiring the Australian movie star's red carpet fashion. The metal mesh and sweetheart neckline put us in mind of the Stella beaded mini-dress from the Katherine Tash Ready to Wear Collection. Sparkle and stun like Margot by changing into a fun mini-dress for the evening segment of your wedding, giving you the freedom to bust out your very own choreographed dance routine with the girls! Every night is girl's night!

Saint Laurent & Reformation


'Physicist Barbie', Emma Mackey, plumped for simple on the pink carpet for the London premiere in this Saint Laurent satin slip dress, with her natural brown tresses tumbling over her shoulders. We paired it with a satin slip from Reformation Bridal, and just like Emma Mackey, a simple string of diamonds was enough to let the stunning gown shine. The liquidised quality of the fabric is ideal for a bridal look, and even gives that plastic barbie look that you've been dreaming of.
