Actress-producer Margot Robbie provides a glimpse into the enchanting world of Barbie, where women hold the reins and run the show. When asked about her attraction to the film, Robbie expresses her admiration for the iconic Barbie brand and the profound nostalgic connection it holds for people worldwide. She saw the opportunity to create something truly exceptional by approaching the Barbie movie in an unexpected, surprising, and clever manner.
Robbie acknowledges that tackling the Barbie project was not without its challenges. As she notes, audiences already have preconceived notions about Barbie, whether positive or negative. Breaking those preconceptions presented a significant hurdle, but Robbie and her team were up for the task. She draws inspiration from Greta Gerwig’s sentiment, acknowledging the initial fear surrounding the project. Nevertheless, they embraced the challenge with determination.
Intrigued by the world of Barbie, Margot Robbie delves deeper into its unique dynamics. Barbie Land is a place where simplicity reigns supreme. The fun lies in having a car, a house, and a Ken doll. It serves as a flipside to the real world, where men often hold positions of power. In Barbie Land, women—Barbies—run everything, creating a utopia where barriers between individuals vanish. There are no walls, and they embrace this freedom without any sense of embarrassment.
Robbie explains the Barbie mindset and the daily routine. Dressing up plays a crucial role in Barbie’s perfect day. She wakes up, waves at her neighbor Barbie, brushes her teeth, takes a shower, and then heads to her magical wardrobe to select her outfit. With a spin, the chosen ensemble magically appears on her body. As she leaves, her outfit for the next day awaits her in the wardrobe. Chanel features prominently in Barbie’s fashion choices, showcasing fabulous outfits that exude elegance. Jewelry, in true doll fashion, is bold and plastic, with oversized necklaces and earrings. Hats are not for protection from the sun but serve as additional accessories, complementing the overall look alongside bags and shoes.
Robbie gives credit to costume designer Jacqueline Durran for her exceptional work in bringing the characters’ looks to life. Durran masterfully showcases the evolution of Barbie’s fashion choices throughout the film, subtly reflecting the passage of time and the changing decades.
