In the article written by Abby Aguirre, there’s much discussion over Margot’s own Barbie memories, preparing for the iconic role, the highs & lows of producing the film, costume designer Jacqueline Durran’s Barbie vision, & much more!
The wait is over for the mystery plot of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film, starring Margot Robbie & Ryan Gosling! The plot, which see Barbie make a choice about entering the real world, looks like not only an homage to America’s favorite fashion doll, but a funny & intelligent take on the misconceptions about her too. The film, set for a July 21st theatrical release, is bound to garner lots of buzz & blow up this summer’s already fabulous Barbiecore trends.
One of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2023 just came one step closer to fruition. Barbie, starring Margot Robbie as the titular Mattel doll, has come to life, along with Ryan Gosling as Ken, in the Greta Gerwig-directed film that has the internet in a frenzy since those rollerblading videos first hit the web this summer. Now, at last, the first teaser trailer has been released & it’s looking to be everything we want in all of its glossy & escapist glory!
Australian beauty Margot Robbie rules every red carpet & film she stars in, creating more & more opportunities for female filmmakers as a producer & inspiring the next generation of visionaries to challenge stereotypes & break barriers. In the December 2022 / January 2023 issue of Vanity Fair, the two-time Academy Award nominated star discusses her upcoming roles in Babylon, opposite Brad Pitt, & Barbie, alongside Ryan Gosling.
However, Ana stole the spotlight in a shimmering Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 gown, especially with all the buzz surrounding her upcoming portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the film adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates fictional biographyBlonde, directed by Andrew Dominik. After a breakout last two years in Knives Out and the recent 007 film, No Time to Die, Ana is one to watch on screen & on the red carpet. Every angle of this gown is beautiful & her poise, starpower, & style are breathtaking.
Additionally, the film’s cast includes Bridgerton alum Regé-Jean Page in a navy suit, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood rising star Julia Butters in a gold sparkling gown, Jessica Henwick from The Matrix Resurrections wearing a plunging v-neck gray gown, Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard, Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton, & Indian actor Dhanush. Also, in attendance for the premiere, lighting up the red carpet were Bridgerton star Simone Ashley in a black cut-out gown, the voice of Moana & Brazillian actress Any Gabrielly, model Kara Del Toro in a red ruched lace high-slit gown, model & YouTube star Emma Brooks in a black deep-v mini dress, & Disney star Kelli Berglund in a mixed printed mini dress.

The film debuts on Netflix for your streaming pleasure on July 22nd! I know I can’t wait to see it–even though action films aren’t necessarily my go-to film choice, I’m a loyal follower of Ana de Armas & Ryan Gosling, happy to support their stylish endeavors with posts on Style Darling Daily, along with their on-screen accomplishments.
Barbiecore? That’s a thing? you ask? Well, yes. Hot pink fashion is super hot right now, not only because of recently released photos of Margot Robbie in the upcoming Barbie movie, but because it’s the summer of fun, feminine, flirty, & fierce fashion! Top A-listers are appearing in all-pink for red carpet events, major fashion shows, & all over social media every. single. day. Additionally, pink is popping up on runways & go-to retailers to take a not-pink-enough world by storm!
Finally, memorable red carpet appearances popping with Barbiecore include model Gigi Hadiat Prince’s Trust Gala, both artist Saweetie & actor Billy Porter at the Grammy Awards, actress / talk show host Drew Barrymore at the Daytime Emmy Awards, & actress Lana Condor at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

It’s everywhere & yet so far away still! Greta Gerwig‘s live-action Barbie film is currently in production & the internet is ablaze with images & commentary on the ultra neon on-screen duo of Barbie & Ken, played respectively by two-time Academy Award-nominees Margot Robbie & Ryan Gosling. One may ask, could the movie get any blonder? However, you’re going to get more than meets the blinded-by-neon eye from this movie, especially with Gerwig at the helm… which is slated for a July 2023 release. I will be glued to the web with updates over the course of the next year, waiting with bated breath for the first major motion picture about the ultimate Style Darling herself: Barbie.
In the mean time, throw on some shades, play that 90s Aqua song, & scroll through the slideshow & gallery below for all that’s been photographed so far of the Hollywood icons portraying iconic characters:
Anne Hathaway is hitting every media outlet this week, promoting her latest film, The Intern, co-starring Robert DeNiro. She made a recent appearance on Good Morning America with a quirky, surprising outfit that shows she’s still the cool girl we loved from back in The Devil Wears Prada day. Check out her lip print Equipment x Garance Doré (shop here @Farfetch) & her edgy Osman leather skirt (shop similar here @Bergdorf Goodman), which she paired with chic accessories, including white frame sunglasses, gold bangles & a ring, & red suede pumps (shop similar here @Saks Fifth Avenue).
I recently scored a 2011 Marilyn Monroe calendar photographed by Sam Shaw for only about $4. I do already own another one, which I’ve yet to put up since I have a Barbie calendar currently hanging on my wall. As a big fan of Marilyn’s, I love finding modern-day pieces that really emulate her sexy elegance, while also staying true to my style-on-a-budget philosophy. Her casual private style was very Americana in white button down shirts & eyelet summer dresses. Here however, I’ve found an image that’s probably from one of her films, but I don’t know which. When I find out, I will certainly revise this blog b/c I love to be precise.
Take a look at this really gorgeous floral print pencil dress (yes it’s hardly visible, but it must chic since she’s wearing it!) with a white knee-length coat & classic round toe pumps. Now that spring fashion has arrived & that little groundhog told us that spring is just around the corner, let’s hope that we can break out the lighter fashions sooner rather than later. Also, I’m reminded of this demure Oscar de la Renta dress worn by Eva Mendes from back in August. Also we see Eva channels this very sophisticated silhouette back in September 2008 in Bill Blass for the premiere of The Women.
This is a luxurious combination of items that could work in a really fabulous way right now! Check out the earrings, which are only $1.50 (also available in mint & pink) @Forever21!
