Barbie, what is quickly becoming one of 2023's most highly-anticipated movies, is filming in Los Angeles now, and yesterday, the second look at the wild fashion of Margot Robbie's Barbie and Ryan Gosling's Ken on set were released. The two were seen decked out in matching neon pink and yellow skating outfits. Twitter noted that the looks seem to be inspired by 1994's Hot Skatin' Barbie.
A video of Robbie, who is Australian, speaking as Barbie also surfaced on the social media platform, and her very bubbly American accent is striking.
Not much is known about the plot of Barbie yet. Robbie teased herself in an interview with British Vogue last year that the film won't be what people think it'll be.
She admitted that she understands the controversy attached to the project and the doll historically. “Right, it comes with a lot of baggage!” she said with a smile. “And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it.”
“People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t...’” she added, trailing off.
The first official stills of Robbie as Barbie and Gosling as Ken were released on April 26 and June 15 respectively.
Photos of the two in western attire on set surfaced last week. Gosling's black and pink cowboy Ken look, which can be seen here, is particularly crazy. Robbie wore the pink outfit below:
