Margot Robbie seems to be everywhere these days. The Oscar-nominated actress stars next as Barbie, our favorite playmate from childhood. Living in her perfect pink world, which fashion designers for the past year have been replicating in their collections -- from Balmain's Barbie line, to Valentino's all Pink season -- Barbie can also boast a fabulous boyfriend named Ken. And in Oscar-nominated writer/director Greta Gerwig's Barbie film, one very blond Ken is played by the fantastic Ryan Gosling. Aughhh, and able to wear heels even to the beach, we think there is no girl luckier than Barbie!
The film also stars Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Michael Cera, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Dua Lipa and Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, among many many more.
Gerwig directed Barbie from a screenplay by Gerwig & Oscar nominee Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story and The Squid and the Whale), based on Barbie by Mattel. The film’s producers are Oscar nominee David Heyman (Marriage Story, Gravity), Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Robbie Brenner, with Michael Sharp, Josey McNamara, Ynon Kreiz, Courtenay Valenti, Toby Emmerich and Cate Adams serving as executive producers.
Gerwig’s creative team behind the camera included Oscar-nominated director of photography Rodrigo Prieto (Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain), with production design by Sarah Greenwood (Beauty and the Beast, Anna Karenina) and costume design by the Oscar-winning Jacqueline Durran (Little Women, Anna Karenina). Music is by Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat and music supervisor George Drakoulias.
People magazine has a really cool feature on all the fun fashions in Barbie, so check it out. And we'll leave you with a favorite shot of Gosling. Yeah, Girl.
