‘Barbie’ movie’s costume designer is an Oscar winner


By now, you’ve probably seen the ’80s-inspired neon rollerskating outfits Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling sported on the live-action “Barbie” movie set.

The movie’s viral outfits are the vision of Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran, Variety confirmed Tuesday. The wardrobe specialist has won two Academy Awards and also worked with “Barbie” co-writer and director, Greta Gerwig, on “Little Women.”

So far, the Internet can’t get enough of Durran’s latest work. Fans first got a glimpse of Robbie, 31, as the iconic plastic “Barbie” in April when Warner Brothers released a still of the “Birds of Prey” actress looking nothing like her villainess Harley Quinn character.

In the pic, a smiley Robbie sits in a pretty pink convertible donning a blue polka dot headband — and a big smile.

Social media lost its mind earlier this month when Warner Bros. released the first photo of Gosling, 41, as Ken. The actor has bleach blonde hair, a spray tan and abs for days in the now-viral still.

Over the weekend, paparazzi shot photos of the real-life Barbie and Ken together on set at the beach in Venice, California. Just days before sporting neon green rollerskates and colorful visors, the pair wore matching cowboy outfits and lit social media on fire.

Official plot details for the movie have yet to be released, but America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, and Michael Cera will appear in the film.

“Barbie” hits theaters on July 21, 2023.
