Fans of Barbie will have a reason to be happy. The world’s most popular doll is going to get a live action movie! And Margot Robbie will play the lead role!
Robbie is also a co-producer of the movie. This means she not only gets to play in the movie, but also have a say in what goes on
And as someone who has historically shown quite a good and interesting fashion style, it will be interesting if Robbie will bring some of her style to Barbie.
Also, Barbie herself is quite the unique character. Over the decades she has been criticized many times for portraying an unrealistic image both for her body and fashion style. Lately Mattel, the makers of Barbie dolls, have switched things up, using Barbie as a platform to motivate girls to get into different careers, including IT.
Currently, little is known about the plot of the Barbie movie. So, we can’t know which route it will take, although it’s a safe bet it will probably go with a less fashion glamour style and more of an everyday type look and feel.
This probably would mean less vibrant pink and less platforms and sky high heels Barbie is known to rock in her day. But the overall fashion and style will still be very important as it’s a big part of Barbie’s legacy. So, it will be interesting to see how will the movie incorporate that.
