It's finally here guys! The highly-anticipated film finally hits screens today and before I write my review, let's recap this EPIC press tour that was the Barbie's thanks to Margot Robbie's commitment to the movie and character + the amazing job of her new stylist Andrew Mukamal, who pulled out all the stops, referencing specific Barbie dolls outfits from years gone by, and delighting fans (myself included) in the process. From vintage Chanel and Versace to custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture and Vivienne Westwood... All the stunning looks and the retro references (following a Red Carpet trend we've talked  about before) are here for you:

For the European 'Barbie' premiere held in London, Margot Robbie chose to wear a Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, modeled inspired by the "Enchanted Evening" Mattel doll from 1990.

Back in 2007 Vivienne Westwood banned fur from all her lines, for the look Andreas Kronthaler replaced the fur stole with a ruffled neckline for the romantic vision.

Speaking of a Barbie moment... To the Seoul premiere, our eternal Harley Quinn wore a Versace suit based on a 1985 Barbie doll called 'Day to Night'.

The original doll was sold in a two-piece suit, but her jacket could be removed and her skirt reversed so she was in a party dress.

The shoes was also created for the premiere: Manolo Blahnik gave a Barbie makeover to the brand's beloved Irene pumps: a pointed court shoe, in white with a hot pink toe cap and a hot pink heel.
