Margot Robbie is a real-life Barbie, but her co-stars are not feeling the pink vibe

Margot Robbie knows how to dress for the occasion. The Australian star, who plays the iconic doll in the upcoming movie “Barbie”, showed up at a photocall in Los Angeles on Sunday in a pink polka-dot minidress that was inspired by one of Barbie’s original outfits. She even accessorized with a yellow quilted purse and a pearl bracelet, just like the toy.

But while Robbie looked like she stepped out of a dreamhouse, her co-stars seemed to have missed the memo. Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken, opted for a beige cardigan and jeans, while director Greta Gerwig wore a matching beige sweater and skirt. Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, and America Ferrera also went for neutral tones, and only Michael Cera added a touch of color with a blue jacket.

Here’s the image in question.

Fans on social media were quick to notice the contrast between Robbie and the rest of the cast, and wondered why they didn’t dress more on theme. Some praised Robbie for embracing her character, while others joked that the beige outfits were intentional to make her stand out more.

“Only Margot knows her assignment. That’s why she’s Barbie,” one user tweeted.

“What’s going on with all the sad beige?” another asked.

“Did they confused [sic] the movies? Did they forget they are in the #Barbie and not in the #Oppenheimer?”

Some even suggested that Robbie should have shared her wardrobe with her co-stars, or that they should have gone home and changed.

“why is margot the only one in pink… make them go home and change,” one user wrote.

The movie, which is set to be released on July 21, follows Barbie as she gets expelled from Barbieland for not being perfect enough. She then embarks on an adventure in the real world, where she learns to embrace her flaws and find her true self.

Robbie has been promoting the film with a series of pink outfits, including a sequined jumpsuit, a feathered gown, and a tulle dress. She also gave fans a tour of Barbie’s house in a video for Architectural Digest, where she revealed the pink kitchen, bedroom, and pool.

Gerwig, who co-wrote and directed the film, said that she had many meetings about finding the right shade of pink for the movie.

“We sat with all these different kinds of pinks and we were like, ‘What is the pink? How do the pinks interact?’ ” she said in the video.
