Margot Robbie, renowned for her iconic Barbie portrayal, surprised fans by veering away from her signature pink wardrobe in a recent photo shoot for Variety magazine. The 33-year-old actress opted for a full-length dark gown, showcasing a sophisticated and chic style as she ushered in the new year.
The unexpected shift in Robbie’s fashion choice comes as she anticipates the Golden Globes, where her movie “Barbie” has garnered an impressive nine nominations. Reflecting on the unexpected recognition, she shared, “When we finished the press tour, I was like, ‘I guess I’ll throw all the pink out of my wardrobe now.'” Expressing genuine surprise at the turn of events, she humbly added, “But the fact that we’re going to the Golden Globes and all that stuff? I truly did not see that coming. I’m not trying to be modest.”
“Barbie” itself is making waves in the awards circuit with a remarkable 11 nominations, securing its place as the second most-nominated film in Academy history, trailing behind classics like “Cabaret” (1972) and “Nashville” (1975).
Ryan Gosling, who portrayed Robbie’s on-screen boyfriend Ken, is nominated for Best Supporting Actor, while Margot herself is in contention for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy). The competition in her category includes notable names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, and Emma Stone.
Margot Robbie’s shift from the vibrant Barbie aesthetic to an elegant dark gown not only showcases her versatility but also marks a notable moment in her career trajectory. As she navigates the exciting journey through award nominations and recognition, fans eagerly anticipate the Golden Globes to witness Robbie’s continued success on the Hollywood stage.
