For the photoshoot, Robbie was dressed in Western Barbie-inspired clothing, sporting a Maison Margiela shirt and Kelsey Randall hat. Despite her role as the iconic doll in the upcoming movie set to release on July 21, she confessed to Vogue that she doesn’t recall owning a Barbie during her childhood. She mentioned that her cousin had several Barbies, which she played with during her visits to their house. Besides acting, the Australian actress, who flaunted a pink-and-black polka dot Valentino dress in one of the pictures, also produced the film and secured the rights from the toy company Mattel.

Explaining her role in the upcoming Barbie movie, the actress shared that she never really thought about playing the iconic character until much later in the project’s development. She also delved deeper into the character’s wardrobe choices, particularly the seemingly sexy outfits, noting that Barbie is only a plastic doll without organs or reproductive organs.

In a recent interview, actress Margot Robbie discussed the sexualization of Barbie dolls. Despite being sexualized in some ways, Robbie believes that Barbie shouldn’t be seen as a sexual object as she doesn’t possess the necessary physical traits to feel sexual desire. Instead, Barbie should be viewed as a symbol of girl power, wearing fun and colorful clothing for her own enjoyment rather than to please others.
