Barbie cast members that dressed like roses for the Critics Choice Awards are not limited to Dua Lipa. Nominee Margot Robbie for Best Actress showed up at the ceremony wearing a unique red Balmain column dress embellished with roses. She accessorized with pieces by Lorraine Schwartz.
In a rare red carpet appearance, her husband Tom Ackerley posed with her. Since the upper portion of the attire closely matches the red dress of the 1996 Barbie Radiant Rose, fans theorized that she might be alluding to the figure.
Robbie used makeup from Chanel Beauty to achieve her look. The look was created by makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who stated that she intended for Robbie’s appearance to be “filled with soft, warm tones to avoid competing with her red dress.”
“I applied a wash of CHANEL N°1 de CHANEL Lip and Cheek Balm Enhances Color in Ardent Brick and buffed it into her cheeks,” Dubroff stated in reference to the products. To complete the look, I used a wash of CHANEL Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Jersey.
There will be eighteen awards for Barbie at tonight’s presentation. Because of her role in the movie, Robbie is a candidate for Best Actress.
Given that various people have varied perspectives on the doll, Robbie discussed how they approached developing a movie about Barbie with Deadline in a cover story that was published earlier this week.
In reality, we had no desire to please or avoid any one person in particular. Every time a character or movie becomes popular and is successful, in my opinion, they are reflecting the audience back to them. We can better comprehend ourselves through art: “I’m now able to make sense of something in my life by analyzing this character and their behavior and the circumstances they’re in.” Making a film feel personal to the viewer is something I believe every film should aim to achieve. It must strike a chord with them.
That is not to claim that everyone sat down and attempted to solve the puzzle the way you have described it. Before I started, all I knew was that there was a chance to accomplish that. It required an exceptionally intelligent someone such as Greta Gerwig to uncover the narrative and work through all of those details. Knowing that she wouldn’t be ignoring the spicier parts was crucial for our writer/director. She wouldn’t be interested in doing that, I knew it. Because an experience cannot be fully created without considering both its positive and negative aspects, she has always desired to investigate both.
The most crucial thing, though, was that it was about finding someone who could do it without making fun of anything, and I always felt that someone should be Greta. In general, it was crucial that it not be ill-intentioned. It had to originate from a loving place at all times. Additionally, I believe the goal was to instill optimism in it. The warmth and the prickly pieces felt like we could hold them in the same hands.
Ultimately, the film is more about other topics than Barbie. Greta, the brilliant one, observed it and said, “Aren’t people weird? They created a doll, and then they became enraged with it. That is really crazy. It’s true that after creating Barbie, we were enraged with her because she spared us from having to become enraged with ourselves. We may yell at her, blame her for all the apparent flaws in the world, and transfer our anger onto her. It’s a lifeless item, you chuckle. That is pretty absurd, isn’t it?
I cannot say that when I pursued the rights for Barbie, all of these ideas were completely developed. However, I was aware that someone might think those things, and I saw the chance and the type of environment where a bright person like Greta Gerwig could thrive.
