The Greta Gerwig ‘Barbie’ Movie Costumes Are EVERYTHING

Margot Robbie as Barbie in a pink car

There are few things giving me joy right now in the way that the pictures from Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie are. Let me explain: Margot Robbie is Barbie, and Ryan Gosling is Ken, and they’re just the beginning of an all-star cast that has been baffling us online. And now that we’ve gotten more pictures of Robbie and Gosling in action, I have decided that this movie is going to completely break me as a person in the best of ways, and I cannot wait.

We don’t know much about the movie other than there seems to be multiple versions of Barbie, and that we’re getting some iconic Barbie looks (Margot Robbie in bright pink and athletic clothes being a staple of the late ’80s/’90s version of the toy). It’s bright, it’s colorful, and it’s exciting, and I can’t wait to learn more about it. But right now, the internet is screaming about pictures from the set.

Before we get into the roller-skating masterpieces of Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie, let’s talk a bit about who we can expect to see in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.

The cast

Outside of Robbie and Gosling, the cast of Barbie is filled with amazing performers. We have Sex Education co-stars Emma Mackey and Ncuti Gatwa in the cast, and Gatwa’s inclusion also inspired Gosling to head to set in a bootleg shirt of Gatwa as the new Doctor on Doctor Who.

As if that cast weren’t enough, we also have Rhea Perlman, Scott Evans, Michael Cera, Alexandra Shipp, Simu Liu, and more. Yes, more. It’s just stacked, and even though we don’t know much about the movie, the cast alone is enough to get me excited—and that was before the set pictures that we DO have now.

Skate away Barbie

We got a look at Barbie and Ken in all their neon glory as the two are skating at the beach in such a look that I truly just screamed out “me and who??” and I stand by it.

This was the second look of the day for Robbie, who was also in a bright pink bellbottom look that had Will Ferrell chasing after her.

The looks did give fans a lot to talk about in terms of what they want the movie to be, like writer Chase Mitchell making an absolutely brilliant point about how this movie could easily go into vibes that existed in The Brady Bunch Movie from the ’90s.

This all just is another edition of “Help me, the Barbie movie is all I can think about.”

We might not know that much about it, but frankly, I don’t really care. The movie could just be 2 hours of everyone skating around in these outfits with Will Ferrell chasing after them, and I’d love it. It’s Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, so we know it’s going to be a fun time regardless, and I just can’t wait to see what in the world Barbie has in store for us.
