Margot Robbie nailed Barbie-chic on Tuesday as she promoted her highly anticipated new movie with co-star Ryan Gosling and director Greta Gerwig at CinemaCon.

The 32-year-old Australian actress wowed at the event in a baby pink ensemble that showed off her incredibly toned physique.

Margot posed with her co-star Ryan, 42, who will play a version of Ken doll in the new original film.

Paying homage to the film’s director – Ryan opened his bright pink jacket to reveal a white T-shirt with Greta Gerwig’s name emblazoned on it in classic Barbie font.

The duo were joined by director Greta, Margot’s producer husband Tom Ackerley, Ugly Better America star Ferrera and producer David Heyman at the event held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Although Greta, 39, was photographed making the film on location all in pink, when it came to CinemaCon, she decided to dress more formally.

Reunited for the second day of CinemaCon, the group stopped for photos to promote the upcoming project – which is set for release on July 21, 2023.

After a first teaser that paid homage to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, fans have now been able to discover the dazzling world of “Barbieland”.

In what appears to be a fish-out-of-water comedy, Margot’s Barbie is seen having fun with Ryan’s Ken in a hyper-real Barbie-inspired world – dubbed “Barbieland” – where there are many iterations of the existing iconic dolls .

Playing off the original premise of what the Mattel dolls would do if left on their own, the teaser features a comedic scene between Ryan and Margot about spending the night together.

“Thought I could stay tonight,” Ryan’s Ken asks Margot’s Barbie. ‘To do what?’ she answers innocently.

However, their plastic-fantasy life is turned upside down (literally) when they are seen traveling through the “real world” in a car that spins through the air.

Will Ferrell is also seen playing the CEO of the toy company as he brings his characters to life, welcoming them into civilization.

The film is based on Mattel’s line of fashion dolls, where Mattell CEO Ynon Kreiz said the company expects the Barbie product to continue to grow, adding, “We couldn’t be more excited about the Barbie’s long-term outlook.”

The Barbie brand generated over £1billion in gross sales last year and the doll turned 64 this week, making her original debut on March 9, 1959.

Previously speaking about turning the iconic Barbie doll into a movie, she told British Vogue in 2021, “She comes with a lot of baggage!”

“And a lot of nostalgic connections. But it comes with a lot of exciting ways to attack it.

“People usually hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what this movie is going to be,’ and then they hear Greta Gerwig writing it and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t know “y…”
