Description


For the press tour following the record-breaking release of Greta Gerwig’s award-winning, acclaimed Barbie movie, producer and star Margot Robbie and her stylist Andrew Mukamal immersed themselves in some of Barbie’s most iconic outfits and curated vintage pieces, then approached designers, from Giorgio Armani to Donatella Versace, to create looks inspired by the doll-size originals. Many of these looks were not seen as the official Barbie press tour was cut short—so Margot and Andrew worked with renowned fashion photographer Craig McDean to shoot her in the looks exactly as they were curated: Schiaparelli in Los Angeles, Vivienne Westwood in London, vintage Chanel with matching Steamline luggage at the airport, and beyond.
 
Accompanying McDean’s sumptuous photography are original Barbie dolls from the period, a treasure trove of rare materials from Mattel’s Barbie fashion archives, and the designers’ sketches and Polaroids from fittings, layered into evocative collages by Fabien Baron, who conceived and produced the shoots and art-directed the book. With text by Margot Robbie and Andrew Mukamal, as well as handwritten contributions from the designers behind the looks (from Olivier Rousteing and Michelle Ochs to Manolo Blahnik and Jeremy Scott), this unique book blends the serious chic of high fashion with the serious fun of Barbie world—the dolls, the history, and the style that have captured imaginations for 65 years.

Praise For…


"They were the looks seen round the world: Margot Robbie in a mini black-and-white Hervé Léger bandage dress, cat-eye sunglasses across her face; Robbie in a fuchsia pencil skirt and matching blazer, a crystal-bedecked Judith Leiber cell-phone clutch in tow; Robbie wearing a ruffle-hem Emilio Pucci dress, long crimped hair cascading down her back. Each look, styled by Andrew Mukamal for the Barbie press tour, defined modern method dressing. Now the internet-breaking fashions are being immortalized in Barbie: The World Tour, a coffee-table book by Mukamal and Robbie, out March 19 from Rizzoli." — Vogue

"We’re living in the age of “Barbie,” and nowhere has that been more evident than the custom fashions Margot Robbie and stylist Andrew Mukamal curated for the billion-dollar grossing movie’s press tour." — Variety

"Pulling inspiration from archive dolls, they aced the assignment indeed. From a black-and-white striped Hervé Legér bandage dress with white cat-eye sunglasses (a spitting image of the original 1959 Barbie) worn in Sydney and “Day to Night” 1985 Barbie-inspired looks by Versace in Seoul, to the pink polka dot Valentino mini dress (inspired by a 2015 “Pink & Fabulous” Barbie) and the sparkling Schiaparelli tulle-hemmed black gown from the movie’s LA premiere, the Barbie press tour looks helped fuel Barbiecore pink’s global fashion takeover." — The Hollywood Reporter

"Robbie will soon retire her run as the do-it-all doll when award season comes to a close, but one thing’s for sure: these looks are fit for the fashion history books. If you’re not ready to leave Barbie world so soon, make sure to pre-order the all-encompassing catalog for a behind-the-scenes look of Robbie’s dazzling Barbie fashion — before it sells out upon release." — Women's Wear Daily

"Alongside the outfits, Barbie: The World Tour features the original Barbie dolls that these looks are based on, material from Mattel’s Barbie fashion archives, designers’ sketches, Polaroids from fittings, text from Robbie and Mukamal, and handwritten contributions from designers. All of these awesome pieces come together in a collage format to make it the only fashion book you’ll ever need! Barbie: The World Tour is the perfect gift for fans of fashion and longtime Barbie lovers." — Pop Insider

"And right when fans were still reveling her performance as Barbie, they became the recipients of an extraordinary gift: A book that proves that Robbie is, indeed, The Ultimate Barbie Girl. As expected, fans are, most certainly, going crazy about the book even before its release." — Fandom Wire

"Margot Robbie’s iconic Barbie press tour outfits were some of the most coveted looks of 2023. Soon, fans can buy a book that immortalizes all of them. Barbie: The World Tour will feature never-before-seen looks that Robbie was unable to wear on the Barbie press tour due to the writers and actors strikes in 2023. It will also include design sketches of some of Robbie’s most iconic Barbie-inspired looks, Polaroid photos and images taken directly from Mattel’s archives." — US Weekly

“The Barbie-mania isn't over yet. Today, Mattel and Rizzoli announced a new book, Barbie: The World Tour, featuring "all the glamour and high style of the most popular doll in the world," following Margot Robbie's style on her press tour, where she channeled some of the doll's famous fashions.” — Town & Country

“If you’re still on a Barbie high and can’t seem to get enough of the pink-laden fashion moments we’ve been served over the past year, this news is for you. On March 8, style-focused illustrated book Barbie: The World Tour is hitting shelves, aiming to satiate your appetite for the iconic doll and the record-breaking movie.” — The Zoe Report

"Fashion enthusiasts and Barbiecore fans, rejoice. Barbie: The World Tour is set to hit shelves on March 8, 2024, offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the iconic outfits Margot Robbie sported during her global Barbie press tour. As the release date approaches, anticipation builds for a book that promises to be as enchanting as the press tour that inspired it." — Hello Magazine
