Last year, the trendsetter in the world of fashion was undoubtedly the prevalence of all things pink, largely attributed to the impactful Barbie movie directed by Greta Gerwig. In particular, Margot Robbie, who portrayed the film’s leading character, became the ultimate ambassador for this ultra-feminine style. She continuously dazzled on the red carpet in outfits inspired by Barbie, even going so far as to attend the recent Golden Globes in a striking hot-pink Armani Privé V-neck gown adorned with sequins, complemented by a matching pink tulle polka-dot boa. Now, it would appear that Margot is sartorially moving forward, as her latest look embraces a more traditionally chic aesthetic. Check out Margot Robbie’s black dress below.

At the starry Governors Awards on Tuesday night, the Barbie protagonist, alongside names such as Florence Pugh, Natalie Portman and Lily Gladstone, delighted spectators with a glamorous, all-black ensemble. She wore a sleek black floor-length Celine dress adorned with daring cut-outs and crystal-encrusted shoulder straps. Margot maintained a timeless elegance with her choice of vintage Fred Leighton diamond waterfall earrings dating back to the 1950s.

Following an overwhelming saturation of all things pink and numerous brands capitalizing on the trend, fatigue with the #Barbiecore aesthetic is very real. Thankfully, Margot has now aligned her fashion sense with the prevailing sentiment. It’s thrilling to anticipate what other non-pink looks she might have up her sleeves for the remainder of the awards season. Until then, fans are still talking about the actor’s off-duty ensemble seen earlier this week: a slouchy striped shirt, which she paired with comfortable jeans. You can check the look out here.
