Yesterday I posted photos of Margot Robbie and America Ferrera rollerblading on the set of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie. I guess everyone in the movie rollerblades because now we have shots of Ryan Gosling and Will Ferrell also rollerblading and …what is this movie?!
Not getting an answer to that question any time soon but I did ask yesterday about outfit changes and we got one. Margot’s changed out of her pink western-style suit and is now matched with Ryan-Ken in spandex and neon yellow. So my new question is WHEN we’re setting this movie? Like are we in the 80s/early 90s here? This is a distinctly 80s/early 90s look, especially with that print. I know that 80s and 90s fashion is coming back now but the 80s/90s-inspired clothes that we’re seeing now in retail are still grounded in today’s preferred colour-ways and fabrics.
Or…maybe… Barbie doesn’t actually have an era? Barbie isn’t exactly a historical figure or anything, right? So she can exist in any and all time periods concurrently; she is all the timelines! Barbie is the multiverse! And Halloween because the movie has just given us the culture’s new his and hers Halloween costumes.
