Greta Gerwig has mostly avoided wearing any magenta hues during the press tour of her highly anticipated film Barbie, which opens in theaters on July 21. Despite being one of the main driving forces behind the world’s current Barbiecore craze and obsession with everything pink, Gerwig has not worn any magenta hues until now.
On Sunday night, Gerwig showed up at the ritzy Los Angeles Barbie debut wearing head-to-toe Valentino pink (Otherwise known as the pink, everything being equal). The director donned a bubblegum blouse without the bow and with a pussy-bow neckline for the occasion. She only looped the blouse once so that the rest of the fabric fell down her midsection. She added a matching blazer that rested on top of her shoulders and tucked the top into a matching floor-length skirt that let her pointy-toe studded pumps show through the hem.
Gerwig accessorized with diamond chandelier earrings and a pink Valentino baguette bag, as you probably guessed. Her simple makeup included rosy cheeks and a subtle pink lip, and her blonde lob was styled in middle-parted, effortless waves.
Gerwig went with a much more muted color scheme of grays, beiges, and blacks at other stops on the press tour. Gerwig wore a beige pleated skirt with a shin-length Prada sweater and black pointy-toe slides at a photo call last month. Conversely, Margot Robbie made an appearance to similar occasion in another right on target diversion of one of the famous doll’s looks.
Gerwig talked about writing the movie that could easily be called the year’s best and the pressures that come with it in a recent interview with The Guardian.
She explained, “It’s not like a superhero, who already has a story.” It seemed a lot of like being an adaptation was going. Except that we were adapting a doll, a 20th-century icon. It seemed strange, sticky, and complicated enough that maybe there was something interesting there to be found.
