Following the box office success of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, it’s no surprise that the perfectly pink film has become one of the standout favourites for the 2024 Academy Awards. 

Touring the film across the world, Margot Robbie’s red carpet style has been flawlessly on theme. Teaming up with stylist Andrew Mukamal, the Australian star delivered a series of on-point recreations of some of the most iconic Barbie looks, making us certain that her 2024 Oscars red carpet look was one of the most highly-anticipated of the night.

While many fans anticipated another perfect Barbie recreation, Margot walked the red carpet in a classic black gown by Versace. 

Complete with chainmail draping and structured corset, Margot accessorised her gown with a large gold cuff bracelet and her signature beachy waves.

During the 2023 Academy Awards, Margot was noticeably absent from the red carpet arrivals, however, she was still present at Hollywood’s night of nights.

Stepping on stage alongside Morgan Freeman to commemorate 100 years of Warner Bros. Pictures, Margot wore a sparkling off-shoulder gown by Giorgio Armani Privé.

Pairing the look with black Manolo Blahnik heels, Margot added an extra sprinkle of glitz with an assortment of diamond jewellery from Lorraine Schwartz.

Attending the Academy Awards as the producer of Best Picture nominee Promising Young Woman, Margot walked the red carpet in a shining silver gown by Chanel. 

“I chose this dress because it has all the craftsmanship and luxury of Chanel, but feels easy and not too fussy,” Margot told Vogue, topping off her look with a full face of Chanel glam by makeup artist Patti Dubroff.

The Australian star also debuted her post-lockdown hair transformation on the red carpet, with her new bangs quickly becoming an inspiration for an effortlessly perfect shaggy style.

Receiving the nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Bombshell, Margot graced the 2020 Academy Awards red carpet in a flowing vintage Chanel strapless gown. 

Speaking to British Vogue, Margot’s former stylist Kate Young shared her insight on the effortless nod to old Hollywood, telling the publication, “Margot is so fun and easygoing, she’s not an untouchable ice princess, and that comes across [in the dress]. It would be weird if she were completely done up.”

Nominated for Best Actress for her standout performance in I, Tonya, Margot took to the Oscars red carpet in the first of many Chanel gowns, with her all-white ensemble drawing inspiration from her film’s icy setting. 

“I wanted it to be couture, the most fancy and luxurious, but also cool,” stylist Kate Young told Vogue, adding, “The plastic handbag and embroidery keep it modern.”

Dressed almost as golden as the Oscar itself, Margot attended the 2016 Academy Awards in an armoured leather gold gown by Tom Ford.

Contrasting the reflective shine of her couture ensemble, Margot accessorised her look with a black tasselled bag by The Row.

Let’s hear it for the back of the dress! Attending her first Academy Awards, a newly brunette Margot strutted the red carpet in an all-black Saint Laurent gown with beaded bodice. 

Topping off the look with simple jewellery and dark lipstick, the star of Margot’s ensemble was arguably the adorable beaded bow detail on the back of her dress.
