Margot Robbie and Andrew Mukamal: Inside the Making of Barbie: The World Tour Book


Introduction

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, these internet-breaking fashions are being immortalized in Barbie: The World Tour, a coffee-table book by Mukamal and Robbie.

The Making of Barbie: The World Tour

Concept and Inspiration

Andrew Mukamal had the idea for the book during a tour fitting with Margot Robbie, where he collected sketches and fabric swatches from designers. The desire to showcase these unseen looks was heightened by the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, which abruptly cut the tour short.
