The ‘Barbie’ film hit the billion-dollar mark 17 days after it was released, according to distributor Warner Bros, who released a statement on Sunday, stating that it finished the weekend with $1.03bn (£808m) in ticket sales at the global box office.
This means that Greta Gerwig has become the first woman to reach the milestone as a solo director.
Warner Bros described it as a “watershed moment”.
So, what better time to look back on her ‘Barbie’ promo tour, which I was expecting to be a total suit snooze fest, but I was pleasantly surprised that she embraced not only looks that weren’t her usual directorial tailoring, but the colour pink as well. More than once.
Black pumps, and Prada pleats were her go-to for photocalls, while flutter sleeves and capes were her M.O. for premieres.
This is likely to be an unpopular opinion, but I love her Valentino Pink PP look.
Yes. It’s so 2022, and by this time it had been done to death. But for me, it was her most modern, colourful, and on theme look of the tour.
Stylist: Kate Young.
