Margot Robbie’s Mugler Corset Bodysuit Is Not Your Typical Oscar After-Party Look

Margot Robbie didn’t wear Barbie pink on the Oscars red carpet nor did she bring out one last Barbie-inspired ensemble to the Oscar after-parties. The actress did, however, wear one of the glitziest—and least conventional—outfits on the red carpet. Robbie stepped out at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a stunning gold spring/summer 1996 Mugler corset bodysuit with a gold robe draped over her arms. She wore her blonde hair down.

Robbie’s snub from the Oscars’ Best Actress category for her portrayal of Barbie (while Gosling got a Best Supporting Actor nod for playing Ken) was acknowledged during the ceremony. Host Jimmy Kimmel brought it up in his opening monologue, first pointing out Barbie director Greta Gerwig’s exclusion from the Best Director category, too.

Barbie was a monster hit,” he began. “What a thing, what an achievement. To take a plastic doll nobody even liked Barbie’s a feminist icon thanks to Greta Gerwig, who many believe deserved to be nominated for Best Director.”

As the audience applauded, Kimmel continued, “Hold on a second. I know you’re clapping, but you’re the ones who didn’t vote for her by the way. Don’t act like you had nothing to do with this. And I don’t want to leave out Margot Robbie. Margot put this giant hit together. She did. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are here tonight. Look, kids, it’s Barbie and Ken, sitting just near each other. Ryan and Margot, I want to let you know that even if neither of you wins an Oscar tonight, you both already won something much more important: the genetic lottery.”

Robbie addressed her Oscar snub herself in late January. She expressed more regret over Gerwig being excluded. She said during a SAG screening of Barbie, “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”

“Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director, because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is,” Robbie continued. “But it’s been an incredible year for all the films.”

She also praised the recognition Barbie did get from the Academy: “[I’m] beyond ecstatic that we’ve got eight Academy Award nominations, it’s so wild,” she said. “Everyone getting the nods that they’ve had is just incredible, and the Best Picture nod.”

“We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact,” she continued. “And it’s already done that, and some, way more than we ever dreamed it would. And that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this.”
