The actress, who is nominated for a Critics Choice Award for her role as the iconic doll, ditched her traditional Barbie-inspired red-carpet fashions and opted for a sleek modern black gown with cutouts.

Robbie’s dress was designed by Celine and featured a plunging neckline, several ab-baring cutouts and diamond embellishments.

Robbie’s black dress contrasted with her blonde hair and makeup, which were kept simple and elegant. She wore a light smoky eye and pink-ish nude lips to complement her skin tone. She also wore Manolo Blahnik shoes to complete her look.

A Tribute to Barbie’s Fans

Robbie is not the only one who has been bringing some of Barbie’s most iconic looks to life on the red carpet since the movie’s premiere. Her stylist, Andrew Mukamal, has been recreating Barbie’s outfits from different decades, such as 1977 SuperStar Barbie, 1992 Earring Magic Barbie, Solo in the Spotlight Barbie from the ’60s and Brunette Bubble Cut Barbie from 1962.

At the film’s L.A. premiere in July, Robbie told PEOPLE that these nostalgic dresses are a nod to Barbie’s longtime fans. “We’re finding Barbie references from decades past and just doing it really for the big Barbie fans out there, people who are actually collecting those Barbies,” she said. “We’re hoping to get them excited. We’re pairing Barbie references with great designers.”

Her hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett, echoed the same sentiments in his conversation with PEOPLE, adding that they always strive to ensure “Margot’s modern glamour shines through.” “This press tour has been more creative and inspired than anything we’ve done before. Having such a clear and iconic template to build off of has been a dream,” Scarlett told PEOPLE in July.
