There’s still more to see from director Greta Gerwig’s award–winning film, mainly, the fashion! A new book, ‘Barbie:The World Tour’ (pre-order on sale for $49.50; regularly $55), will be released on March 19 by Rizzoli and features Barbie star and executive producer Margot Robbie’s whirlwind press tour looks, including outfits that didn’t make it to the pink carpets when the publicity was cut short by the writers and actors strikes. What we’ve seen from insider images of this fashion juggernaut is that the strikes truly robbed us of some iconic Barbie looks for Margot Robbie.

The 160-page fashion book also includes rare images from Mattel’s archives, designer sketches, Polaroid photos and more from Barbie’s whimsical world, all presented in collages by art director Fabien Baron. Robbie and Mukamal also contribute their own words to the book, which creates a personal touch as you peruse through what could have been.

“This book is the culmination of tens of thousands of hours of work by some of the most talented and creative visionaries and designers on Earth,” Mukamal says in a statement. “Margot and I felt compelled to share this with the world. We hope you love it as much as we do.”

You’ll come to see as you look through the book how Robbie and Mukamal worked closely with Chanel, Donatella Versace, Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, former Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott and many more luxury houses and designers to recreate Barbie’s vintage looks with high-fashion flair.

The fashion selection fromt he collection that was Margot Robbie’s Barbie tour pulls inspiration from archive dolls, they aced the assignment indeed. From a black-and-white striped Hervé Legér bandage dress with white cat-eye sunglasses (a spitting image of the original 1959 Barbie) worn in Sydney, Australia, and “Day to Night” 1985 Barbie-inspired looks by Versace in Seoul to the pink polka dot Valentino mini dress (inspired by a 2015 “Pink & Fabulous” Barbie) and the sparkling Schiaparelli tulle-hemmed black gown from the movie’s L.A. premiere, the Barbie press tour looks helped fuel Barbiecore‘s global fashion takeover.
