Dua Lipa channelled her character Mermaid Barbie with a completely bare Bottega Veneta fishnet dress for the Barbie premiere, which is leaving fans in total awe.
The highly anticipated Barbie movie has finally hit the big screen, and while thousands of fans are singing its praises online, there are a handful of people that are slating the flick.
However, the review bombing campaign has taken a back seat as everyone is talking about Dua Lipa’s latest get-up.
The film is undoubtedly one of the biggest movie releases in recent years, and it’s no surprise really when you look at the absolutely dazzling cast, the critically acclaimed writing and directing team, and the fact that it’s all about one of the most iconic toys to ever grace this planet.
When the trailer dropped earlier this year and gave us an exciting glimpse into the world of plastic fantastic, there was one detail in particular that fans couldn’t get over – Margot Robbie’s feet!
Fans said the moment you saw her step out of her heels was ‘so iconic’, as the actress’ feet don’t change from their tiptoe position, just like the doll is always on her tiptoes.
One person called it ‘the most genius shot’ they’ve ever seen.
Another wrote: “Yes yes yes i agree! This is a universal and nostalgic core memory of little girls with their Barbie dolls. Personally, this is the first thing I remember about playing with my Barbie: the barely-touching-ground feet and fluffy pink sandals/heels. This is a perfect opening shot.”
A third said over the top of a snap of the shot: “This one screenshot has become my entire personality.”
Robbie herself even responded to all the hype around her feet.
She told Cinema Blend: “The very first time I Googled myself, you know how when you type something into Google and it predicts what the rest of it is going to be?
“I’d started working and I was on some things and I hadn’t Googled myself before, and so I wrote in ‘Margot Robbie’ and before I finished writing ‘Robbie,’ ‘Margot Robbie feet’ came up.”
Although you might assume this would creep the actress out, her response is quite the contrary.
“I think that’s lovely. I am [flattered], genuinely. I don’t feel weird about it. I am actually like, that’s nice,” she said.
But now the film has actually hit cinemas, it seems a large section of the internet is unhappy with the movie…
While the flick has received an incredible response from fans online, there are a few angry men that can’t help but slate the film and its alleged “man-hating agenda.”
One blogger wrote on Rotten Tomatoes: “For the first 30 minutes or so Barbie is a fun, feather-weight satire…Then the stuff about patriarchy kicks in and the film turns into a thinly disguised #metoo rant, trading comedy for man-bashing and a lot of confused point-scoring about sexism.”
Another added: “Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling can’t save story captured by man-hating agenda.”
Over on IMDB, it was the same story, with one viewer writing that Barbie was “a shameful piece of cinema, unless you’re of a certain ideological bent, in which case you’ll love it. For everyone else: Avoid like the plague.”
These negative reviews are seriously skewing the film’s audience score on the site, with Screen Rant reporting that it had dropped to just seventy-three percent for the unverified audience score. This is a far cry from the movie’s official score of eighty-eight percent, which is made up from users with a verified ticket for the film.
However, that isn’t the only thing that people are discussing online. Dua Lipa has stolen the show, leaving fans in awe after she turned up to the premier in a nude fishnet dress by Bottega Veneta. The only accessories she wore were a white Hanky Panky thong and a solitary diamond strand.
Dozens commented on her stunning get-up online, with one writing on Instagram: “One of the most beautiful women in the world.”
While another gushed: “Dua lipa is glowing.”
