The Barbie premiere took place last night and celebrities marked the occasion by bringing their best 'Barbiecore' selves to the celebration.

Margot Robbie played homage to her toy alter ego by rocking up as a real live barbie doll in cinched-in, pale pink satin bodice gown by Vivienne Westwood, while Dua Lipa kept up her recent chainmail theme in a stunning multi-coloured midi dress.

Sam Smith on the other hand decided to go off brand with their styling, opting to shun the sparkles, sequins and shocking pink for something equally eye-catching.

Standing out from the crowd, the Stay With Me singer, instead went for an oversized sweatshirt and super baggy jeans to make their appearance on the pink carpet.

The star, whose single Man I Am features in the film’s soundtrack, certainly made a statement with their look which featured a 16 XL emblazoned jumper and wide-legged jeans from the Vetements spring-summer 2024 collection.

Sharing a series of images of the night to Instagram, Smith captioned the shots simply: "16 XL Barbie".

Fans were somewhat divided by the look, with some believing it fell too much outside the typical aesthetic.

"Whoever advised u to wear and whoever said the fit was ok need to be jailed," one user commented.

"This gives me flashback nightmares to high school and rainy days and soaked pants all day long," one user joked. "Madness," yet another user added simply.

Others, however, were feeling Smith's sartorial choice. "My kind of Barbie," one user wrote.

"This look is EVERYTHING," another added. "Sam your outfit is gorgeous," yet another commented.

The singer previously revealed how excited they were to be invited to feature on the Barbie soundtrack.

"I cannot begin to express how incredibly excited I am to be a part of the soundtrack to this already iconic film," they wrote on Instagram.

"I was invited by the incredible [Mark Ronson] and Greta Gerwig to write a song from the perspective of Ken for one of the scenes and we honestly had so much fun with this. I cannot wait for you to hear what we’ve created together."

Never one to keep it low-key on a red carpet, Smith has had their fair share of viral looks this year. Back in February their latex balloon body suit was hailed by many as THE most iconic look of the Brits red carpet.

And at this year's Grammy's the artist caused quite a stir arriving with an entourage, including RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Violet Chachki and Gottmik, and sporting a head-to-toe red ensemble, complete with an oversized cape, top hat, cane and red mesh over their eyes.
