The two held hands and Robbie helped Minaj straighten her wrap skirt for the cameras.

The rapper said Go to Hollywood at the premiere, “It’s a dream come true, a full-circle moment. I couldn’t really afford Barbies when I was little… so now I’m part of a whole Barbie movement.

Robbie leads the cast in the title role, while Minaj contributed the song “Barbie World” featuring Ice Spice and Aqua to the soundtrack.

The rest of the cast also hit the pink carpet, including Ryan Gosling who plays Ken; Issa Rae who plays President Barbie; Alexandra Shipp who plays the Barbie writer; Kate McKinnon who plays Weird Barbie; America Ferrera plays a Mattel employee; and Dua Lipa who plays Mermaid Barbie and contributed the song “Dance the Night” to the soundtrack.

Filmmaker Greta Gerwig (Little Women, Lady Bird), directed the film from a script she co-wrote with partner Noah Baumbach.

Gerwig spoke with The Hollywood Reporter Sunday and said she wanted the script to be “outrageous.”

“We wrote it at such a precise time, in the middle of the lockdown and everything, and I was like, I don’t even know if there are going to be movies again, but if there are , let’s write the most outrageous, anarchic, hilarious thing,” she said. “It was something where I decided I had to direct it once the script was written and it really felt like I just wanted to do that one, that was that one. So I was like we couldn’t do it, it’s ok, but I hope they let us.

The film was shot on Warner Bros. land. in England and at the Venice Beach Skatepark in Los Angeles.

It opens in domestic theaters on July 21 and internationally on July 19.
