The fashion house provided several costumes for the film, for both its star and Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken. Chanel worked with the movie's costume designer Jacqueline Durran, who chose five Barbie outfits, as well as a ski suit for Gosling.
"The Barbie legacy is so intrinsically tied with fashion brands throughout history. Wearing something high fashion definitely feels right for the character.

The Oscar-nominee emphasized the importance of the Chanel clothes that helped her become Barbie. "So it did help get into character, it felt right for the character.

In fact, one of the archival suits I wore had a little label saying 'Claudia' on it. And I was like 'wow.'
