Obsession with Greta Gerwig's forthcoming live action Barbie movie has officially reached fever pitch. The latest set of paparazzi shots to hit the mainstream show Margot Robbie in full neon skater Barbie gear - complete with visor - alongside an equally fluorescent Ryan Gosling as Ken. The movie looks set to debut a version of the Beyond The Pines star and The Notebook sensation that we've never seen before - with a preened, platinum blonde crew cut, double denim and one heck of a glow.

The on-set professional in charge of that 'life in plastic' level tan? Expert Kimberley Nkosi, who gives the inside scoop below:

'For me applying sunless tanner isn't about spraying something on and hoping for the best. It's about a feeling, something more than a look. Plus, when you work on set there's so many things to take into consideration, the camera picks up every little detail and can completely change the appearance of the tan, especially under lights. Being mindful of this and being consistent is key to achieving a flawless tan each and every time. My go-to products to achieve Ryan's golden glow are Isle of Paradise's Tanning Water always in Medium with a touch of Dark to balance his undertone and make sure he's camera-ready. I use the Prep It PH Balancer too.'

Now, don't all charge at once, but yes, Ryan's Ken-worthy fake tan is available in the UK and yes, it's a steal at just £12. Shop the movie must-have below:
