With each and every one of her Barbie press tour ensembles, America Ferrera delivered a performance that was nothing short of spectacular.

The actress, whose personal stylist is Karla Welch, wore a wide variety of outfits for the premiere of the film, ranging from a baby pink St. John two-piece set for the international premiere to a fiery body-hugging Alex Perry dress for the European premiere.

Ferrera, on the other hand, singled out one particular ensemble as her greatest favorite, which is quite a statement considering that each and every look was absolutely stunning.

“I’ve had a lot of favorite Barbie fashion moments,”  Ferrera says in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE. I am really fortunate to have Karla Welch as my stylist. It was a lot of fun to be with each other.

Ferrera, who plays Gloria in the film that is led by Margot Robbie, cites her all-leather costume that she wore to a Barbie press conference in Seoul, South Korea, on July 3 as her favorite wardrobe from the summer.

Ferrera recalls, “I just loved it so much,” referring to the Tanya Taylor top and the Veronica Beard jeans that she bought. It is quite difficult for me to choose because I have a lot of different costumes that I really like. On the other hand, I can recall putting this on and thinking to myself, “This is exactly how I feel.”

Ferrera kept her hair pulled back and sported a vibrant pink lip as she wore the ensemble, which was worn with a black belt and black platform heels. In addition to that, she adorned herself with gold jewelry by Jennifer Meyer.

A carousel of photographs of the actress at the time was posted on Instagram by Welch, who captioned the post with the phrase “America the BEAUTIFUL.” Ferrera left a gushing remark that read, “I love you, my Queen.” The post was shared on July 4, which was a convenient day.

 

The dramatic leather outfit, together with the hair and makeup, made Ferrera feel like a “badass,” and she added, “I felt strong.” Ferrera shared this information with people after the interview.

“Although I adore donning dresses, there’s something about pants and heels that elevates my stature; at a staggering 5’2”, Ferrera continues, “I particularly enjoy donning high heels; however, an impeccable pair of pants seems to reflect my true inner beauty.” “It’s like pants and heels are the perfect combination of pants and heels.”

 

The fact that [Karla] never puts clothing on me is one of the things that makes her so amazing. She consistently assists me in achieving the feelings that I desire to experience. There are moments when that is gentle and feminine, and there are other times when it is va va voom.

On the other hand, there are instances when it’s like a badass boss dress-up. I’d argue that wearing a badass pantsuit is probably the one thing that makes me feel the most like myself.

The fact that Ferrera and Welch have been working together for more than a decade has allowed them to reach a stage where they are able to collaborate without problems. Ferrera claims that Welch is able to help bring out the best in her due to the fact that they work together. In addition to that, she is a pushover.

“There are times when Karla inspires me to be brave,” she acknowledges. It’s possible that I’ve never done full leather before, but I’m not sure. This attire made me feel absolutely wonderful.
