Margot Robbie Reinvents Red Carpet Dressing in a Mandarin-Inspired Gucci Gown at the Tarzan Premiere
Who says you have to opt for the run-of-the-mill floor-length dress on the red carpet? Definitely not Margot Robbie, who wisely chose to adopt one of Alessandro Michele’s other-worldly fall 2016 Gucci frocks at the premiere of her soon-to-be summer blockbuster film, The Legend of Tarzan, in L.A. on Monday night.
Ditching her usual bombshell M.O. for something that puts the capital F in fashion, the 25-year-old actress expertly nailed an all-black silk gown that sexily featured a thigh-high slit on one side, along with intricate flower embroidery, fuzzy pink cuffs, and a high Mandarin collar design that, from afar, resembled a traditional Chinese dress. She turned to stylist Kate Young for the affair and paired the one-of-a-kind design with Tiffany & Co. jewels, matching Gucci shoes, and a well-deserved cocktail.
On the runway, the autumnal outfit was styled with a teal hat with a mesh veil, but Robbie said goodbye to the catwalk getup and instead chose another standout accessory: Alexander Skarsgård. Her Tarzan co-star and the movie’s lead man looked nothing but dapper in a navy suit that, unfortunately, hid his insanely ripped physique.
Jane Porter, Robbie’s character in the film, would certainly be proud.
