Margot Robbie has been on the publicity trail for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood for months, and yet our very own Australian icon has not put a fashionable foot wrong.

In the last two days alone, Robbie has worn three chic summer looks with a retro twist, paying homage to her character in the film, 1960s Hollywood actress Sharon Tate.

Case in point: In Berlin on Thursday morning, Margot wore a silk, maxi-length marigold dress with a bustier top from Rosie Assoulin’s Resort 2020 collection (above).

Just a few hours later, Margot upped the ante on the red carpet at the film’s German premiere at Postdamer Platz. She opted for an olive-green Jacquemus gown from the Spring 2020 collection,  again the right combination of retro, summer and chic.

A day earlier in London, apparently tiring of all the dresses, Robbie arrived at a photo call with co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt and director Quentin Tarantino in a pale yellow billowy blouse tucked into white high-waisted jeans, both from Doen.

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood promotional tour hasn’t been without controversy.

At the Cannes Film Festival in May, Robbie was forced to defend her relative lack of dialogue in the film after Tarantino snapped at a reporter over a question about it.

I think the moments that I got onscreen gave an opportunity to honor Sharon and the lightness,” the Australian actress said.

“The tragedy, ultimately, was the loss of innocence, and to really show those wonderful sides of her, I think, could be adequately done without speaking,” she noted.

“I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character, even without dialogue specifically, which is an interesting thing.

“Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character, going through a day-to-day existence … [I] actually really appreciated the exercise and felt that I could deliver what I wanted to onscreen.”
