Margot Robbie was a vision in blue at the “Babylon” premiere in Sydney, Australia, adding her own flair to a classic Versace gown. The actor, who plays a vaudevillian wild child in Damien Chazelle’s new film, lived up to the Old Hollywood glamour in a sleek look styled by Kate Young. The smooth satin dress featured double spaghetti straps adorned with Versace logo hardware and an elegant scoop neckline. The rest of the gown gathered in a knot at Robbie’s hip, and originally, the 1995 design, first worn by Carla Bruni, only included delicate ruching and a daring thigh-high leg slit. However, Young added a touch of cherry-red lace — most likely as a nod to the bright costuming worn by Robbie’s character — which carried all the way around the perimeter of Robbie’s short train.
Despite the additional fabric, which added a nice contrast to her dress’s icy blue, Robbie kept the rest of the look fairly simple. In line with a puzzling but consistent trend on the red carpet as of late, she skipped most any visible jewelry and kept her nails simple, opting for her favorite supermodel manicure and accessorizing only with a matching pair of baby-blue heels.
For some, this Versace number was a welcome departure from Robbie’s usual Chanel outfits, and fans are hopeful that this could signify a new, more daring era of fashion for Robbie. Read on to see how Robbie put her own twist on this stunning Versace dress, and find out if this is the beginning of her style resurgence.
