While earlier this week Margot Robbie was a blushing bride in white lace at the New York premiere of her upcoming film, amsterdamwhen it came time to promote the project in Europe, the actress went 180 style. On Wednesday, Robbie arrived at the film’s London premiere in a black vamp look, an unexpected choice for the actress in more ways than one. title.
Robbie walked the red carpet in a monochrome dress by Celine, featuring a form-fitting, ruched top with multiple keyhole cutouts, a slice at the top waist to reveal her abs, and a full skirt. It was the cape, however, wrapped around the actress’ neck and flowing behind her, that really added to the vampiric aesthetic of the look. Capes have proven to be a popular trend on the red carpet lately – they were well represented at the Emmys last week – and now, with Robbie’s approval, it looks like we should get used to seeing the added fabric on the red carpet.
The dress deviates from Robbie’s usual style, mainly because of the designer. The Chanel ambassador hasn’t worn another brand’s look on a big red carpet in about two years, since she wore Dries van Noten to the Birds of prey premiering in 2020. It’s unclear why she decided now to mix things up. It is believed the cast chose to wear black out of respect for Queen Elizabeth’s passing, due to the location of the premiere in London.
Robbie was joined by a few of her co-stars on the carpet, including Christian Bale, Rami Malek and Andrea Riseborough, who also all dressed in black for the occasion. A large number of Amsterdam’s other stars, however, were missing from the event. Anya Taylor-Joy was not present, as she is currently in Australia filming the madmax prequel, Furious. Taylor Swift, who is briefly featured in the film, was also absent from the premiere, but is currently in Nashville, where she just received the songwriter of the decade award at the annual Nashville Songwriter Awards. It’s a shame she couldn’t premiere, because the Michael Kors dress she wore would have been perfect for the all-black red carpet.
