Margot Robbie’s BAFTA Gown Proves That We Should Never Judge a Dress By Its Front
Just a few days after the London premiere of her latest film, Birds of Prey, Margot Robbie stepped out for the 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall. For the occasion, the Australian star — who is nominated twice in the supporting actress category for her roles in Bombshell and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood — wore a stunning black gown from Chanel's Spring/Summer 2020 Couture collection.
Featuring a full tiered skirt and dramatic lace capelet sleeves that revealed a gorgeous open back, the floor-length gown looked incredibly glamorous, and all in all perfectly in keeping with the rest of the evening's red carpet looks. To finish her ensemble, Margot and her stylist Kate Young opted for pared back accessories, including an adorable black flower ring and a striking pair of diamond earrings.
As the longtime face of Chanel, it is perhaps not so surprising to see Margot returning to the house's designs for such an important occasion — and who could blame her, when the results are always so stunning? After all, who could forget the sequin Chanel trousers she wore during the 2019 Cannes Film Festival? Or the angelic white dress she chose for the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood LA premiere? Or the gown she wore to the 2018 Oscars, which was custom-made by Karl Lagerfeld himself and took over 680 hours to make? Once thing's for sure: Margot and Chanel make one hell of a fashion team.
