Margot Robbie attended the 93rd Academy Awards Sunday night, completely transformed. She looked different as she let her usual icy-blonde hair go and instead went for a softer tousled look featuring a full fringe.
The 93rd Academy Awards were held on 25th April, two months later than initially planned. There was no red carpet, a restrictive guest list, and a low-profile venue, and the Oscars weren’t the same. But what the show lacked in glamour, the stars dressed to perfection and made up for.
Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment produced the Best Picture nominated Promising Young Woman.
The Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood star replaced her signature icy-blonde hair for a side-part in a softer biscuit-blonde hue. Her blunt brow-grazing fringe, soft face-framing waves and low ponytail complimented her look perfectly. Robbie wore a floral sleeveless Chanel gown and posed on the red carpet. She finished the look with a glittery black clutch.
One of her fans wrote on Twitter: “Margot Robbie’s hair/bangs combo is going to live rent-free in my head for the foreseeable future.”
The 30-years old actress also attended the Golden Globes as a presenter earlier this year. Robbie spoke about how her company aims to elevate female storytellers, along with what she saw in Promising Young Woman, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in December 2020.
Robbie explained that she didn’t start a company to be a starring vehicle for her or to be a platform for her to chase her dreams. Her team wanted to expand what female stories and female storytellers could do in this industry, and she didn’t need to be onscreen for that to happen. Her platform can also open some of those doors, which puts it in a great position. In the beginning, there were many first- and second-time filmmakers that her team wanted to work with, and you can’t get something greenlit without a bankable name attached, and she considers herself lucky. However, she feels she isn’t right for every role like she wasn’t right for Promising Young Woman.
People expected Robbie to be cast, but the most delightful thing about Promising Young Woman is that it takes them by surprise. She said, “Carey Mulligan is an actress that has this air of prestige around her. She’s in period dramas. Throw her in Promising Young Woman, and people’s minds get blown.” Carey Mulligan was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Promising Young Woman.
Robbie wasn’t the only actress to choose a new hair look at the Oscars this year. Oscar-winner Halle Berry also rocked a daring asymmetrical bob with a micro-fringe.
