Margot Robbie recently wowed the world, looking stunning as she travels the world on a mega press tour ahead of her latest movie Barbie hitting screens next week.
The Australian-born actress, 33, pulled from the archives of Versace, Manolo Blahnik and Chanel to recreate incredible vintage looks with a clear nod to the original Barbie doll.
And for many fashion watchers, the photo calls are a welcome change for the Oscar-nominee, who has been criticized for her red carpet looks over the years.
Despite regularly topping lists of the world’s most beautiful women, Margot has found herself on many worst-dressed lists, with many fashion observers blaming her deal with Chanel and stylist Kate Young for her red carpet failure.
However, since the release of the Greta Gerwig movie, Margot – working with new stylist Andrew Mukamal – has completely transformed her style and established herself as a modern fashion icon.
Gone are over-the-top accessories, sparkly frills and contrasting colors.
Margot instead now opts for sleeker looks, often with no accessories to pay homage to fashion greats and models, managing to nail the barbicore, while still being refined and sleek.

Over the past five years, critics have heckled her outfits online, with many calling for her stylist Kate Young to be ‘released’ from her contract with Chanel.
While no official contract details have been released, some speculated that her contract with the brand was over when she wore an emerald green Bottega Veneta dress to the Governors Awards in November, which was described at the time as her ‘. Best look ever’.
A few days later, he was papped leaving a New York City hotel in a Proenza Scholar power suit and an oversized Bottega blazer.
She wore a flowing charcoal Céline dress to Amsterdam’s European premiere in London in September, with fans taking to TikTok to celebrate ‘the end of her Chanel era’ at the time.
Over the past five years, critics have hexed her outfits online, with many calling for her stylist Kate Young to be ‘released’ from her contract with Chanel (now on the left in 2019).
However, the I, Tonya star returned to the Golden Globes in January with a Chanel look, which disappointed some die-hard fashionistas.
‘Margot Robbie’s stylist knows she’ll break the internet and everyone will be jealous of her as the most stunning woman in the world, so he lets her wear ugly clothes to protect us,’ one fan joked.
Yet since promoting the Barbie tour, Margot has gone from strength to strength with her looks.
She looked simply stunning in a light pink Vivienne Westwood Couture dress that cinched at the waist with a corseted bodice before slipping into a chic train at the London premiere.
The custom dress was a special development for Margot from the Vivienne Westwood 2023 Couture collection Moonlight gown – a corseted asymmetric look with defined drapery, reminiscent of ancient Greek statues.
Some fans have even speculated that Margot deliberately dresses badly to distract from her beauty, thereby encouraging people to take her more seriously as an actress (left now in 2020).
Afterward, she left the party in a custom Dilara Findikoglu satin mini corset dress featuring a flattering bandeau necklace, boned choker and alluring lace back.

She’s wearing a Moschino suit, while she opted for a Balmain look to be a 90s Barbie.
It’s a far cry from the days when she was branded one of the worst dressed in tinsel town.
In 2020, celebrity stylist Elliot Garnott named Margot as his ‘worst dressed’ Australian star in Hollywood.
The satirist took part in an episode of The Lady Bunch hosted by Rosalia Russian, where she dramatically asked the former Neighbors star to ‘call her’.
Now a wild theory is doing the rounds on Twitter that the 33-year-old is deliberately dressed badly to distract from her beauty, prompting people to take her more seriously as an actress.
‘Your stylist is literally king torturing you. You look like an old curmudgeon!’ she said.

In January, discussing a custom-made version of a vintage Versace gown she wore to the Sydney premiere of Babylon – a fan suggested Margot didn’t want to come across as ‘too pretty’ to get a variety of roles.
‘My theory is she does it to hide her beauty so she still has attractive opportunities,’ they speculated on Twitter.
‘Can you imagine if she likes to play with her beauty and brilliance?

The Australian 33-year-old worked with her stylist Andrew Mukamal to recreate the strapless trumpet gown, peep-toe kitten heels, opera gloves and diamond choker on the original 1960 Barbie ‘Solo in the Spotlight’ doll.
‘She is set to play Barbie but we know the movie is going to be free, like Margot’s glam squad.’
Margot began her career as teen heartthrob Donna Friedman in Neighbors before getting her big break opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
In the Martin Scorsese-directed movie, she played Naomi LaPaglia, DiCaprio’s boisterous and flirtatious wife, and quickly gained fame for the film’s sex scenes.
Three years later she cemented her status as one of the hottest women in Hollywood after landing the role of Harley Quinn in 2016’s Suicide Squad.

But after several suggestive roles, Margot said she didn’t want to be seen as ‘just sexy’ and chose to play the complex Tonya Harding in the 2016 biopic I, Tonya, which earned her an Oscar nomination.
In an interview with Woman’s Day that year, the actress-turned-producer talked about her desire not to fall into a certain stereotype because of her sex appeal.
She says, ‘I like to look for roles where the character has a core interest and is more important in moving a story forward than her relationship with the male character.’
‘Films like The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus have given me the opportunity to play women who are charismatic and clever, although they have a glamorous side.’
