It might seem like she popped up on the star scene out of nowhere, but Margot Robbie has actually been around for a while. Long before she starred alongside Leo in The Wolf of Wall Street, the Australian actress was a Ramsay Street regular and spent three years playing Donna Freedman on Neighbours. And my, hasn’t she changed since then.
While we’ve got a major girl crush on Margot, we must admit that we’re a tad envious of her, too. After all, Hollywood’s newest golden girl has been up close and personal with Leo, has tonnes of film offers flooding in (she’s just been cast as Jane Porter in a live-action version of Tarzan), was invited to sit front row with other ‘It’ girls Rihanna, Lupita Nyong’o and Elizabeth Olsen at the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion Week, and (as you can see by her street style snaps) she’s got a killer wardrobe that we’d love to raid.
Do you understand now why we’re a smidge green with envy?
Since our chances of being cast in blockbuster movies alongside Hollywood heartthrobs, or invited to red-carpet events or runway shows, are pretty much slim to none, we figure the best way to ease our envy is to steal this A-list actress’ style. It’s definitely a more practical option, no?
Here, we’ve chosen four signature Margot looks that we think sum up her style – it’s simple, chic, feminine and modern, at times with a dash of understated sexiness thrown in for good measure – and put together several ensembles that are pretty close to the real thing.
So, how did we do? Which look are you eager to try?
