Margot Robbie channels the ‘60s on the Cannes red carpet

In a not-so-subtle nod to her latest movie character

BeautyCrew Beauty Editor / May 27 2019

Margot Robbie made her Cannes Film Festival debut on Tuesday with the premiere screening of her new film, Quentin Tarantino’s last directorial feature Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The film received a staggering seven-minute standing ovation, but what really caught our attention was Margot’s beauty looks at the film’s premiere as well as the following day during press rounds with castmates Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Both looks had a not-so-subtle nod to the ‘60s (the era the film is set).

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood premiere

The Aussie starlet took the opportunity on the red carpet to channel her character from the film – ‘60s film star and wife of director Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate.

Margot wore her hair in lightly-tousled undone waves, with plenty of volume at the back and long layers at the front to frame her face. She went with a blown-out contoured eye look made popular by the era, choosing to modernise the throwback makeup with a dark grey eyeshadow and a soft smattering of pearlescent shimmer in the centre of the lid. Brushed-up voluminous brows, nude lips, and a pink pop of blush on the cheeks finished off the look.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood photo call

Margot opted for a more low-key look for the film’s photo call, looking like she’d stepped straight off a hippy commune and onto the red carpet. She dialled down the makeup with muted, soft neutral tones, a hazy wash of coral pink on the high points of her cheeks and the bridge of her nose, barely-there lipstick, natural brows, and the subtle glimpse of shimmer on the lids and inner corners of her eyes. The real star of the show here, though, are those hair twists, which have been delicately interspersed around Margot’s naturally textured hair for an undone, cool-girl vibe that we are digging.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends.
