Margot Robbie in Gucci at “The Legend of Tarzan” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on June 28, 2016

Margot Robbie attends “The Legend of Tarzan” Los Angeles Premiere held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

 

We can’t wait for Suicide Squad to open in August, because all the buzz says that Miss Margot gives a career-making performance as Harley Quinn, which means the lady is going to be all up and down that poledance, wearing everything she can get her hands on to promote herself. That’s not notable in and of itself, since virtually all rising young ladystars with buzz behind them wind up doing the celebrity fashion show, but we’re particularly interested in how Margot does it, because she tends to make somewhat off-the-beaten-path (from a conformist, image-making perspective) style choices:

Hunh.

So there’s that.

To be honest, we actually really like this dress, so long as we don’t look at the pink fur cuffs. And if you don’t understand why, just say the phrase “pink fur cuffs” out loud to get a better understanding of their inherent ridiculousness.

Plenty of people will say this represents an unacceptable form of cultural appropriation, and if you’re Chinese yourself, we wouldn’t dream of arguing the point with you, but Mandarin collars and Chinoiserie have such a long history in Western fashion and design that we’re not entirely sure where the line is on this stuff anymore. From a pure design perspective, we think this gown is quite beautiful and interesting to look at (despite the pink fur cuffs). We appreciate it for being something other than the usual cocktail dresses and princess gowns you see on the red carpet.

She needed a more done-up face for a gown like this, though.
