Style File: “Birds of Prey” Star Margot Robbie in Acne Studios and Proenza Schouler

Posted on February 05, 2020

Miss Margot’s in the home stretch of the Oscars race while at the same time promoting her new comic book movie. In other words, it’s a pretty good time to be Margot Robbie right now. Is she celebrating this moment through her style choices? Not exactly – although we wouldn’t say she’s slouching in that department; just that “celebratory” doesn’t feel like the vibe. “Serious” does. We suppose it’s hard when you’re going around receiving accolades for your prestige film star status while at the same time promoting your lady clown movie.

The hip and crotch area of those pants is way too balloony, which is kind of a shame, because it’s distracting from the fact that the rest of the look works so well. We’re not sure we’d have come up with the brown, black and white color scheme, but it works well for her. We just wish the pants weren’t pleated.

Her recent red carpet history has shown a preference for a lot of coverage and in some cases, a decent amount of volume. We can understand why an awards-track actress might opt to stay away from skin-baring looks; especially in New York in February, but this looks way too much like monk’s robes. You can dress modestly and stylishly without looking like you took a vow of chastity and obedience. Would it help if this wasn’t a poo-brown? Only a little. Blue or black and she’d look like a nun. Red, and she looks like a cardinal. White, and she’s the pope. There’s kind of no way to avoid the ecclesiastical undertones here.
