23 year old Margot Robbie, most famous for her recent performance as Naomi Lapaglia, has finally become the Hollywood star Australia has dreamed of. Local Gold Coast babe, formally known as Donna Freedmon in Australian TV drama series, Neighbours, landed her first major role in Martin Scorsese’s film, The Wolf of Wall Street, alongside Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill and Hollywood royalty, Leonardo Dicaprio. Her role as Naomi Lapaglia (Jordan Beltford’s mistress, turned wife) saw a whole new side to Margot’s acting; a lot of nudity, glamour, attitude, and a perfected Brooklyn accent, landing her an amazing six nominations.
Margot graced the cover of Elle Australia’s March Issue and scored herself a six page spread (dressed head-to-toe in Giambattista Valli, Zimmerman, Stella McCartney and Gucci) in which she spoke about “fame, fashion and slapping Leo in the face”. After the shoot Margot curls up on a couch and explains that to make photo shoots feel more homely, she always asks the stylist to have some Australian brands available. She then went on to tell Elle Australia that “[she] wants to rep [her] home country, [because] the clothes are so much better in Australia. In America, there are a vast amount of options in the low-price range and in the high-price range, but nothing in between. In Australia, there’s oodles: Zimmerman, Shakuhachi, Manning Cartell, Alice McCall.”
Margot has also been named one of fashions’ new darlings after sitting front row at the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week alongside Rhianna, Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning and Bella Heathcote. She wore a demure grey Miu Miu dress, styled with a bright red coat and a pair of floral heels. Like a true fashion guru, she completed her look with a small black belt around her waist, and a metallic Miu Miu handbag.
