Margot Robbie's Fairy Tale
Margot Robbie wins the red carpet for The Legend of Tarzan in a Fall 2016 Gucci design.
Who: Margot Robbie.
When: Monday, June 27.
Where: The Hollywood premiere of The Legend of Tarzan.
What: A Gucci Fall 2016 silk embroidered dress with pink mink cuffs.
Why: Borrowing its silhouette from a Chinese cheongsam, this design evidences the painstaking embroidery that defines Alessandro Michele’s Gucci. The tiny birds and flowers pay homage to the design’s vintage, far eastern inspirations, while the dramatic thigh-high slit — only visible from certain angles — and bright fur cuffs seemed more drawn from the Anastasia playbook than Tarzan. We’re not picky with our fairy tales, though — on the runway and the red carpet, this one works.
