It’s Margot Robbie’s turn to share some throwbacks.

At the end of July, Leonardo DiCaprio shared an early preview of himself and Brad Pitt on the set of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming feature, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In the photo, DiCaprio, who plays a has-been actor named Rick Dalton, and Pitt, who plays Dalton’s stunt double, lounge against a stone wall, their cross-legged poses mirroring each other.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood centers, in part, on the Tate-LaBianca murders of 1969—the most notorious of Charles Manson and his follower’s crimes. In the film, Margot Robbie plays the late actress Sharon Tate, a neighbor of Rick Dalton’s and the wife of director Roman Polanski, who was pregnant at the time of her murder. And on Monday, Robbie revealed another dimension of the upcoming feature in a first look that she posted, like DiCaprio just a couple weeks ago, to her Instagram.

In the image, Robbie stands against a massive orange sliding door, wearing a long black turtleneck, white miniskirt, and white go-go boots. (While it’s not clear if this was based on an actual Tate look, the actress was known to don a black turtleneck from time to time.) “First look,” Robbie captioned the photo, followed by the hashtag #OnceUponaTimeinHollywood and the film’s handle, @onceinhollywood.

(Original Caption) LOS ANGELES, CA: Authorities widened their search August 11th for someone “involved in a personal way” with film actress Sharon Tate and four other persons found brutally murdered August 9th at a rambling Bel Air (California) estate. Miss Tate, wife of film director Roman Polanski, is shown in a publicity photo released in connection with “The Wrecking Crew,” one of her movies.

In addition to being Polanski’s wife, Tate was perhaps best known for starring in Valley of the Dolls, the camp masterpiece that, while widely panned at the time of its release, has since become a bit of a cult classic.

Robbie joined the cast of Tarantino’s upcoming feature, currently slated for a July 2019 release, back in May; the final cast wasn’t confirmed until earlier this summer, but already the production is forging ahead (with some breaks, affording DiCaprio time to lounge on yachts with girlfriend Camila Morrone).

“I feel a responsibility with every character I play, whether they’re fictional or real life,” Robbie told IndieWire shortly after her casting for the role was announced. “To play her right, play her truthfully, and kind of understand her emotional journey.”
