It mustn’t be hard for Margot Robbie to channel a 50s starlet like Grace Kelly or Marilyn Monroe. All she really has to do is curl her hair, slap on some red lipstick and she’s pretty much set. Vanity Fair must think so too, because that’s the look the magazine tapped into for its shoot with the 24-year-old budding actress from Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Photographed by Miguel Reveriego at the Catalina Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, New York, Margot steps into a mixture of nautical-inspired black, white, navy and red outfits styled by Jessica Diehl, truly getting into her 50s character. And while her joyful smiles throughout the shoot would have us convinced this The Wolf of Wall Street star oozes confidence, her interview with the glossy makes us think otherwise.
“I did not grow up feeling like I was particularly attractive,” Margot told Vanity Fair. “You should have seen me at 14, with braces and glasses, gangly and doing ballet! If I looked good in The Wolf of Wall Street I cannot take full credit; it was because of hair extensions and makeup.”
Nice try Margot, but we’re thinking it takes so much more than hair extensions and makeup to land a gig as Leonardo DiCaprio‘s trophy wife. Besides, anyone who’s watched the notoriously confronting film knows about her insanely good looks from head to toe, and there’s no downplaying that one.
