Margot Robbie nails Parisian chic at Chanel’s PFW show

Margot Robbie nails Parisian chic with an oversized boucle jacket and micro handbag at Chanel’s PFW show


She always manages to look effortlessly chic. 

And Margot Robbie continued to prove less is more as she attended the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 show on Tuesday. 

Clad in a simple yet stylish all-white ensemble, the 31-year-old Australian actress nailed Parisian chic as she settled into the FROW at the Grand Palais.  

Wow: She always manages to look effortlessly chic. And Margot Robbie continued to prove less is more as she attended the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 show on Tuesday

Concealing her lithe frame, the Birds Of Prey star shrugged an oversized boucle jacket over a lace trim dress – which was just visible at the collar. 

Giving her tanned and toned pins some extra lift, she donned a pair of heeled white stiletto boots. 

The blonde bombshell completed the look by toting a micro handbag that may have been of no practical value, but added to the chic nature of the look.

While Margot brought some A-list glamour to the show, the muses of the late Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld were MIA, despite the brand keeping up their reputation for spectacle by sending a horse down the runway.

The presentation opened with Charlotte Casiraghi, the elder daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, accomplished equestrian and one of Chanel’s most recent ambassadors, cantering down the catwalk on a horse while resplendent in Chanel black tweed. 

However, the likes of Kaia Gerber, Kendall Jenner and Lily Rose Depp were unsuually not in attendance. 

This time last year the brand was forced to go virtual for its Spring/Summer Haute Couture show, after COVID 19 shut down the January PFW, and indeed the global pandemic has meant a marked decline in over-the-top, costly runway shows as well as the ability for international models to travel.

Meanwhile, although Margot is now a firm fixture in the fashion circuit, her long-time stylist Kate Young has explained just how she managed to turn the actress into a full-blown style icon.

The pair worked together for the first time in 2016, with New York-based Kate dressing Margot in a glittering Tom Ford dress for the Academy Awards. 

‘We met a month or two before then and worked on that dress, and have worked together even since,’ Kate, 45, told The Sunday Telegraph.

‘She’s a beach girl from Australia who is naturally beautiful. That dress, to me, was a really fancy dress – the whole dress was these pieces of gold leather sewn into it but the shape of it is really unfussy, minimal.

‘We wanted it to look like she’d been surfing and came in, blow dried her hair, and put on some lip gloss and this dress, and went to the party.’ 

The glittering gown earned Robbie a place at the top of the best-dressed lists, and soon after came a string of jaw-dropping ensembles that firmly crowned the former Home and Away star as a fashion queen.
