Curious about what Margot Robbie wore for the Oscars red carpet tonight?
Do not panic (as tempting as it may be to have a mini meltdown over the brand name of a celeb’s dress), for we have all the details.
Margot arrived on the Oscars red carpet wearing a white floor length gown that looked pretty simple… other than the tinsel-like chains draped across the top.
Turns out that gown was custom haute couture from Chanel, and it took more than 600 hours to craft. Whew.
The dress, made by Karl Lagerfeld himself, featured a corset bodice with a 3D band of crystal tubes, filled with camellias, a favourite flower of Coco Chanel.
While it looks fairly plain from far away, a peek up close reveals the craftsmanship that went into crafting the dress.
InStyle reports that the corsage and strap embroidery required 550 hours of work by fourteen fashion hands, while the assembly of the dress took 130 hours.
Margot finished her look with Chanel jewellery, naturally – a statement ring and earrings in 18 carat white gold and diamonds.
If you’re wondering why Margot went for all Chanel, everything (apart from her shoes, which are by Roger Vivier), it’s worth noting that she was recently announced as the label’s new brand ambassador.
While the dress held together for the red carpet, when Margot was inside one of the straps fell off. Thankfully her assistant had a sewing kit to hand, and the actress was able to fix her dress herself.
