Margot Robbie’s makeout sesh with Will Smith wasn’t her only beneficiary while filming Focus. The Australian actress got to wear a mix of high-end designers on-set, and loved every minute of dabbling in pieces from Gucci to Givenchy.
By now you might’ve seen the trailer, or the film if you’re in a country where it’s been released already, and probably spent the entire duration drooling over Margot’s, or rather her character Jess’, chic, expensive wardrobe.
The sexy cut-out poolside ensemble for the ultimate “can you trust her?” scene? Oh, just Herve Leger and Prada platforms. The red one-shouldered dress as she comes down the winding staircase? That would be Roland Mouret.
But that doesn’t even begin to cut it. The 24-year-old also got to wear a Trina Turk floral-print number, Gucci shades, Alexander Wang pumps and a good dose of Dolce & Gabbana too.
Daily Mail Australia reports that Margot thought of the film as “like playing dress up”, otherwise known as every girl’s dream. “The costume fittings for this were really fun because I got to wear cool clothes,” she said. Cool? Bless.
She also got to put her two cents in with the wardrobe team, including costume designer Dayna Pink, to make sure that she was the sexiest pickpocket there ever was. We don’t think she has much competition.
“The costume choices are always pretty instrumental in creating your character so I was lucky that they were very open to any suggestions,” she explained. While she admits that most of the time she tries to “stay out of it”, it was important to Margot that the wardrobe reflected the way her character’s lifestyle changed through the film.
“The only input I had to my costuming was that I wanted there to be a difference between the first half and the second half of the movie looks for Jess,” she explained. In the early stages of the film Margot describes her character as having a style which is “street, a little more edgy” in a leather jacket, chipped nail polish and problem regrowth.
“In the second half, she’s acquired more funds and wearing designer clothes,” Margot explained. “A little more form-fitted, geometric, sort of architecturally cool stylised looks.”
That being said, she got to wear a Helmut Lang white goat-fur coat, Jimmy Choo ankle booties and a Givenchy skirt during her time as a crappy ol’ thief. NBD.
