As the old saying goes, imitation is the best form of flattery. For the premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Margot Robbie stunned the red carpet with her low-maintenance look, which included mini face-framing braids. At one glance, it may look like the average “just got back from my all-expense-paid trip to Jamaica” get-up, but a deeper look shows that it’s an homage to another iconic actress: Sharon Tate.
Thanks to the online community (and fellow COOLS contributor, Evan Ross Katz), it’s clear Robbie channeled the late actress’s boho-beach vibe, middle-parted baby braids and all. Robbie’s look was inspired by Tate’s 1968 Cannes Film Festival style, perfectly fitting for the event 51 years later.
This isn’t the only look Robbie donned in remembrance to Tate, whom she’s playing in Quentin Tarantino’s latest film. Earlier this week, she also wore a mod 60’s-inspired Chanel ensemble to honor the iconic fashion era Tate fore-fronted.
