Her name may hark back to the 1930s, and her disarming beauty rivals any siren of the hollywood golden age, but the Margot Robbie I know is a modern day, down to earth Aussie, who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. In fact, you’d have to race her to get to the mud!
This is what I love most about Margot. Even though she’s become a deserved household name with her killer performance in The Wolf of Wall Street, she’s still the same old Margot. It didn’t matter that she was dressed in couture for The Golden Globes rubbing shoulders with our childhood poster boys, Margot still found the time to swing by my apartment the next day, armed with a tub of ice-cream and a long list of hilarious youtube clips she couldn’t wait to share.
So it was no surprise that even though she’s posed for top photographers and graced the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair, she was still keen as mustard to shoot with me for my little Peanut Gallery. And as she’s a true blue homegrown Aussie, it made perfect sense for me to style her in none other than my all time favourite, Sass & Bide!
We did this photo shoot guerrilla style. We shot in a gorgeous secret loft in Downtown LA generously provided to me by the wonderful Collin and Jessica Stark. There was no hair and make up artist, no wardrobe department and no fancy lighting. Just me, my camera and Margot, a lot of laughs and some glorious natural light pouring in through the tall loft windows.
I hope you enjoy our photos!
Love Miss. Peanut x
