Margot Robbie in gold Tom Ford: one of the best gowns of the Oscars?


Margot Robbie was another one of my favorites at last night’s Oscars. She got to present with Jared Leto (because The Suicide Squad), and for the honor of presenting, Margot was the only woman at the Oscars in Tom Ford. That’s how exclusive Tom Ford is these days, he’ll only dress one person at the Oscars. And he chose Margot. Which… okay? I like her too, and I think she’s got that It Factor, but at the end of the day, this dress probably should have gone to someone like Brie Larson. Still, this is an absolutely gorgeous, sexy dress. I have mixed feelings about Margot’s styling… I think she wanted it to be all about the dress, which is why everything else feels sort of undone. I think they could have figured out a better hairstyle and a better clutch though.



Kate Winslet wore this custom Ralph Lauren – imagine Kate in that gold Tom Ford. Right? She would have looked great. I actually didn’t hate this RL dress, but it was very, very SHINY. And Kate needs to stop f—king with her face and then lying about it. Her Botoxologist had a field day reworking her face ahead of the Oscars. Just a few weeks ago, her Botox made her look like she had a permanent scowl, and now she’s stuck on “sleepy.”

    Margot looks amazing, Kate not so much…

  2. Lee says:

    Really like Margot’s dress. Not sure about the clutch, but the dress is perfect on her.

  3. Tara says:

    I think Kate Winslet’s dress is ugly. Again like Charlize Theron, it’s not that the dress Margot Robbie has one is so uniquely amazing. Her beauty elevates it. She looked stunning with her hanging like that.

    • Calcifer says:

      @ Tara You said it exactly: Margot’s beauty elevates the dress! Tom Ford should be grateful to her. I personally liked her much better in that simple black Yves Saint Laurent dress which she wore so wonderfully last year with that priceless Duchess of Windsor necklace.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Kate looks like she came in a garbage bag.
      Margot looks fine. She has that kind of regular beauty so she rarely looks interesting to me.

  4. Jayna says:

    I thought she looked stunning. Effortlessly beautiful is how she looked on the red carpet.

  5. Lennox says:

    I really can’t look past that clunky black clutch. Why would you pair it with that dress? It’s so visually jarring. I had no idea I could dislike an outfit based on a clutch bag, but it appears that I can.
    Kate’s dress is just bad. The shine on that material makes her look really wide when we know she’s not and it looks cheap. I’m in such a snarky mood today.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Nope sorry, it’s a great dress but too old for her. It throws everything else off. That actually is a dress for a forty-something like Kate.

  7. mom2two says:

    I did not like Margot’s whole look nor did I like Kate Winslet’s.

  8. Marianne says:

    Kate looks like a shiny garbage bag.

  9. MacScore says:

    The Tom Ford dress is okay – looks like an Oscar statue. Margot’s hair, however, looks like mine when I haven’t washed it for a few days. Ugh!
    Kate’s dress makes her look a mile wide. Weird. The shiny fabric causes very strange effects down the middle which optically “widen” it – at least that’s how it looks to me. (Oh, I see somebody else already said this…).

    • Original T.C. says:

      Yeah not a fan of Oscar gold dresses from the 70’s but she is hands down a very beautiful woman.

  10. chloe says:

    I like Margot’s dress, but she needs to do something with her hair.

  11. Mimz says:

    I love love love Margot’s dress. So aaah-worthy.
    Kate looks blah but I like that she let her hair loose and seeing her pose, and hug Leo, and cry for his win made me nostalgic for some Titanic…
    It’s cute that they root for each other like that.

  12. SarahUK says:

    I donk think Kate’s dress is particularly flattering, and I really disliked it on first sight, but every time I pop back up and look at it… I don’t know, I’m dropping from real dislike to mild interest… it’s different, but I still don’t like the neckline.

    I would have liked to see Margo’s dress on someone one else too, I also think her hair is awful! How striking a fancy updo would have been with this dress. It’s interesting that if Tom Ford only dresses one person for the Oscars that he didn’t pick a nominee, or maybe no nominee picked Tom Ford… I don’t know how it works, can’t say I’ve even been in that situation 🙂

    • Bridget says:

      Tom Ford picks, not the other way around. And he’s extremely picky about who he dresses, though he’s just as likely to choose someone he just likes vs choosing a nominee. That year he did the white dress with the Cape for Gwyneth she wasn’t even nominated

      But I wonder if one big factor is the stylist each woman works with. He’s doing custom work for the Oscars gowns (I think) and he’s not the type to want outside input – AND the wearer has to commit to the dress completely, not have him make something and have it end up in a pile with 6 other options.

  13. Maum says:

    I agree that Margot’s dress was too old for her. Looked like something left over from Krystal Carrington’s wardrobe.

    It also swamped her (gorgeous) figure and made her look broader than she is. It might have worked with tied back hair but as it is she looked like she was styled for a different event.

    I don’t get the love?

    • JFresh says:

      I’m with you here…was Krystal Carrington a Dynasty character? If so, perfect comparison. It does seem overdone somehow…. And you’re right, not age appropriate.

    • vauvert says:

      I had the same reaction, it looked like a vintage (not in a good way) 80s dress. I think it was very well tailored though and we are so used to seeing poorly fitting dresses on the RC that when one comes along which is finally properly adjusted, no gaps, bunching, gaps, trailing hems, gaps, etc., everyone thinks it is great. It is not, IMO, a great dress, but it is made for her and it shows. The black clutch and blah hair really didn’t help.
      I used to like Kate. So over her smug face, boring dresses, snotty airs “not talking about salary, you peasants” crap.

    • Tara says:

      Spot on, Maum.

  14. JFresh says:

    Did Margot get her lips done or is she blessed with that beautiful pout?

    As for her dress she looks fine…somehow I’m not blown away tho. The clutch is cool.

    I like Kate’s earrings. The dress is a rare misstep for her, usually her styling stands out as one of the best.

    • Chrissy says:

      I think Margot’s lips are all hers. IMO her dress was lovely but too old for her and the black clutch should have been gold-coloured. The black was too jarring. Also her hair should have been either up or at least curled or something. It looked like she was too rushed to do her hair. Makeup is on point though. Kate’s dress is horrible. The fabric and the design on it made her hips look a mile wide. Nice hair though.

      • KB says:

        I’m pretty sure Kate is pregnant, which is why her hips look so wide. She said something to Cate Blanchett and Brie Larson and they both reacted really excitedly. Brie went in for a hug and Cate put her hand on Kate’s stomach. I’m sure we’ll know for sure within a month.

    • fiona says:

      Who cares if they have fillers or not. If they’re fake does it take away from their beauty? I’m sick of people thinking plastic surgery/fillers take away from beauty. They look natural if they have been done.

      I think they have had a little help. Very minor. And some fillers under her eyes as well, she’s always had less fat under there…Which seems to have plumped up.

      It doesn’t take away from her looks though. Katy perrys breasts have some small implants in them, doesn’t mean they’re any less perfect. They were big to begin with, with small implants underneath. Who cares if people have had a little surgery. Basically EVERY SINGLE PERSON in hollywood has had something done. Even if very minor. I wish people would get off their damn high horses about it.

      • Jay says:

        Not really a high horse. Some people just prefer natural beauty. To me, finding out someone’s beautiful feature is fake cheapens it. It reminds how people are so vain that they seek unnecessary medical treatment, which is gross imo.

      • Lex says:

        It’s kind of a silly stance to take.
        If you think someone has a beautiful nose, lips, eyes, breasts etc for years and then find out they had something augmented they’re suddenly not beautiful?
        Not everyone is lucky to be born with their features just right!

  15. paolanqar says:

    Margot looks stunning. the hair is a bit of a let down but she is so gorgeous that nothing can look bad on her.

    Kate looks like she’s wrapped in a garbage bag. Seriously ugly and so disappointing for an Oscar night.

  16. arbelia says:

    Kate dress is really one of the worst she ever wore. On pics it looked liked rubber, or a garbage bag. But oddly, i found she looked great, loved her hair and the make up. It was less sophisticated than what she goes for usually. But yes it made her look wider.

  17. Lucy2 says:

    I liked Margot’s, it was different and she wore it well.
    The material made Kate’s a disappointment.

  18. cleveland girl says:

    I can’t stand Margots dress. She looks like a cheap tacky lizard to me for some reason.

  19. Squiggisbig says:

    Love Margot Robie in this dress! Kate’s dress was super icky and unflattering

  20. Marie-France says:

    I love Margots dress and her hair. Red lipstick is The only thing missing.

  21. CornyBlue says:

    I nowadays just looks at these amazing dresses and just think that this is what JLaw could have worn. The dress is a dream on Margot Robbie. The hair looks bad and I feel would have gone better if she had a darker shade.

  22. Ninks says:

    Love Margot’s dress, hate the styling.

    Kates look is a huge nope. It’s sweet how she supports Leo, but it was part of his campaign wasn’t it? She did him a favour, she knew she went going to winbut she had to be there. He knew nobody was buying the engagement rumours with the last VS model, and he and no interest in keeping it up anyway. So instead of faking an engage, Kate is there so the cameras would have somebody to sweep to when he was making his acceptance speeches. It gives him the respectability the academy wants before they’ll give him an Oscar. She gets more attention than she would normally get for being given an also ran. Everybody wins.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I find the focus on her really weird, she’s married to another dude yet the internet is all “Aww Leo and Kate forever”, it’s so schmaltzy. But she is totally courting it for the attention, knowing full well Leo is far more likely to date her daughter someday!

    • ISO says:

      I agree. A ponytail would have worked so much better, and the clutch nearly dominates the gown for attention. Also, the hemline went “blah”. Something looks so halfysy about the whole look. I’m also not sure this woman has the star power for this exclusivy Tom Ford thing.

  23. Mrs. Darcy says:

    On it’s own, Robbie’s dress is very pretty, but I am so over the literally dressing like an Oscar thing, someone does it every year. It feels very obvious from Tom Ford to do this, although on a selfish note I’m glad he didn’t bestow Julianne Moore with the “honor” of dressing her because without him she looked perfect. I really don’t love Kate’s shiny dress or frozen face, but at least she took a chance/broke out of her usual style.

  24. TheGrandSophy says:

    Kate looks like she fell into an oil slick.

    Love the colour of Margot’s gown, but not the crocodile/snakeskin pattern or the cut. Krystal Carrington indeed!

  25. serena says:

    Woah, no, no and no! Margot is really gorgeous, and could also make a potato sack look beautiful but I think something’s lacking here.. not sure what though.
    As for Kate Winslet, I got the feeling she was wrapped in a plastic bag.

  26. QQ says:

    Margot was def one of my faves the hair tooh it down a few notches? like a Ponytail would have worked, etc

    I dont think pics do Kate’s dress shinynesssss justice cause i was baffled by it in motion, it was like PATENT LEATHER SHINY LEVELS

  27. Lucy says:

    Margot’s look is happening. Am I the only who’s looking forward to the day in which she picks up a statue?

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      Don’t get me wrong: I love Margot (she’s my girlcrush and very charismatic) but in what movie has she shown any Oscar worthy acting chops so far?

      • Grant says:

        She was great in Wolf of Wall Street. Absolutely held her own against Leo in very scene. I’m frankly shocked she didn’t manage a nom for Supporting Actress that year.

    • Lex says:

      She’ll get there – she’ll progress well into dramatic roles. Something emotional and weighty will come her way. Maybe not for a while – I’d like to say she’ll have an Oscar within 5 years.

  28. Diana B says:

    Best dressed of the night for me. Margot just knocked out of the park. Flawless from head to toe.

  29. Paisley says:

    Best gown of the night (IMHO) Naomi Watts.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Agree. I like Margot’s gown, 80’s style shoulder pads and all but Naomi’s gown was the business.

  30. Grant says:

    I like both of these dresses but I think both women should have done something different with their hair.

    • Carol says:

      I kind of liked Margot’s messy hair. It somehow worked with the dress (although the purse was a jarring sight). But Winslet’s hair was awful. I think her dress would have looked better if her hair was up or something.

  31. Kate says:

    Margot looks gorgeous. Kate is wearing a garbage bag.

  32. Marty says:

    I didn’t think much of Margot’s dress until I saw it in motion, it looked amazing!

  33. Bridget says:

    Margot looked stunning in motion. Every time I saw Kate I was trying to figure out if she was wearing a patent leather dress or just really unfortunate fabric.

  34. felixswan2 says:

    I really liked the Tom Ford dress. Margot looks beautiful and sun kissed!
    Kate’s dress is terrible in my opinion. Too shiny! She also always looks so smug.

  35. anne says:

    gosh, Robbie’s a beautiful girl, but dressing like a statuette just makes her disappear readily into the background for me. it’s such a dull idea.

    i didn’t know TF only dressed one person per year. that’s interesting. great marketing strategy on his part.

    Gosh, Kate Winslet’s look was. . . unfortunate. That was such a moment – Kate & Leo together – and the dress was BAD. She missed an opportunity there.

  36. TwistBarbie says:

    Why is does everyone at these events rock such basic hair and why is everyone ok with this?

  37. Reid10 says:

    I honestly don’t see anything wrong with Kate’s face. I know we’re supposed to hate on her but she’s an amazing actress. Can she be annoying? Sure but all actors can be, especially when they’re constantly working and promoting movies. As for her face being botoxed (which I’m usually super sensitive about), if she’s getting stuff done it looks fine to me. She’s nowhere near Nicole Kidman territory.
    Oh and Margot Robbie looks absolutely stunning!

  38. Naddie says:

    I wholeheartly hate Margot’s dress fabric.

  39. toby says:

    Not sure why you’re so convinced about Kate having botox. I saw a close-up photo of her on the red carpet and you can clearly see lines on her forehead and generally throughout her face.

  40. Camille says:

    Margot reminds me of Sienna Miller with the way she looks here.

  41. Cc says:

    These two dresses were my least favorites of the night.

    Honestly, Kate looks like she’s wrapped in plastic bags.

  42. Magnoliarose says:

    Robbie is beautiful but her “day out to run errands” hair is a no go. I like the dress but think a richer color would have been better but that could be the fault of her bland makeup.

  43. Lindy says:

    Am I just not getting it, or something? Margot’s dress looks like cheap, tacky lamé. And she herself always just seems so garden-variety generically pretty. I couldn’t even recall what she looks like if I’m not staring at a picture of her with a caption.

  44. Anare says:

    First a disclaimer. I can’t stand Tom Ford. I don’t get all the hype about his designs and he seems like a self important ahole. With that out of the way I will say I think the gold dress is nothing special and it seems too heavy on Margot. It’s too much dress for someone so young and pretty. Reads old. The black dress on Kate is a miss. She always wears that shape and it’s getting boring. I was surprised she would go for a fabric like that. Just as surprised that is a RL gown. Huh? I can’t see either one of them chosing such a tacky fabric. Kate has a beautiful figure. She doesn’t need a tricky dress to amp up her look.
