Margot Robbie in gold Versace at the ‘I, Tonya’ premiere: stunning or cheap?

Los Angeles premiere of 'I, TONYA'

Here are some photos from the big LA premiere of I, Tonya last night. Margot Robbie really is a bombshell, isn’t she? One sign of Margot’s bombshell status is that she’s one of those rare women who makes cheap-looking clothing look somehow expensive and high-fashion. It’s a gift that few celebrities have, honestly. Margot wore this cheap-looking gold Versace dress which looks like it came from Frederick’s of Hollywood, and yet on Margot, it looks great. She looks stunning.

Margot happily posed with the true OG Tonya Harding, who seemed pleased to be there. Margot’s costars were there too, including Sebastian Stan (who plays Tonya’s dirtbag husband), Julianne Nicholson and Allison Janney. Janney in particular can do no wrong – even when she’s wearing a boring sack, I still think “wow, Oscar-worthy.”

Speaking of Oscar-worthy… I know there’s a lot of debate about Margot’s Oscar chances. For the record, I still believe she’s a shoo-in for all of the major Best Actress awards, but the way the actress race is shaping up, I think she’s going to lose everywhere to Saoirse Ronan (that’s how it looks now, it could change). But Allison Janney? I feel like she’s close to a sure thing for Best Supporting Actress. She fits so much of the criteria: she’s been around forever, she knows everybody, everybody loves her, she’s a world-class actress and she’s never been nominated for an Oscar. The Academy loves to give “older actors” the Oscar in supporting categories. It’s like their version of a lifetime achievement award.

    it looks like she got it at Ross. What material is that?

  2. Kitten says:

    She looks STUNNING and I usually hate those Vegas Vanna White-type dresses but she is WORKING IT.

    • Lirko says:

      I’m getting like a Michelle Phiefer (sp?) in Scarface vibe, but, agree, the woman is wearing the dress and not visa-versa. She looks gorgeous.

      • Annaloo. says:

        I agree. Total Michelle Pfieffer…she looks sensational.

        I’m not sure how I feel about I, Tonya. What she and those men did to Nancy Kerrigan was beyond terrible….no one deserves to have that level of crime upon them. I have a lot of mixed feelings looking at Tonya Harding enjoying this spotlight. She should not be honored..not now, not ever.

      • Sylvia says:

        That’s exactly what I thought: she’s serving Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface and I love it!

        I also understand about having mixed emotions about this movie… I get why one would want to make a film about it, and I don’t think Tonya Harding is actually portrayed in a positive light, but it is weird that Harding is walking the red carpet and basking in a spotlight for attacking someone years ago.

    It wouldn’t look bad if it was made of nice colored fabric, not this cheap looking gold material

    • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

      Oh, my dear friend. I must owe her something for calling her by a different name yesterday (from now on you will always be Margot Robbins to me).

      At first I was wow but then I realized how cheap that fabric looks.

      I thought they “test” the dress on a model to see if there are any flaws, including “see through” areas that are not supposed to be part of the dress? Are there any real expert stylists in Hollywood?

    I think she looks like a million bucks and I really want to see this movie!! As for her award chances, I’m certain she’ll end up getting them at some point. Maybe not now, but eventually. I still mantain she deserved a nod for her perfomance in WOWS.

  5. NΞΞNΔ ΖΞΞ says:

    But why does her underwear have to be visible??

  6. KBB says:

    She reminds me of Jaime Pressly.

  7. Sherry says:

    She looks gorgeous, but that dress looks like something you could pick up at the mall at Charlotte Russe.

    LOVE Allison Janney! She looks beautiful here too, though I’m not loving the bottom of that dress.

  8. minx says:

    Am I seeing underpants through Margot’s dress? Also, the dress isn’t fitting her well under the arms.

  9. Seraphina says:

    I love her. She’s awesome BUT that dress makes her look like a cheap version of Golden Barbie. Way too cheap and the designer should know better. And here I thought only my wallet was getting hit by cheap material since I shop at TJ and Marshalls but it seems everyone is cheapening their clothing.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    Tonya would have worn it.

  11. Whoopsy Daisy says:

    I disagree. She has very classic bombshell features and can look tacky very easily, unlike say, someone like Rooney Mara. Hair and makeup are great, but the dress? Not so much.

  12. Neelyo says:

    Her hair and makeup are flawless and she’s making the dress work.

    Did not recognize Julianne Nicholson at all.

  13. smee says:

    I love Allison Janney – she’s so tall and elegant (not to mention a great actor). I even like that dress.

    Margot Robbie is stunning – but the material of that dress is SO thin. She looks great in gold and I like her styling. The same dress in a better fabric would be fantastic.

  14. Jazzie30 says:

    She’s a beautiful woman. Sebastian Stan is gorgeous.

  15. Spring says:

    She looks great to me. That dress would look like a gold spray-painted trashbag on me, but she’s working it.

  16. tealily says:

    I love love love Allison Janney, but somehow I still doubt that she’ll win the Oscar.

  17. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I am totally here for Allison Janney!! Just adore her!

  18. Electric Tuba says:

    It’s very Scarface chic and I’d wear it o u t

  19. Sonya says:

    She’s trying to do Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface but not really pulling it off.

    Also, are we supposed to feel sympathy towards Tonya Harding?

  20. Cami says:

    Margot robbie looks great but the dress does look cheap. I have a really hard time with the real tonya in the spotlight. I lived through the scandal of what was done to Nancy Kerrigan. I don’t believe she deserves to be in spotlight no matter how sad her life was growing up. All kinds of wrong!

  21. Peachy says:

    She’s very overrated in looks. She looked amazing in Wolf when she had a whole team working on her every little detail. Acting’s okay to very good in some films but her accent is apparently not good here.

  22. SM says:

    Considering the time movie is set in and a bot of a trashy look of Tonya Harding, I think that Margot went deliberatly for that look so only for that reason I do not hate that.
    Sebastian Stan is a beautuful mam but that tie is horrible. Unless he was aiming at some 90 fashion too. And I love Allison. She can do no wrong. Ever

  23. themummy says:

    I don’t find her to be a bombshell at all. I don’t even find her all that above average or attractive. She’s a good actress, though.

  24. Snowflake says:

    I guess she’s pretty but to me just that. Not gorgeous. It seems to me like many blondes are average but people say they are gorgeous because they’re blond

  25. Aerohead21 says:

    It looks super cheap and it also looks like it’s taped on in a few places…like one wrong move and it’ll fall right off.

    Now that other gold dress, on the other actress…color is just a bit too brassy but the design is good (as in it doesn’t look like I made it). Alison Janney’s red dress with gold flames looks great for her.
