Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman & Charlize Theron premiere ‘Bombshell’ in LA

The 'Bombshell' Special Screening Arrivals

Bombshell comes out in a week, and I’ve been wondering why we haven’t seen any major premieres of press events as of yet. I’ve gotten so used to people doing full-on press junkets a month in advance, so it threw me off to see the Bombshell peeps leaving it so late. But here are photos from last night’s LA premiere, only they didn’t call it a premiere, they called it a “special screening.” It was a premiere. The ladies were dressed like they would have for a premiere. And I love how they all look very different, and yet… standing together, it all sort of works!

Fashion notes: Margot Robbie probably meant to have the “big look” out of the three, but I kind of think Charlize stole her thunder. So Margot looks kind of sad in this Giambattista Valli gown. Considering the other two women, Margot looks both overdressed and yet… not formal enough? It’s her hair. If you’re going to wear a proper gown, get a hairstylist worth a damn. Also, I dislike the gown but I usually dislike anything tiered. This looks like a droopy, limp peplum.

Nicole Kidman wore Saint Laurent – Nicole’s style has been on the fritz for years, but I like this? She has the figure and attitude for menswear-inspired looks.

Charlize Theron killed it in this custom Dior minidress. She’s a long-time face of Dior and this was so obviously customized just for her body. The styling though… I mean, did anyone see the hair first and think “wow, Michelle Williams??” Facially, Charlize is starting to look like Michelle too, I think. Hm.

    I kind of want this to have been a Greek Fates thing: young and innocent (Margot), wiser and sexier (Charlize), queen who can kill everybody (Nicole). I’m sure this wasn’t the intent at all, but it’s a pretty awesome fashion analogy.

  2. Jan says:

    In that 1st pic Charlize is starting to look like Nicole. I see it in her mouth and cheeks….sigh. Do these women realize that they all end up looking the same?

    • CoffeeShot says:

      I imagine they all refer each other to the same plastic surgeon, and he isn’t terribly adventurous.

  3. Grant says:

    I think Margot looks awful. That dress is hideous. The other two look nice. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

    • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

      I almost didn’t click because the header pic of Margot gave me the mehs. Something about her, and Elizabeth Olsen, are bland and I can’t get interest in their work, although as people I never hear bad things and that’s a good thing. But, agreed Nicole and Charlize look great to me.

  4. Nikomikaelx says:

    I Kinda dislike all of the outfits. Margots dress would be nice without the weird peplum hem thing. Charlizes dior is horrible imo, so dated, and the styling was way too severe.

    Margots styling was the best, but i always like more carefree hair etc.

    Nicoles menswear is ok, a bit boring but these suits are getting receptive, her hair is so damaged :/

  5. Deedee says:

    Looks like a tulle bomb went off and Margot wore it as a dress.

  6. Lala11_7 says:

    I’m LOVING the throwback to the iconic YSL Tuxedo on Nicole…I remember when my Mama used to wear her’s in the 1970s….MY GAWD!!!!! And Dior and Charlize go together like the Sun and Moon…just…perfection….

    Not bad at all! I normally can’t stand Theron’s self-aggrandizing attire lol. And this outfit would normally scream, but she’s wearing this with less sharpness. She’s smiling. Her mouth is closed, and her hair is soft… She’s not screaming at me how fabulous she ‘knows’ she is haha. Robbie’s dress would have certainly looked better if the peplum didn’t bubble but gently layered. I’m also shocked how much I like Kidman’s look, and apparently she does too. Honestly, I think that’s what’s selling these three. They’re not pushing themselves into our faces. They’re simply happy and kinda look proud to be there?

  8. Darla says:

    I’m very interested in seeing this movie. I don’t care for any of these dresses.

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Love Nicole’s suit. Not feeling Charlize’s mini dress at all. And Margot looks strange next to Nicole and Charlize who are both in such dark and bold looks. Margot’s looks limp in comparison. I get they were going for the ingenue vibe but considering that this film stars three women it would have been a better visual for Margot if she were in something stronger.

  10. Becks1 says:

    Charlize and Nicole both look so sleek and sophisticated, and then Margot looks like a frumpy mess in comparison. I don’t think Margot would have looked quite AS bad if she weren’t standing next to those two women, both of whom can totally rock the red carpet (I guess black carpet here.) I feel like Nicole has been kind of off lately, but I still always look forward to seeing her. And Charlize can often dress in similar looks but again, I always look forward to seeing what she wears.

    I actually really want to see Bombshell. I didn’t at first, but the previews are definitely growing on me.

  11. Normades says:

    Margot always looks terrible on the red carpet. She really needs a new stylist/makeup artist/hairdresser. Everything is always wrong.

    Nicole and Charlize are killing it with their hawt lewks.

  12. Originaltessa says:

    Ugh, Charlize is so beautiful it’s crazy. She makes Margot Robbie look almost normal and average… which she most certainly is not.

  13. A says:

    Margot looks so beautiful – that dress, hair and make up. Everything looks perfect! Charlize looks sexy af. Nicole on other hand looks terrible.

  14. sammiches says:

    Nicole’s makeup is b r u t a l

  15. Bella A A says:

    I love Nicole and Charlize, but Nicole’s hair needs some something. Deep conditioning, perhaps?

  16. Case says:

    It’s strange to me that women on the red carpet don’t coordinate or talk about what they’re generally wearing before arriving at the event. Margot looks so out of place here.

  17. SM says:

    I love Charlize’s look. She has killer legs and she works them. I happen to have a similar pedicure now and I love it. Margot looks like she just saw a ghost. Nicole looks like she had a couple of sleepless night or is that some pink makeup around her eyes, which would be wacky.
