Margot Robbie wore Chanel & gave herself terrible, too-long bangs at the Oscars

93rd Annual Academy Awards red carpet arrivals

Margot Robbie, as always, has some kind of contract with Chanel which ensures that she wears Chanel at all of the major red carpets. Ever since she got that contract, she’s been using it as an excuse to phone it in! Chanel gives her the most boring gowns and her styling is kind of terrible. I mean, I love her, she’s a very talented actress and an amazing producer focused on female storytelling and female directors and that’s all great. But lord, she looked like hell at the Oscars! The frazzled hair and the thick, shaggy bangs… it’s awful. And she literally just threw her hair back in a limp, low ponytail!!

Colman Domingo wore hot pink Versace and he looked amazing! Someone made the comment a few weeks ago that it’s weird that Hollywood men have chosen THIS year, with all of the Zoom awards shows, to really get bold with their style. I wish more men would wear hot pink at the Oscars.

Alan Kim is the little boy in Minari and he’s possibly the cutest child I’ve ever seen in my life. Apparently, he’s been dressed in custom Thom Browne throughout the awards season, and last night was a LOOK! The evening shorts, the one striped sock, the posing… he’s amazing and adorable.

    Not a fan of bangs but Margot actually suits them I think. Now Halle Berry’s hair…thats an entirely different story. She’s such a beautiful woman but even she can’t pull off that awful haircut.

    • HandforthParish says:

      I agree- I think the longer fringe looks ‘hippy-cool’ and effortless. I like the darker blonde on her and it works with the dress.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        I think if the bangs were a bit more “choppy” or “curtained” with just a little in the middle, it’d come off better. These are too thick and straight. Also, her hair seems way to “casual” to go with the formal gown.

        She’d also benefit from a “gloss” application to her hair; it looks very dull and dry.

    • Darla says:

      Me too! I love Margot’s hair here. She definitely pulls this off.

    • Brittany says:

      She looks beautiful — a very simple dress but classic. The hair is also very simple but lovely.

  2. Léna says:

    I think Margot looks good! It ages her, but in a good way. I don’t know, I like it lol

    And that pink, wow!

    • Lee says:

      Not sure about the bangs but she looks amazing, no matter what she wears.
      One of my best dressed last night.

  3. milliemollie says:

    I think she looks okay. Not amazing, but also not bad.

  4. Maddie says:

    I saw someone (Tom & Lorenzo?) comment that the bold looks on the men’s and women’s side are the result of the award shows finally nominating POC.
    Have to say there’s visibly more flavor to the red carpet than during the #AnyGivenAwardShowSoWhite years.

    • Darla says:

      Oh that’s interesting. Anyway that pink suit is swoon. I love a man who wears pink. I agreed to a first date with ex-husband, after turning down a few, because he wore a pink dress shirt to work, swear to god.

      • Esmom says:

        Darla, lol, that cracks me up. Pink on men is a good look, though, I agree. And that hot pink suit is amazing.

      • josephine says:

        I also love pink on men, especially men with dark hair. Pulled in by the pink shirt – I love it!

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        My younger nephew has dark brown hair and green eyes…when he wears pink or lavender… he looks amazing. I think that got him his gf! She actually got him a sweatshirt from her sorority that was white with pink, lavender, baby blue, and kelly green tie die and she makes him wear it all the time lol

    • sally says:

      I’ve been saying this for a few years now, it’s usually only the black and/or the gay guys who dare to let a little colour into their wardrobe and it’s an absolute pity. Then again, imagine Ansel Elgort trying to pull off that look…

      Margot looks perfectly fine for someone who wasn’t nominated and the dress seems very targeted to the luxury retail stores (I mean that in the best sense, these little flower patterns are making their comeback) which is exactly what those dresses are supposed to be.

  5. Lauren says:

    I like Margot’s long bangs, but the dress is boring. Colman Domingo, though looks so good!

    • Esmom says:

      I agree with your assessments. And the dress seems oddly casual for a gown.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I agree. It seems as if she decided to do the bare minimum to make the carpet and wasn’t into getting dressed up. If I was an actor, I would pull out all of the stops, like Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton, who I think being it to red carpet events, especially Swinton. She is a risk taker and always hits the carpet scene with dramatic and well thought out looks.
        Now Colman Goodman looks as incredible as ice cream on a hot day that you want to eat up!!!

    • josephine says:

      It looks better close up, I think. And I love, love the back.

  6. Original Penguin says:

    Alan Kim – that’s a great look for a little boy!

    • Snazzy says:

      And he’s so cute too! His little smile kills me

    • Normades says:

      I really like what his mom (?) is wearing. The top is like an inspired Korean jeogori and with her pants and shoes she just looks really hip. They both do.

      Sigh, Margot never gets it right.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      He is the epitome of adorable and what a killer smile he has!!!!

    • Dierski says:

      Such an adorable look! Besides looking great, he also looks comfortable – as a mom of an 8 year old boy I’m glad to see that. Super cutie!!

  7. Kurt's_caridigan says:

    I don’t know, maybe I’m a boring old basic bitch, but I adore Margots whole look, dress and hair included, and think that hot pink mess would look better on cowboy barbie… but wtf do I know?

    • FHMom says:

      You just described me. I like Margot’s look minus the pony tail. And I agree that pink suit is a mess.

  8. Seraphina says:

    I did not even recognize Margot. She is one of my faves after I, Tonya. I am not fond of the bangs, but I like it on her. She looks older, but she looks great. Gown is a snooze but she could have done worse.
    Not a fan of the hot pink suit.

  9. Lightpurple says:

    I like Margot’s dress. I don’t know what’s going on with her hair but that’s a good dress

  10. Jayna says:

    (Shrugs.) I absolutely loved this look on her . I give her hair color and hairstyle for the Oscars a big thumbs up.

    • Gina says:

      Same here!

      • Thirtynine says:

        I lo v e it too!
        My theory is that Margot has such a figure and face that she could do ‘bombshell evening glamour’ in her sleep. I love seeing her break free and go a bit more whimsical and fresh, and I think that’s the kind of life that Chanel gown needed.

  11. Lauren says:

    I just want to know if Kaiser (or any writer here) has ever seen bangs they liked.

    • Midge says:

      hahahahahaha, exactly

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      Haha I think also these bangs are a take on a trending hair cut I saw on Twitter the other day.

    • LeenaK says:

      Right? I don’t get the bangs hate. It’s so tired at this point. Bangs really suit a lot of people, some also want to hide a big forehead or wrinkles as they age.
      I think Margot looks amazing. Her ponytail is a little rough but this is an Oscars unlike any other. I say anything goes.

      • Isabella says:

        Many of us were forced to wear our hair in bangs when we were kids. Mom used to cut ours, to save money, and we all looked hideous and got teased. It was torture.

        Every now and then a stylist will give me bangs and all the bad memories come out. I can’t wait until they grow out, which seems to take forever.

        Unlike normal hair, which can be brushed to the side or pinned, they get into your eyes and look awful unless you have the right face or the perfect cut.

    • Bailie says:


      My best friend has bangs and she looks amazing.

      She happens to have a large forehead which looks much better covered up with bangs.

      The bangs also put focus on her lovely cheek bones and since she is now wearing blue contact lenses, her eyes are more prominent without make-up needed.

      It works great for her.

      My colleague who is 52 years old has bangs the first time, because she is sick and tired of botox to fix her forehead wrinkles.

      Honestly she looks a lot more youthful with bangs and the wrinkles are hidden behind her bangs.

  12. tempest prognosticator says:

    All three of them look great. The child in Thom Browne melted my heart. The pink suit is a treat for the eyes. Margot’s hair color is the perfect shade for her.

  13. Sofia says:

    Not a fan of the dress on Margot but I don’t completely hate her hair. I think it’ll just keep growing on me.

  14. Svanaroo says:

    I think Margot Robbie’s hair would look great paired with Emerald Fennell’s dress!

  15. Case says:

    I actually thought Margot looked beautiful! One of my favorite looks of the night: I love the bangs (pretty color too) and I thought her dress was lovely and appropriate given she wasn’t there as an acting nominee.

    Colman Domingo is always awesome.

  16. MellyMel says:

    I actually like the bangs and Margot’s whole look. The darker blonde looks really good on her versus the bleach blonde she’s had in the past.

  17. LondonGal says:

    Chanel creative need a word having as she’s a Goddess…the idea they can’t dress her to effect reflects VERY poorly on them!

  18. MsIam says:

    I like the bangs and the dress. The hot pink is giving me Temptations/Four Tops vibes.

  19. MF1 says:

    This is the best I think Margot’s ever looked on the red carpet. She usually looks washed out and drab. (Amazing that such a beautiful woman could have so many style misses!) However, like Zendaya and Audra, this dress feels like an after-party look.

    Colman Domingo gets my Best Dressed vote for the night. He looks amazing: bold, stylish, formal, impeccably tailored and groomed.

  20. February-Pisces says:

    Margot usually looks great, but not a fan of this look. Some people look amazing with a fringe (bangs) like Zooey deschanel, but it does nothing for her. Coupled with the low messy ponytail and average dress, it just isn’t her best look.

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Margot looks boho hippie chic lol. Quite soft, lovely, relaxed and happy!

  22. amilou says:

    I like the bangs. 🤷

  23. Lucy2 says:

    I think Margot looks fine. The bangs are a little heavy, and the dress is not terribly exciting, but it’s very pretty and classic.

  24. candy says:

    Colman Domingo f*cking slayed. Just wow.

  25. Vavavoom says:

    I love Margot’s look, it’s a little Heidi Klum to me, whose hair usually has a sexy windblown look.
    Margot is gorgeous as always.

  26. Veronica S. says:

    Colman Domingo played a very well loved cameo character on a show I follow, and when I looked him up, I was legitimately shocked at what a huge career he had amongst film, television, and stage. Kind of surprised they resisted keeping him longer. Very cool dude with great fashion sense. 👌

    I’m not a fan of Margot’s hair, but I think the dress is pretty. She wasn’t a nominee, so I think it’s properly lower key. Flattering but not an attention stealer.

  27. Lizzie says:

    I am almost never a big fan of Margo’s look at ward shows. But this look is maybe the best I’ve seen her and she showed up everyone else, imho. Also, one of my favorite hairstyles on her.

  28. Amando says:

    That pink suit is everything!!

  29. Katebush says:

    Margot looks great
    Love the fringe (which is what we call bangs in NZ) they’re not too long at all and love the low key ponytail it’s just a nice beach vibe and she’s so beautiful she could carry anything off
