Sure, when you watch the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 5, you could guess that any one of the outfits would've taken ample time to create. However, the sheer effort (and number of hours) may surprise even the most detail-oriented red-carpet fan. According to Nylon, Margot Robbie's 2020 Golden Globes dress — or, more specifically, the exquisitely detailed bodice — featured 4,750 sequins and beads; which, when all was said and done, took approximately 225 hours to craft.
And it may look very familiar to you: The embroidered piece first appeared on Chanel's Fall 2019 Haute Couture runway in July, paired with the same understated, white skirt Robbie wore to the Golden Globes and bow-detailed heels. Inside the Grand Palais' library setting — and under the watchful eye of new creative director Virginie Viard — the show-stopping Chanel ensemble acted as a link between the show's timeless suiting and intriguing, pattern-mixing separates (hello, Look 48).
On the red carpet, Robbie let the couture piece's more whimsical side sing. The Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role nominee wore her hair loose and wavy, parted down the middle in a style that's quickly becoming her signature. “I wanted her hair to have a slept-in textured soft waves look to complement her bold and modern Chanel gown," noted Moroccanoil Celebrity Hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett, in a press email.
The star's makeup look also helped seal the colorful deal. Robbie's purple cat-eye liner, courtesy of makeup artist Pati Dubroff, brought out the warm-toned shades in the elaborate top (of which there are plenty). Even better, the wine-colored liner complemented her reddish-purple nails — an eye-catching hue created by mixing two nail colors together, according to an Instagram story by celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik.
As fans know, this is only just one step in the long relationship between Chanel and Robbie, too. A Chanel ambassador, the actor has a history of representing the house on the red carpet — whether that be by opting for Chanel beauty (à la the Bombshell premiere) or through wearing a detailed, embroidered gown.
