Note: Photos from the Oscars will be added to the gallery as soon as I can as I’m having issues getting the photos up.
MARGOT Robbie channelled New Zealand singer Lorde on the Oscars red carpet today, opting for a moody gothic look.
The Australian actor, who made a spectacular red carpet debut in January at the Golden Globes in Gucci, is getting mixed reviews for her full length black dress which she paired with a dark red lipstick.
Robbie had shared a candid snap of herself prepping for the Academy Awards in a Los Angeles hotel room. The hint of what was to come was her new dark locks.
Dressed in a white and pink silk robe, the Wolf of Wall St actor could barely contain her excitement while getting prepared for the red carpet.
“Never thought I’d say this … I’m getting ready for the #oscars!!!!,” she posted on Twitter.
Robbie is set to attend the glitzy awards night with her Wolf of Wall Street co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill.

Hollywood starlet Margot Robbie has been swept off her feet by the son of a Banks Peninsula farmer.
Robbie, on location in Port Levy, is dating former Christ’s College pupil Henry Aitken.
Last year, her role as Naomi Lapaglia, the blonde bombshell trophy wife of stock-market fraudster Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort, saw Robbie transported to A-list fame overnight.
She had previously received two Logie Award nominations for her role as Donna Freedman (2008-2011) on the soap opera Neighbours.
Several sources have confirmed Aitken and Robbie are a couple.
The Press understands the local lad and The Wolf of Wall Street actress met on the set of movie Z for Zachariah currently being filmed in Canterbury.
Aitken’s close friend, who did not wish to be named, told The Press the pair had been seeing each other for about one month.
Aitken worked in the film’s art department and had become close to Robbie on the film set, he said.
“She’s got quite a few roles lined up so she’s going to be really busy . . . but he is in the film industry too so maybe they can find a way to maintain their relationship.”
He said despite being a Hollywood star, Robbie seemed like the sort of person who was “not interested in celebrity types”.
Aitken’s mother Penny said: “We can’t and won’t comment”.
However, pictures of the new couple have appeared on Aitken’s Facebook page.
Robbie’s mother has also travelled to New Zealand to see her daughter during filming and is believed to have met Aitken.
Robbie, now a brunette, will play Jane in a remake of Tarzan set to be released in 2016.
Aitken’s Facebook page says he now lives in Auckland and studied at the New Zealand Film and Television School.
He is the art director for multimedia production company Sakowski Studios, has a profile on modelling and talent agency Ican’s website and has also worked on feature movies as well as short films and documentaries.
Z for Zachariah also stars Chris Pine of Star Trek and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is both a Bafta and Oscar nominee for his leading role in 12 Years a Slave.
She’s made quite a name for herself thanks to her role in the critically-acclaimed flick “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and now Margot Robbie opens up about her experience on the set in March 2014 issue of ELLE Australia magazine.
During her interview, the 23-year-old actress opened up about her scary audition with Leonardo DiCaprio and chatted about her family seeing the Oscar-nominated film.
Highlights from Miss Robbie’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ELLE Australia!
On her audition and Leo’s improving:
“He got momentum like you wouldn’t believe. He’s off and running, and I’m sitting there like a stunned mullet, thinking, ‘You’ve got 30 seconds left in this room to do something impressive.’ I think every swear word in my head just started screaming at him. When I walked over like I was about to kiss and I go… slap reality washed over me. ‘Oh my God, you just assaulted Leonardo DiCaprio. They’re going to arrest you now.’”
On her stance on nudity scenes:
“I lied for a long time about the nudity. First, I said there was no nudity. Then I said there was nudity, but it wasn’t me, that it was a body double with my head CGI’s on, saying, ‘It’s crazy what they can do with computers!’ Then I had to admit it was me.”
On her family’s reaction to the film:
“The grandparents flat out can’t see the film. The rest of the family can watch at their own risk, but if we can’t have a relationship after that, it’s not my fault. If they can make it to the films final act, they’ll see a more shocking side to their little girl in a climatic fight scene between Jordan and Naomi.”
On her acting career:
“I say this about everything: When I was on ‘Neighbors,’ I said, ‘These are the best years of my life!’ When I was filming ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ I said, ‘These are the best months of my life!’ I always think I’m having the best time ever, and thatI’ll never had so much again.”

Thought id post a video I just watched, a short interview from behind the set of the shoot for the latest Vanity Fair: Hollywood Issue. Enjoy, M.x
Australian actor Margot Robbie continues to cement her status as a major box office drawcard, having been confirmed as Tarzan’s love interest Jane in a 3D live-action remake of the adventures of the jungle-dwelling hero.
The Wolf of Wall Street star will appear alongside True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard under Harry Potter director David Yates. The Warner Bros production is scheduled to hit cinemas in July 2016.
Robbie has reportedly beaten Hollywood A-lister and The Amazing Spider-Man actor Emma Stone to the role — the second time Robbie has done so, after pipping Stone to the post of leading lady in the Will Smith rom-com Focus, out later this year.
Also signed up for Tarzan - a reboot of the classic works by Edgar* Rice Burroughs to be set in modern-day London – are Samuel L Jackson and Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz.
It’s the latest chapter in the meteoric rise of 23-year-old Queenslander Robbie, who rose to fame locally after joining Neighbours in 2008. She is currently the number three most searched star on IMDB after Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Jennifer Lawrence, and ahead of Scarlett Johansson.
Since her critically-acclaimed role as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in Martin Scorsese’s Wall Street drama, she has scored a coveted spot on the cover of the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood edition, appearing alongside names such as George Clooney and Julia Roberts.
She also sparked controversy last week amid reports her legs were digitally extended during a scene from The Wolf of Wall Street, where she pushes DiCaprio with a high heel. Robbie herself has previously criticised the demands of Hollywood on women, saying: “There is a stereotype that you need to look a certain way, and when you get into the business, you really feel the pressure.”
Robbie will also appear in the coming wartime drama Suite Francaise, alongside Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas, and is currently filming post-apocalyptic scifi thriller Z for Zachariah with Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor in New Zealand.

But, it’s former Neighbours star and Wolf of Wall Street leading-lady Margot Robbie who they have their eyes on, with Andy adding: “She’s the one for me… We had Kelly, we are trying to spread our wings now.”
After reminiscing about all the stars to grace the Australian soap’s set, Ryan concluded: “Scratch that we are going to go for the female cast of Neighbours.”
While they aren’t dreaming of their next female video co-star, they are busy writing new music for themselves and for others.
