Margot Robbie made a stunning, albeit silent return to the red carpet for the first time after SAG-AFTRA strike. However, the starlet had lost her voice and resorted to gesticulating when necessary.
Margot Robbie makes a silent appearance at Saltburn's premiere
Barbie star Margot Robbie burns the red carpet at Saltburn’s premiere, when she wore a Schiaparelli custom couture, in a never-seen-before mocha brown color on the pink diva. The dress, a nude illusion corset, with an unbuttoned waistband, and a trompe l’oevil belly button piercing, alongside simple yet sultry makeup set the evening aflame.
Thankfully, Robbie only chose the bronze velvet attire, and not the gimmicky Schiaparelli jewelry that featured with it in the designer’s 2023 Fall collection. However, the actress’ sweltering warmth could do nothing for her throat as Margot Robbie was seen gesticulating to express her inability to speak and provide an interview, as later confirmed by her representatives.
Though the Wolf of Wall Street’s actress had lost her voice, she still chose to attend the premiere to show her support. Margot Robbie co-produced the project along with Josey McNamara. The project is helmed by The Crown actress Emerald Fennell, who is an Oscar winner in filmmaking. This is Margot Robbie’s first appearance since Barbie and the SAG-AFTRA strike.
The film features a cast comprising Jacob Elordi, Barry Keoghan, Rosamund Pike, Alison Oliver, Archie Madekwe, Ewan Mitchell, Richard E. Grant, Carey Mulligan, Sadie Soverall, Paul Rhys, Millie Kent, Lolly Adefope, Aleah Aberdeeen, and Joshua Samuels.
The film focuses on Oxford University student Oliver Quick who finds himself drawn into the life of his attractive and charming peer, Felix Catton, who invites him to his aristocratic family estate, Saltburn, for an unforgettable summer.
The director of the project, Emerald Fennel had previously confirmed to PinkNews that Saltburn is a “queer thriller” and that its queerness lies at the center of the film. The project shall have characters on both ends, hetero and homo, of the sexuality spectrum. She has defined its universe as one where desire reigns supreme and “everyone wants everyone.”
