Margot Robbie managed to steal the show in more ways than one in a plunging yellow dress at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards last night.
The actress was a vision in the gorgeous yellow gown, but as she posed on the red carpet she managed to show off a little more flesh than bargained for in front of snappers. Credit to her though as she remained totally professional and just shrugged it off.
Margot, 24, was spotted posing on the red carpet with fellow actress Carey Mulligan – who showed off her natural beauty in low-key make-up and a green strapless gown – before she was honoured as an ‘Inspiration’ at the ceremony and picked up the ward for Breakthrough actress at the annual event, held at the luxurious Claridge’s H๏τel in London.
The 29-year-old star confessed she was “excited” to have been able to play strong female leads and urged young actors to trust their own instincts when it comes to choosing film parts.
The Great Gatsby star told the Metro newspaper: “With actors and actresses, people are trying to lead you in different directions. You know yourself what is best and should follow the choices you believe in.
“So much of my career has been about great female roles in male-driven stories. So I’m excited about people I have been working with recently to get female stories told.”
Another actress recognised at the awards was ‘Game of Thrones’ star Gwendoline Christie who took home the British Actress title.
Fashion stars Diane Von Furstenberg, Simone Rocha, Sarah Burton and Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley were also named Fashion Icon, Young Designer of the year, Designer of the year and Model of the year respectively.
Carolyn Murphy took home the Beauty Icon award, Roksanda Ilinic was crowned Business Woman of the year , while Jessie Ware took Musician of the year and Julia Peyton-Jones was named Art Icon.
