An alliance of two powerful women
Margot Robbie joins Maison Chanel.
Margot Robbie is a bona fide Hollywood Star. In this alliance with the legendary French fashion house Chanel, she joins an exclusive list of spectacular women who have inspired the creators of the iconic Chanel Nº5. As the brand ambassador of the new fragrance line, Margot ‘lands on her feet’ to embody the greatest fashion icon’s free spirit, Coco Chanel. Chanel now launches Gabrielle Chanel Essence, a new version of this timeless classic.
Multifaceted and fearless
With every project she undertakes, Margot Robbie becomes further established as one of the most respected actors in today’s film industry. She was born in Australia in 1990 and made her TV debut at the age of 17 in the Neighbours soap opera. Not long after, Margot moved to Hollywood. Her great opportunity did not take long to arrive. It was in 2014, working with Leonardo DiCaprio in the film The Wolf of Wall Street. She subsequently landed a role in The Legend of Tarzan, alongside Alexander Skarsgärd. Robbie was also nominated for an Oscar for her acclaimed portrayal of Tonya Harding in the movie I, Tonya. She plays the Olympic figure skater who will be forever associated with one of the most infamous scandals in American sporting history.
These days, you can watch her stellar performances in Dreamland, and in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, where she stars as the late Sharon Tate, alongside Brad Pitt. Margot has now wrapped up the filming of Birds of Prey (a spin-off of the fictional character Harley Quinn), which she produced as well as starred in. The film Birds of Prey will be released at the beginning of 2020, by Warner Bros.
Margot will also be back as the deranged villain Harley Quinn in the movie sequel Suicide Squad 2.
It's a dream to represent such a timeless and iconic brand
Cocó and Margot, a very special alliance
Margot was captivated by her visit to Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment, and the famous Creation Studio at 31 de la Rue Cambon. She has chosen to wear many Chanel designs for her public appearances. The first time was in 2017 for the 23rd Edition of the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Only a few months after this event, she rocked an Haute Couture custom Karl Lagerfeld design for the 90th Academy Awards, where she had been nominated for her performance in the biographical movie I, Tonya.
In March 2018, the actress became the face of the first-ever Coco Neige Fall-Winter 2018/19 collection, which was inspired by snow and winter sports.
"It's a dream to represent such a timeless and iconic brand," Robbie said in an official statement. "The history of the Chanel woman is so exciting and the brand has remained such a powerful feminine standard of style."
A year later, legendary fashion house Chanel has announced Margot Robbie as their new fragrance ambassador, representing Gabrielle Chanel Essence. Created by perfumer Olivier Polge in collaboration with Laboratoire Parfums Chanel, this new olfactory interpretation of the original bouquet of Gabrielle Chanel reveals a more carnal and opulent, sunny and intoxicating composition. It is made of four white flowers - jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, and tuberose - with tuberose from Grasse as the signature for this Essence edition.
This powerful alliance is a guaranteed success.
