Kate Young Breaks Down Margot Robbie’s Best ‘tarzan’ And ‘suicide Squad’ Press Tour Looks

Between landing the June cover of Vogue, starring alongside a very hot Alexander Skarsgård in “The Legend of Tarzan” and as the pigtailed super-villain Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad,” Margot Robbie isn’t just having a great summer — she’s having a breakout summer. And the mastermind behind the Australian actress’s style? None other than Kate Young, who is proving yet again that she’s at the top of her game. (Some of you may have met her during a recent “Fashionista” meetup.)

Now that  the “Suicide Squad” tour has winded down, we chatted with the stylist about Robbie’s premiere and photo call looks from the last month. Read on for her break down of the actress’s statement-making style.

“It’s a pre-collection dress. I love Proenza, and I find that Proenza pre-collection pieces are a little more commercial, easier to wear. It’s super flattering and it’s serious enough for a photo call, where you should look dressed up. But it also felt cool and young. I really like that neckline on her, the sleeveless mock neck.”

“She just tried [the Prabal Gurung] dress on and we were all like, ‘That’s the greatest dress.’ It’s so simple and has all those little buttons and peekaboo bits. It’s sort of an edgy classic, a simple thing with a twist, which I like a lot. I think the thing with Margot is that she looks good with either a lot of “fashion” or kind of naked. And that’s one of the kind-of naked dresses.”

“We tried that dress on a while ago, during a fitting for ‘Tarzan’ and it was transparent and I was like, ‘Okay! Yes, so if we lined it and we do this and that, I think it could work for ‘Suicide Squad.” When she went to London for the ‘Tarzan’ premiere, the McQueen people came and fit it on her and fixed it all up. We’ve known since she tried it on that it would be the ‘Suicide Squad’ premiere dress, but it needed a little bit of work. So it is the sample dress, but it has been fixed up and made less risqué.”
