For her turn as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's forthcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Margot Robbie's medium-length blonde offered a no-adjustments-necessary foundation for transformation—a glamorous blowout was virtually the only step required to solidify the above-neck aesthetic switch. But for today's photo call at the Cannes Film Festival, Robbie infused the center-separated style with a wash of modern bohemia—and offered onlookers a quick trick for soon-to-be summer styling.
An homage to Tate's look at Cannes in 1968, Robbie went full-on free-spirit, her off-the-shoulder Chanel dress—a confectionery column of thoughtfully paneled lace—played up by a quartet of face-framing braids, worked softly and seamlessly into her ombréd baby blonde by hairstylist Bryce Scarlett. Barely-there makeup executed by Pati Dubroff—a swirl of blush, a rose-pressed lip, and a touch of brightening metallic at the eyes' inner corners—kept the moment simple, while the gentle plaits (left unsecured at the ends) delivered enough stylized whimsy to ensure the term flower child translated to the present tense. Whether you favor pared-back glamour or a more playful approach, one thing is certain: '60s-inspired beauty is synonymous with summertime.
