Margot Robbie Had To Sew Her Dress Back Together At The Oscars


We’ve seen quite a few wardrobe malfunctions over the years (who can forget Janet Jackson‘s accidental/ill-advised Superbowl appearance with Justin Timberlake?), and even more since the rise in social media and 24/7 surveillance thanks to smart phones.

While celebrities spend hours getting ready thanks to their dedicated stylists, it takes only one moment for a perfectly-put together look to come undone – literally.

So was the case with Margot Robbie, who suffered a slight wardrobe malfunction while she was at the Oscars.

Pure nightmare fuel for the rich and famous.

Wearing a gorgeous white Chanel gown with beaded off-the-shoulder straps, the Aussie star of Oscar-nominated film, I, Tonya, experienced a slight hitch after entering the theatre when one of the specially-made beaded straps broke off, requiring a quick fix.

A member of Margot’s team was immediately on the case, rushing over with a sewing kit for Margot, who then fixed the strap herself.

When speaking to PEOPLE, Margot made light of the situation, telling the publication, “Oh, ain’t got time for that!”

PEOPLE also revealed that Margot wasn’t the only Oscar-nominated star to experience a wardrobe malfunction, with Sally Hawkins, the lead in The Shape of Water, saying of her sequined dress, “I’m losing shells!”

According to InStyle, Margot’s Chanel gown, which was made by Karl Lagerfeld, took a total of 550 hours and fourteen hands to create thanks to the intricate embroidery of the strap and corsage. The actual time taken to put the entire dress together was an extra 130 hours.

That’s right. It took a total of 680 hours to create Margot’s Oscars gown and one minute to ruin it.
