Margot Robbie Wows on Empire Awards Red CarpetBy: Shana Norris - March 31, 2014
Margot Robbie wowed onlookers at the 2014 Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday with an eye-catching scarlet jumpsuit.
Robbie accessorized the off-the-shoulder, flared-leg number with minimal jewelry and makeup, a simple black belt, and black peep-toe heels. She wore her newly-brunette hair in loose waves.
However, her show-stealing appearance was only one part of Robbie’s success at the London awards ceremony. Most notably, she won the Best Female Newcomer Award for her performance in The Wolf of Wall Street.
The 23-year-old Australian actress faced some tough competition for the award, including Lupita Nyong’o, who took home an Oscar last month for her supporting role in 12 Years a Slave.
Robbie’s role opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street was her biggest to date but she’s been keeping busy since then.
She’s set to star alongside Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas in the movie adaptation of Irène Némirovsky’s posthumously-published World War II novel Suite Française.
Next up is Focus with Will Smith, scheduled for a February 2015 release.
Robbie recently wrapped filming on Z for Zachariah, most of which took place in New Zealand. The post-apocalyptic science fiction flick also stars Chris Pine and is slated for a 2015 release.
Finally, Robbie will star as Jane in a live-action version of Tarzan which is scheduled to release in July 2016. Samuel L. Jackson, Alexander Skarsgård, and Christoph Waltz will also star in the big-budget Warner Brothers production.
Robbie’s love life is the subject of much speculation. In November rumors surfaced that she was involved with Focus costar Will Smith.
In January Orlando Bloom reportedly showered Robbie with attention at a Golden Globes after party.
In February Z for Zachariah production team member Henry Aitken posted a photo of himself and Robbie on his Facebook page, sparking a new round of rumors.
