It’s not just you: Everyone is buzzing about “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” the latest blockbuster from Quentin Tarantino starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie. And the premiere, held at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on July 22, didn’t disappoint where fashion and glamour were concerned. The red carpet was packed with a who’s-who of the industry’s best and most stylish.
Here are the looks we absolutely loved.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Budget Fashionista Style
Robbie stunned in an insanely beautiful dress that people are still obsessing over. From the Chanel Fall 2019 Couture collection, the floaty, floor-lengthy gown is a true vision featuring cuffed, sheer blouson sleeves, a plunging V-neckline, and an enormous bow at the waist.
The runway version was shown in a rich navy blue, but this dramatic ivory version was designed specifically for Robbie. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff channeled a seductive “hot summer ‘70s” vibe, showcasing exquisite golden skin, warm, glossy eye shadow, and a slick of intense, buttery lip color.
The look for less
Want to make the style your own? Try a flowing maxi, like this one from ASOS DESIGN or this from A La Plage.
Breanna Wing may not be a household name just yet, but the actress is well on her way. As a crew member on various film sets and a friend of Tarantino, she visited the set one day and was spontaneously cast as a hippie hitchhiker, Cheyenne, who gets picked up by Robbie’s character, Sharon Tate.
Wing made her red carpet debut in a black Alice + Olivia jumpsuit featuring vivid floral embroidery.
Look for less
Make this your own in a similarly vibrant jumpsuit, like this one from Missguided or this from Angie.
As sultry and spectacular as ever, Adriana Lima looked every bit the superstar model in the fiery Hilo cocktail dress designed by Magda Butrym. The piece, which is dripping with wet-look sequins, features ruffle accents at the halter neckline, an open back, a lengthy slit and a keyhole front.
Clearly, this ruched, midi-length gown is not for the timid.
In her warm blush gown from Ong-Oaj Pairam, Rumer Willis makes a soft, summery statement. In true Pairam fashion, the dress is crafted of the finest silk and cut to perfection, featuring a cold-shoulder silhouette and a lean slit.
