On the red carpet: Olivia Palermo, Margot Robbie, Madeleine Cotillard, Cate Blanchett

Margot Robbie was gorgeous in Miu Miu at the European premiere of The Legend of Tarzan in London. 

This gown has art-deco style embroidery, sheer panels and black trim.

Madeleine Cotillard sat front row at the Christian Dior Haute Couture show this week dressed head-to-toe in pieces from the brand’s Cruise collection. 

Her powder-blue ‘Diorama Club’ bag is especially pretty.

Cate Blanchett can make anything look elegant and is even pulling this Armani jumpsuit off, but that weird print makes it a waste of her lens-drawing star power. 

Surely the brand should only seek to dress her in their chic-est things?
