1. Margot Robbie had a Sharon Tate moment at the Cannes Film Festival
Margot Robbie is one known to slay the red carpet (every single time) and at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, it was no different. The new beauty ambassador for Chanel turned up for her Once Upon a Time in Hollywood photocall dressed in, well, Chanel (duh) and face-framing braids. If you thought that was pretty unexpected from the Australian beauty, she had a reason for wearing them. The major throwback hairstyle was a nod to actress Sharon Tate (of who Robbie plays in the film).

@MargotRobbie on portraying Sharon Tate: “I saw her as a ray of light and I just wanted her to be light…and that was my job and my role to serve in this story. And in doing so, I felt like I could honor the memory of real life Sharon Tate, who so many people said was such a bright light in this world.”
