Margot Robbie’s wardrobe malfunction

MARGOT Robbie might have looked a vision of glamour on the red carpet, but the Aussie actor was forced to do some DIY sewing after a disaster with her dress.

The Oscar nominee, who missed out on the gong for Best Actress to Frances McDormand, donned a stunning Chanel Haute Couture white gown with off-the-shoulder beaded straps.

And while all went well on the red carpet, once Robbie got inside the venue disaster struck as the 27-year-old was spotted desperately seeking a sewing kit after the straps of her dress snapped off.

A nearby assistant managed to deliver the goods, with Robbie seen sewing up the dress herself.

She reportedly told US magazine People: "Oh, ain't got time for that," after fixing her wardrobe malfunction.

And she wasn't the only A-lister to have troubles.

Fellow nominee Sally Hawkins revealed her own dress dramas to Robbie after seeing her sewing up her straps, admitting: "I'm losing shells" as she pointed to the sequins on her gown.

Robbie, who hails from the Gold Coast in Queensland, received her first Oscar nod at the 90th Academy Awards this year for her portrayal of disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the movie I, Tonya.

She may have missed out on the top prize, but Robbie has had a stellar awards season, picking up Best Actress for the role at the Critics Choice Awards as well as the AACTAs.
