    The 33-year-old Margot Robbie — who was snubbed from the Oscar nominations despite her crucial role in the heavily nominated film ‘Barbie‘ — dazzled the Oscars event with a strapless chainmail black gown. The detail of the outfit was gathered at the waist, as the actress looked stunning.

    The anti-pink elegance was complemented with blonde locks flowing down in a straight style. For jewelry, the actress opted for a chunky gold bracelet adorned with diamonds from Fred Leighton.

    Margot Robbie was the only one dressed in any other color than pink among her ‘Barbie’ co-stars including Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera, as well as the film’s director Greta Gerwig. As Robbie made her entrance, fans were quick to interpret her wardrobe choice as a potential protest against her Best Actress Oscars snub.
