Margot Robbie joins Richard Mille family

Australian actress Margot Robbie has become a Richard Mille ‘partner of the brand’ and will put her feminine touch to several of its new models, the Swiss watchmaker says.

Born in Australia, Margot began acting professionally at the age of 17. She appeared on Neighbors, Australia’s longest-running television serial, from 2008-2010. In 2011, Margot moved to the US to pursue her career and was quickly cast in the critically-acclaimed series, Pan Am.

Margot is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese’s  2013 hit, The Wolf of  Wall Street, in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. 

The Wolf of Wall Street paved the way for interesting and unique opportunities for Robbie including starring opposite Will Smith in Focus, a lead role in sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring as Jane in David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan, as well as her role as the iconic “Harley Quinn” in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Margot can be seen next in Simon Curtis’ Goodbye Christopher Robin alongside Domhnall Gleeson. She recently wrapped production on Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, which she stars in as Tonya Harding, and served as a producer under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Margot will soon begin production on Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots in which she will star as Queen Elizabeth opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Margot has her own production company LuckyChap Entertainment and currently has several films in development including Bad Monkeys, Beautiful Things and Marian.

This partnership between Margot and Richard Mille complements the very contemporary spirit of the collection in which Margot will bring her creative energy and her own interpretation of femininity as she participates in the design of several models, the brand says.

“I am really excited to join the Richard Mille family, I have always admired the brand’s artistry and innovation. The watch we are working on embodies Richard Mille’s vision of horology; it’s beautiful, unique and modern. I can’t wait for everyone to see it,” Margot says.

Richard Mille and Margot will create together a collection of which the proceeds will be donated to Youngcare. This foundation is committed to helping young Aussies with high-care needs live life with choice, independence and dignity.

Collaborating with an array of artists and masters in their disciplines allows Richard Mille to enrich its vision of what a masterpiece of watchmaking for the 21st century should look like, without losing sight of tradition and history.
