Chanel picks Margot Robbie as face of Coco Neige line.

Just weeks after being introduced as the latest brand ambassador for Chanel, Margot Robbie has stepped in front of the lens of creative director Karl Lagerfeld to appear in her debut advertising campaign for the French luxury house.

The Australian actress has been selected as the face of Chanel’s first Coco Neige collection, set to hit Chanel boutiques in July and August in tandem with its fall ready-to-wear. The line, dedicated to winter sports and après-ski, mixes technical pieces with classic Chanel codes like tweed, leather and camellia motifs.

Robbie is pictured against a background of blue sky and clouds wearing items including a soft chunky sweater, a parka or a down jacket. The eight visuals will break from June 10 in the July editions of leading international magazines.

“This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career. The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative,” Robbie said in a statement

“One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously. He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot. It was amazing.

“Karl Lagerfeld is a creative mastermind. I already knew he was a genius but to be able to spend time with him in person, I now know he is also just a wonderful human being,” said the actress, who flew to Paris last week to attend the Chanel cruise show and shoot the campaign.

Robbie made her breakthrough in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” and has since appeared in films including “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Suicide Squad” and “I, Tonya,” for which she was nominated for an Oscar, a Bafta and a Golden Globe.

She has a raft of projects in the works, including “Mary Queen of Scots,” in which she stars as Queen Elizabeth I opposite Saoirse Ronan’s Mary Stuart, and Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” in which she is set to play murdered actress Sharon Tate opposite Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Lagerfeld has worked with a host of bold-faced names in recent years, casting the likes of Kristen Stewart, Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne, Lily-Rose Depp and Willow Smith in a variety of Chanel campaigns.

For Margot Robbie and Allison Janney, personal versions of the truth play out in ‘I, Tonya’ – LA Times

“I, Tonya,” the Craig Gillespie-directed biopic about Tonya Harding, the figure skater banned from competition for life for her connection to a 1994 attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan, has brought its stars — Margot Robbie, who plays an unsinkable Harding, and Allison Janney, as her sharp-tongued mother, LaVona — Oscar nominations, critical acclaim and, not surprisingly, a newfound love for the Winter Olympics. “We’re watching men’s half-pipe,” reports Robbie, jet-lagged and talking via speakerphone while sitting alongside Janney in a London hotel room. “We’re just mesmerized.”
The pair were in town to attend the BAFTAs, where they were both nominees. Before heading off to a party, they took time out to talk about the film’s more nuanced examination of Harding’s life (domestic violence, the skating world’s contempt for her working-class roots), Janney’s annoying parakeet costar and the reaction Robbie, an “I, Tonya” producer, had during her initial reading of Steven Rogers’ script.

“It’s so easy to dismiss these characters and their feelings. But by the end of it, I was devastated, angry and frustrated for them. I’d laugh out loud at something, then immediately feel disgusted with myself that I found it funny,” says Robbie. “To be able to let those feelings creep up on you, instead of being told to feel them? That’s a real art form.”

Parsing what’s true or false is a daily struggle of late. How much do you believe your characters?

Robbie: I knew we’d never know exactly how it went down. Twenty years later, everyone had completely different recollections of the same thing. Truth and reality had parted ways. My character’s truth was not necessarily the reality of the situation. But her version of the truth was far more interesting to me than the facts.
Janney: What made it so fun was the juxtaposition of everyone’s truth. You see LaVona throw a knife at her daughter, then cut to me saying, “What family doesn’t have their ups and downs?” Her truth was that she was a good mother, she gave her daughter an opportunity, and her daughter screwed it up by picking the [wrong] man. Where the reality is? I don’t know.

Margot Robbie Reveals the Craziest Thing She’s Witnessed Tonya Harding Do During Awards Season.

Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.

Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.

“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”

Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.

“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”

The 2018 Oscars ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4 and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
