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.

Margot Robbie Gives Nissan’s Formula E Launch a Big Push.

Actress Margot Robbie has starred as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” played super villain Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad,” and was recently nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.”

In her current role, the Aussie actress stars as Nissan’s electric vehicle and sustainability ambassador as the marque kicked off its Formula E launch tour in Southern California.

“I’ve already seen many of Nissan’s initiatives, designed to bring cleaner air to roads and fairer access to power across the globe. And now, we have this—a fantastic new Formula E car,” Robbie said to a small crowd of fans.

“I’m excited to see how it will help Nissan develop its EV offering further and bring new and exciting technologies to communities across the world.”

Robbie also plugged her recent Nissan videos and touted her happy Leaf EV ownership.

Ana Paola Reginatto, Nissan head of EV products, tells us Nissan’s Global Design team designed the livery and the company is the first Japanese marque to enter Formula E.

“Its heart is full of green energy and our Formula E car was made for the future,” Reginatto adds.

Nissan enters the ABB FIA Formula E Championship series in December. It revealed the EV race car at the Geneva Motor Show and it made its U.S. debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show last month.

Nissan’s global motorsport director Michael Carcamo was also on hand to remind us of the company’s 70-year history of working with electric vehicles.

“Entering the ABB FIA Formula E Championship gives Nissan a key development platform for our EV technologies,” Carcamo said.

“Using the same streets that our Leaf customers also commute on as race tracks has real benefits for customers—we’ll be able to take on real road conditions with our race cars—and we can share what we’ve learned as we tune our latest electric vehicles.”

Carcamo hasn’t had any seat time behind the wheel of Nissan’s Formula E car—“My insurance doesn’t cover it,” he tells us. But he did confirm that the EV has a top speed of 155 mph and features a new 54 kW battery pack that’s nearly double the range of the previous 24 kW batteries used last season. Instead of two cars per race, now teams will only have to race with one.

The Formula E series travels to New York, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Zurich, and Hong Kong when the fifth season begins at the end of the year.

Margot Robbie Is a Lethal Femme Fatale in First ‘Terminal’ Trailer.

The actress shows off her range as she seduces, tortures and manipulates the likes of Simon Pegg and Mike Myers.
Margot Robbie on Wednesday unveiled the first trailer for Terminal, which showed off the slick, dark, film noir world of her latest film.

The trailer opens with Robbie’s femme fatale character, Annie, sporting a black bob haircut and a British accent as she interrogates a man using extreme methods.

The rest of the cast is then introduced — including Simon Pegg, Max Irons, Mike Myers and Dexter Fletcher — as the trailer showcases a gritty world filled with neon signs, dark alleys and dangerous, seedy characters.

The film, directed by Vaughn Stein in his feature debut, follows the interwoven tales of two hit men (Irons and Fletcher), a teacher battling a terminal illness (Pegg), a janitor (Myers) and a diner waitress living a dangerous double life (Robbie).

The trailer shows Robbie flexing her range as she offers advice to Pegg’s character while taking a break from waiting tables, teases Fletcher and Irons’ hit men in a strip club and hints at her master plan behind-the-scenes to “set them upon each other like starving rats in a cage, and you can watch through the bars.”
