Margot Robbie has worked a LOT, and promoted that work even more, since bursting onto the scene. So when I set out to do a retrospective of her clothes, I realized quickly that I might need to split it up into two chunks — and those chunks are STILL very long, but somehow less intimidating than one gallery. Thus, we begin with Neighbours, the Aussie soap that brought her to us, and continue until the time she signed her brand deal with Chanel. Unfortunately, why that locker says FUNKY SHOP 4 PREACHERS is one mystery we cannot solve today.

P.S. We have since published Part 2: The Chanel Contract and Afterwards, and it is here!
