ART­FUL AL­LIANCE

The sunny Aus­tralian ac­tress Mar­got Rob­bie is the new face of Richard Mille, and it’s a beau­teous vis­age

Malaysia Tatler - - SULWHASOO SPECIAL -

Nei­ther hap­less damsel in dis­tress nor girl next door, Mar­got Rob­bie con­founds easy char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion on the sil­ver screen. She first caught the eye of the pub­lic as ‘the woman of Wall Street,’ mak­ing a sear­ing im­pres­sion in a siz­zling scene with Leonardo Di­caprio grov­el­ling at her stilet­toed heels. Boosted by the pop­u­lar­ity of Martin Scors­ese’s black com­edy, the bold lass has gone on to snare lead roles in a slew of Hol­ly­wood block­busters from Har­ley Quinn in David Ayer’s Sui­cide Squad to Jane in David Yates’ The Leg­end of Tarzan. And 2018 prom­ises to be a right royal time for Rob­bie, who will be crowned Queen El­iz­a­beth in Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots. Two touch­stones in cre­ative pro­fes­sions, Richard Mille and Mar­got Rob­bie are presently putting their heads and their hearts to­gether to drive pro­ceeds from their part­ner­ship to Young­care, a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that strives to shoul­der the bur­den of high-care needs among young Aus­tralians. It is for such rea­sons that the Swiss watch brand forms se­lec­tive part­ner­ships with role mod­els from a myr­iad of pro­fes­sions. Rob­bie joins the ranks of other honourable am­bas­sadors in­clud­ing pro­fes­sional golfers Cristie Kerr and Diana Luna, dres­sage rider Jes­sica von Bre­dowWerndl, and Malaysia’s own Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh—strong fe­male per­son­al­i­ties mak­ing waves in this age and time. Em­pa­thetic to­wards the mod­ern woman’s wants, Richard Mille has built a women’s col­lec­tion that is far from frag­ile or froufrou. A mar­vel of a ladies au­to­matic, the RM 037 mod­elled by Rob­bie sees a fast-ro­tat­ing bar­rel, as well as cut­ting-edge gear teeth and flat head move­ment screws in grade 5 ti­ta­nium— me­chan­i­cal merit for any watch en­thu­si­ast.

In­tro­duced in 2014, the RM 037 Ladies’ col­lec­tion places fe­male desider­ata at the fore­front CLOSER LOOK
