A Visual History of the Gorgeous and Deadly Margot Robbie

Before she was busting heads as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, the Australian actress was slaying on the red carpet.

If you don’t know Margot Robbie, you should.

While American audiences only recently met the 25-year-old Australian starlet in Martin Scorsese smash The Wolf of Wall Street and short-lived ABC retro drama Pan Am, Robbie’s made quite the impression. “She’s Scorsese’s best blonde bombshell discovery since Cathy Moriarty in Raging Bull,” wrote film critic Sasha Stone. “Robbie is funny, hard and kills every scene she’s in”

Killing is in Robbie’s future: The blonde beauty will star as Harley Quinn, anarchic mischief-maker and Joker flame, in the upcoming Suicide Squad film alongside Jared Leto and Will Smith. This week, Robbie graced the cover of Empire — and looked damn good doing it.

But Robbie caught our eye long before she was wielding bullets and bats. Below, a visual appreciation of the deadly angel.
