Margot Robbie put on another chic display in a camel co-ord as she joined her co-star Brad Pitt at a screening and Q&A for their upcoming film Babylon.

The actress, who appears among a star-studded cast in Damien Chazelle’s three-hour epic, cut a glamorous figure as she took to the stage at LA‘s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Set in the 1920s, during Hollywood’s transition from silent films to talkies, Babylon is ‘a tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, as it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during the early Hollywood era.’
