Chanel ambassador or seamstress? Stitch in time saves Margot Robbie

This morning, Margot Robbie was announced as the latest ambassador for French fashion house Chanel.

And, based on the events that followed, she could really run the whole business if she had to.

The Australian actor made her debut for the fashion house on the Oscars red carpet (no biggie, just a soft launch), wearing a white haute couture gown from the brand. But, while things were picture perfect in front of the cameras, once she made it backstage one of the dress's beaded straps reportedly fell off.

Multiple outlets reported seeing the 27-year-old receive a sewing kit from an assistant, before promptly sewing the strap back on herself.

Somewhere on the Gold Coast, Robbie's old high school textiles teacher is giving themselves a pat on the back.

“Oh, ain’t got time for that!” Robbie, who was nominated in the Best Actress category for her portrayal of controversial US figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, told People after the incident.

The moral of the story? Be a multi-skilled employee.
