Margot Robbie paid tribute to the late actress Sharon Tate at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, recreating her braided hairstyle on the red carpet.
Tate first wore the same event in 1968, just a year before being murdered by followers of Charles Manson in 1969.
Robbie plays Tate in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which has received critical acclaim from critics.

The cast, including actors Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, and the director allegedly had a standing ovation six minutes after the film's premiere.
The Oscar nominee declined to play Tate lightly. To prepare for the role, Robbie spoke to Tate's family and friends.
"Everyone said she was kind, loving, and kind-hearted," she told People magazine. "I was fortunate to step forward with the blessing of Sharon's sister Debra Tate."
