Swiss luxury watchmaker Richard Mille announced it has joined forces with Australian actress Margot Robbie, who will both co-design a watch collection for the brand and act as its new ambassador.
Teaming up with a film star is a first for Richard Mille, which in the past collaborated with top-level sport professionals such as F1 driver Felipe Massa, tennis ace Rafael Nadal and sprinter Wayde Van Niekerk.
Margot Robbie, who shot to fame with ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, will not only be Richard Mille’s brand ambassador, but will also co-design an exclusive line of watches “with a highly contemporary feel,” the Swiss brand wrote in a press release.
The proceeds from this collaboration will go to Youngcare, a charity engaged in helping young Australians with disabilities to lead a dignified life.
Born in Australia, Robbie grew up on the Gold Coast and eventually moved to Melbourne where she began acting professionally at the age of 17. She appeared on Neighbors, Australia’s longest-running television serial, from 2008-2010. In 2011, Robbie moved to the United States to pursue her career and was quickly cast in the critically-acclaimed series, Pan Am.
Robbie is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 hit, The Wolf of Wall Street, in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.
