It’s a bit ridiculous really that three such talented, distinguished and strikingly beautiful women should appear in one film. And then, together on one red carpet, on one another’s Instagram posts and on the same couch on celebrated talk shows. Kind of gives you a pain. But, for Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie, it’s all part of promoting their new movie Bombshell. And, it’s definitely a film worth getting behind.
If you haven’t already seen it, watch the official trailer here:
Bombshell is based on the true story of the Fox News scandal in 2016. At the time, Fox CEO Roger Ailes (played by John Lithgow) stepped down from his position after being accused of sexually harassing over 20 women. The list of victims includes Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) and Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron). Margot Robbie plays Kayla Pospisil, a fictional associate producer who, apparently, takes on one of the films’ toughest scenes depicting sexual harassment.
Early Oscar buzz
After the film’s first screening in LA earlier this month, critics were already putting Bombshell performances firmly in the Oscars race. We’ll wait to see if our very own Charlize Theron could bring in her second Academy Award for Best Actress. And, according to some, Margot Robbie’s only real competition in the Supporting Actress category is herself! She starred in another box office hit, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood earlier this year and was unbelievable as Sharon Tate.
The power of three
After screening the film, the trio did a variety of press conferences and media events. And, throughout, they also posted shots of each other on their own profiles. Here are some of our favourite pictures so far…

With all the media coverage around the #MeToo movement and plenty of horrific cases of sexual harassment taking place right here in South Africa, we couldn’t think of a better time to get behind this film. Hopefully, it gets enough attention and causes some to sit up and take notice of the treatment women endure on a daily basis.
Bombshell hits cinemas on 24 January 2020.

There’s no denying how good these three actresses look on screen, but what we love is how amazing they look off screen as well! We show you how to turn your everyday look into Hollywood glamour by stealing their style…
Nicole Kidman – Suited up
Get Hollywood glam by staying away from black or navy when picking a suit. Rather opt for a bold choice like all white! Pair it with a pop of colour in your shoes and a printed shirt with a sleeve detail.
Charlize Theron – Pleats Please
A pleated skirt never goes out of style. Go for a classic look with a black blouse and simple strappy heels.
Top tip: Don’t forget to add a belt to a boxy top to create a cinched in waist.
Margot Robbie – Matching Set
Let your outfit do the talking by pairing a matching set. This eliminates endless hours of deciding what goes with what and it looks like a million bucks! Keep accessories minimal and chic.
