The designer responsible for Margot Robbie’s costumes as Harley Quinn in the new Birds Of Prey movie has offered a breakdown of her look.

The film is a spin-off of the massively successful Suicide Squad in 2016, and is out next year.

Designer Erin Benach told Collider: ‘Behind her story is always something a little bit off from centre and a little bit crazy, with the idea being that caution tape may be a place to stay away from, and maybe it’s a way to caution the world against what she might do.

‘So, we took the idea of that caution tape and tried to re-purpose it into a costume.’

She added that the look will ‘feel like Harley made it herself.’

We can’t wait to get a proper look at it!

BGUK_1738285 - ** RIGHTS: WORLDWIDE EXCEPT IN UNITED STATES ** Los Angeles, CA - First look at Margot Robbie and Ewan McGregor in official trailer for Birds of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. She was everyone's favorite anti-hero in the 2016 flick Suicide Squad. And Margot Robbie is back on the big screen starring as Harley Quinn in the new trailer for her spin-off film, Birds of Prey. The actress donned Harley's signature red-and-white pigtails for the chilling teaser which focuses on her newfound girl gang post split with the Joker. "Do you know what a harlequin is? A harlequin's role is to serve... it's nothing without a master,'"she details in the opening scene. "And no one gives two s**** who we are beyond that." The storyline focuses on Harley's adventures seeking emancipation after her split from another notorious villain. "The Joker and I broke up," she reveals. "I wanted a fresh start, but it turns out I wasn't the only dame in Gotham looking for emancipation." Robbie stars alongside a cast of leading ladies including Rosie Perez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ali Wong and Jurnee Smollett-Bell. "Isn't this fun - it's just like a sleepover," she quips to her girl gang between gunfire and explosions. "We should order pizza, make cosmos." The group of women team up to protect young Cassandra Cain from the evil crime lord Black Mask, portrayed by Ewan McGregor. Birds of Prey hit theatres in February 2020. *BACKGRID DOES NOT CLAIM ANY COPYRIGHT OR LICENSE IN THE ATTACHED MATERIAL.

The film explores allegations of sexual harassment at Fox News, with Margot playing fictional character Kayla Pospisil.

‘Kayla is an amalgamation of many women’s stories,’ Margot explained of the character to Entertainment Weekly.

‘And some of the specifics you see in scenes with her are taken from real-life interactions those women experienced.’

Intriguing.
