Experiencing a wardrobe malfunction on the red carpet is probably every actress’ worst nightmare. With hundreds of cameras pointed at you, waiting for you to do something headline-worthy, dealing with a nip slip, a broken zip or a pant flash is up there with tripping up the stairs at the Oscars, a la Jennifer Lawrence.
Fortunately for Margot Robbie, who suffered from her own wardrobe malfunction at the ‘Legend of Tarzan’ premiere in London last night, her considerate co-star Alexander Skarsgard was on hand to help out.
He Tarzan, she Jane and all that.

The back of the actress’ dress needed a little quick fix and Alexander was more than happy to oblige. Quickly nipping behind the Australian star and sorting out her zip, he was rewarded with a peck on the cheek.
He also helped out a second time, standing in front of the 26-year-old to keep her decent as she adjusted her billowing skirt.

While Margot’s Miu Miu dress from the brand’s SS16 collection might not have been weather appropriate, it was certainly show-stopping. Equally beautiful was the number that Alexa Chung - Alexander’s current beau - donned.
Clad in an Alessandra Rich dress, the fashion icon looked as on point as ever in the floral number from the brand’s AW16 line. She teamed the frock, which boasted a thigh high split, with lace-up heels and red lipstick.
