Pierce Brosnan's son Dylan made a headline-grabbing appearance at the Los Angeles premiere of Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood.

The 22-year-old, who splits his time between California and New York, is a model, cinematographer and composer, following in his father's creative footsteps. While Pierce played it safe in a royal blue suit, his son opted for a more literal approach to the '60s timeline being represented onscreen in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film.

His combination of  pleated pale blue jeans, white collared shirt and tan leather jacket was enough to give heartwarming flashbacks to vintage fashion lovers, finishing off his look by straightening his shoulder-length hair and throwing on a pair of round frame eyeglasses.

Dylan, who stands at 6'5", made his runway debut with Saint Laurent and has been quietly making a name for himself both in front of and behind the camera. Meanwhile, Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie, who stars as Sharon Tate in the movie, which documents the late actress' murder at the hands of members of the Manson Family and depicts the Hollywood culture of the era, made it to the top of best dressed lists once again in head-to-toe Chanel.

Since its world premiere in Cannes in May, Margot and her co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt have been on a whirlwind promotional tour and the Australian actress has been notably channeling her onscreen counterpart during her red carpet circuit.

For Monday night's screening, she wore a floaty white Chanel dress with plunging neckline, fresh from the French fashion house's couture autumn/winter '19 collection. It's a contemporary homage to the dress of the day and Margot has been so invested in the role that she wore some of Tate's jewellery, before it was sold at auction by her sister Debra Tate.

"Coincidentally, Debra was preparing an auction and arranged a loan of Sharon's jewelry for Margot to wear," costume designer Arianne Phillips told the Hollywood Reporter. "It felt like a talisman for myself, Margot and Quentin."

Margot in particular was touched by Debra's support throughout filming and said she got the family's blessing before filming. "They all said how kind, loving, and good-hearted she was. I was fortunate enough to step on to set with Debra Tate’s blessing, Sharon’s sister."

Meanwhile, last night's event attracted the A-list guests expected of one of 2019's most buzzy movies, in addition to its already impressive stars.

Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky led the couples in attendance, alongside Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens and Britney Spears made her red carpet debut with boyfriend Sam Aghsari.
