Margot Robbie looks nothing like herself on the set of her latest film.

Tapped to play infamous former figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, Robbie was photographed on the movie's set on Friday wearing what appears to be facial prosthetics and a body suit, as well as a blonde wig teased into that ubiquitous early-'90s crimp.

I, Tonya will chronicle the scandalous events surrounding the figure skating competition at the 1994 Winter Olympics. Little more than a month before the games began, Harding's ex-husband hired a hitman to break the leg of Harding's rival, Nancy Kerrigan. Kerrigan sustained an injury but no breakage and took home silver at the Olympics competition, while Harding landed eighth place. Upon discovery of her involvement in the attack, Harding was stripped of her awards and banned from the sport.

Last month, cameras captured Robbie prepping for her role at an ice rink in Burbank, CA:

I, Tonya isn't due in theatres until 2018, but you can see Robbie in the stylish thriller Terminal later this year.
