Saturday Night Live has been an American comedy institution since debuting way back in 1975.

Now in its 42nd season, the show stays fresh thanks to its revolving cast of comedy talent (Bill Murray, Chris Farley, Will Ferrell and Tina Fey among them) and a new guest presenter for every show.

For this weekend’s premiere, Hollywood’s star of the moment Margot Robbie took on hosting duties and delivered everything from impersonations of Ivanka Trump and Kiera Knightley to Mr Robot’s Carly Chaikin.

Perhaps most memorably, however, was her turn as a “sexy librarian” who came across more like her Suicide Squad co-star Cara Delevingne’s deranged character Enchantress.

Whipping off her glasses and beginning a strip tease in front of Bobby Moynihan, Kenan Thompson, Kyle Mooney, Mikey Day and Alex Moffat to Yello’s Oh Yeah, the performance takes a dramatic and terrifying twist.

Expect to see a bizarre devouring of a banana, horrific dentistry and Haley Joel Osment. Consider this one stereotype well and truly subverted.

Robbie can next be seen on the big screen in assassin thriller Terminal, starring alongside Simon Pegg, Matthew Lewis and former Saturday Night Live comic Mike Myers.
