T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine brings courage, energy and power to readers, serving as a journal of where Australia is at today. Our new edition, on sale now and featuring Australian actor and producer Margot Robbie, was created during a time of restrictions, lockdowns and stress, and that has informed its content, as well as its theme, ‘Impact’, says Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Katarina Kroslakova.
“When we started working on this Impact issue, locally acquired Covid-19 cases were few and far between and there was talk of post-pandemic life. Then the Delta variant took hold and everything changed,” she explains. “On a practical level, the team had to rethink photoshoots and put travel plans on hold. On a personal level, as the weeks rolled on and my family withdrew from the world beyond our front door, I found myself seeking out more personal, reflective stories for the issue — pieces that look inward rather than out.”
So as a result, this issue is dedicated to dreamers and doers, and therefore Robbie is perfect as our cover star. In a candid interview via phone in London, she tells T Australia about her Hollywood side hustle and her next big project, which has her putting everything on the line.
