“I’m so grateful to be in a position of power and to have more creative control,” she says. “That is embraced and encouraged now”


Taking Control
Margot Robbie is many things—a chameleonic actor, an up-and-coming producer, a bridge between old Hollywood and new. Just don’t call her a bombshell. By Irina Aleksander. Photographed by Inez & Vinoodh.

In the years since she faced down Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie has persuasively staked her claim as far more than a so-called “bombshell,” a characterization that the actress strongly resents. “I’m not someone who walks in a room and the record stops and people turn like, ‘Look at that woman’,” she tells Irina Aleksander in our July cover story. A better word, at least by fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman’s estimation, would be “powerhouse,” and it fits: Next month, she is starring in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (fulfilling a career goal of working with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino) and Robbie’s now five-year-old production company, LuckyChap, has an extraordinary slate of female-fronted films currently in development. Here, in her cover slideshow, see the boundary-breaking star assume a few more roles in evocative looks by Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Chanel, Versace, Celine, and Burberry.
