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.

HFM talks exclusively to Isabeli Fontana – the Brazilian supermodel who’s been named one of the world’s top-earning models by Forbes, has walked for Victoria’s Secret countless times, been a Pirelli calendar regular and worked for every big name designer in her two-decade career, including Chanel, Versace and Armani.
The 35-year-old Brazilian was discovered at a talent competition in aged 13. “It was my neighbour who suggested it to my mum, who applied for me,” she told us.

“When I started modeling, it was just a job, and I was so excited—everything was so new, so crazy. I didn’t overthink anything. Cara Delevingne
While the 20-year-old self-described tomboy was amazed by her sudden rocket into the heart of the fashion universe (not to mention by just how tough all that runway walking can be), she is setting her sights on other stars—acting, making music, inventing, Nobel Prizes—as long as there’s plenty of goofing off to be done along the way.
