Posted 8 February 2018 in Event, Press Release

Harper’s BAZAAR Australia celebrates 20 years in March with a special collectable issue starring Australian actor and Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie on the cover. The issue will hit newsstands on Monday, February 12.

The March 2018 issue marks Robbie’s first Harper’s BAZAAR Australia cover, with the actor photographed by Max Doyle in the Byron Bay hinterland relaxing with her close-knit family. “When we started planning this issue, I always had my heart set on having Margot as our cover star for this special issue,” said Harper’s BAZAAR editor-in-chief Kellie Hush. “She is an incredible Australian talent I have admired for quite some time, and that admiration was only reinforced on our cover shoot. Gracious, intelligent, funny, generous and beautiful are adjectives I would use to describe Margot.

“Being editor-in-chief of Harper’s BAZAAR Australia is a dream job, so to be a part of this incredible milestone for the magazine is a huge privilege,” Hush continued. “The magazine has never been stronger,and this issue truly illustrates the power of print and the talented team at BAZAAR.”

Publisher Fiorella Di Santo commented: “We are so proud to bring this beautiful edition to our readers, and for the 20 years of Australian Harper’s BAZAAR. It’s a great celebration of fabulous fashion, innovation and the trailblazers of the industry.”
