The latest cover star of Gritty Pretty Magazine revealed

The Gritty Pretty Magazine June 2022 issue starring Australian musician Thelma Plum is now live on

After a forced break caused by the global pandemic, Plum is back performing electrifying new music she wrote in lockdown.

The First Nations artist talks to Gritty Pretty beauty director and executive editor, Danielle Gay about the past two years and why she’s ready to rule the charts again.

"As live music brings a riotous return, bringing hordes of hungry music fans together without restriction after the pandemic first began, we bear witness to a new era: one of explosive creativity, vibrant colour, arts and soulful lyrics that musicians like Thelma Plum gift us with," shared Gritty Pretty founder and publisher, Eleanor Pendleton.

"Today, we embrace a new age and we see this reflected in the makeup women (and men) wear, how we dress and how we style our hair. This winter, it’s not about broody, dark hues – it’s about capturing the spirit of youth and an unabashed view that life is short and it should be lived. That is what this new issue represents."

T Australia launches brand new issue

T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine’s Artistry issue launched this week, with Australian model and poet, Emma Balfour, fronting an edition dedicated to creative mastery.

Available to purchase online ( and at newsagents nationally, Issue #6 of T Australia explores why the arts matter in 2022. Covering fashion, fiction and visual arts, this issue celebrates creatives who bring wonder and beauty to daily life. Emma Balfour is the first model to front the bimonthly title, a poet and mother of two who’s been a fixture of the international catwalks for almost 30 years.

“This edition of T Australia – our Artistry issue – is dedicated to those whose creative mastery inspires hope and gives us a sense of what could be,” T Australia publisher and editor-in-chief, Katarina Kroslakova, said. “I’ve always disagreed with those who view art as a mere indulgence. Without wonder, beauty and joy, what is left? I’d say the arts in their many guises have never been more important than they are right now, as they help us process change and understand the world we live in.”

The magazine can be ordered online, either as a single copy or as a one-, two- or three-year subscription.
