Karl & Carine Give Gabourey Sidibe The Royal Treatment For BAZAAR
Sometimes we almost feel guilty for the amount of space dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld on this here website. But it’s not every day that one of his many, many, many newsworthy actions involves Gabourey Sidibe. And if it does, it’s probably more likely to be because of an awkward/nasty comment rather than a regal full-body photograph taken for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
Sidibe was one of the women lensed by Lagerfeld for Carine Roitfeld’s ‘Singular Beauties’. The spread is a celebration of female diversity, and also features, somewhat less surprisingly, Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Fanning, Karen Elson, Soo Joo Park and a particularly rosy Lily Collins. Our #1 silver fox Carmen Dell’Orefice also poses with Ondria Hardin, who’s almost 70 years her junior and who landed Karl in a bit of hot water last year when he cast her in a Chanel campaign at just 15 years of age.
The spread will run in 45 national editions of Harper’s Bazaar. See Gabourey, Scarlett, Carmen and Ondria’s portraits below, and head to Harper’s Bazaar to view the rest.
