Harper’s Bazaar’s May cover girl is none other than Mademoiselle GOOP herself, Gwyneth Paltrow! But its lucky they were able to land the actress at all, since from the sounds of things she barely made it through the harsh, unforgiving months of winter in London. Good thing she’s a resourceful kinda lady and had some tricks up her sleeve! It’s just too bad she didn’t share these a few months ago, or we may not have had to resort to fuzzy slippers and Netflix.
Congratulations, you’ve made it through hump day! As a reward, we suggest you sit back, relax, and enjoy this video of Harper’s Bazaar‘s Laura Brown exchanging some witty banter with Karl Lagerfeld. Let’s just say we think they’d make a great comedic pair.
Taylor Swift‘s face has been smiling, smizing, and otherwise staring out at us from newsstands everywhere for the better part of the past year. The 23-year-old kicked off her cover spree with Vogue‘s February 2012, and since then has covered Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Vanity Fair, to say nothing of the countless tabloid covers she’s popped up on with boyfriends Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles (They’re on the rocks! They’re moving in together! He’s cheating!). It’s enough to make even the biggest fan of Swift’s music feel exhausted. And, lo and behold, WWD published their report of 2012 newsstand sales today, and it looks like Swift’s covers haven’t been the sales coup the publishers were expecting. But why? We have some hypotheses.
We’re not going to lie to you: we’re counting down the days until Spring Breakers comes out in theaters (it’s 9, in case you’re wondering, or sixteen for those of you outside NYC and LA). Clearly, Harper’s Bazaar is banking on others being just as excited, since Selena Gomez, one of the film’s four bikini-clad stars, has just been revealed as their April cover girl.
Who doesn’t love cheese? Who doesn’t love Victoria’s Secret models? Nobody, that’s who. Well, we suppose there are some people…but we certainly don’t know them. For the rest of us, however, Harper’s Bazaar has brought together these two glorious things for the newest installation of The Look with executive editor Laura Brown.
Carine Roitfeld‘s first editorial for Harper’s Bazaar is here! And surprise — there is nary a nipple in sight!
Taking a cue from Harper’s Bazaar, the fashion magazine decides to move from a monthly publication to just ten issues a year.
“Everything I do, I do infinite percent,” Drew Barrymore says in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She’s referring, of course, to her brand new makeup line with Walmart, Flower, but also to motherhood, cooking, winemaking — you name it. Even photoshoots, or so it seems at least, since her Daniel Jackson-lensed cover is one of the best we’ve seen from the magazine in a while.
Red carpet looks don’t get much more memorable than the diaphanous, plunging Versace dress that Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. These days, we barely blink an eye at awards shows when Lady Gaga rolls up in an egg or Nicki Minaj arrives arm in arm with her friend the Pope, but back then, J. Lo’s down-to-there neckline was the stuff front page headlines were made of. But what has become of that attention-grabbing garment?
Oftentimes, fashion magazine covers are all about the clothes and the styling. Other times, it is exactly the opposite, and they feature minimal garments. Harper’s Bazaar Espana‘s January cover most definitely falls into the latter category, and let’s just say that it is memorable. This is obviously NSFW.
Pretty much every major masthead you can think of these days is going to look a lot different this time next year. From beloved editors being ousted after struggling to rake in the ad dollars (Sally Singer at T, for one) to reams of staff leaving for greener ($$) pastures (see Harper’s Bazaar), the industry-wide game of musical chairs has been going on for months now. And with many major positions still left wide open, it shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
Taylor Swift has certainly perfected her girly-girl style. She can always be counted on to wear sparkly gowns and frilly frocks that fit her girl-next-door-gone-glam persona. But all that changes in Harper’s Bazaar December/January issue, in which there’s nary a dress to be found within the cover star’s lengthy spread.
Jean Shrimpton is often credited as the world’s first supermodel, even if she herself is rather unconcerned with the title. “I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it,” she told The Guardian, in an interview last year at her current secluded home operating a hotel in Cornwall, England. But while the The Shrimp may be a reluctant legend, she is a legend nonetheless. So to celebrate her 70th birthday today, we’ve compiled 25 of her best shots throughout the years. Enjoy!
You heard it here first, kids: Cheetos are the hottest trend this season.
The past few months have been filled with editorial changes, the most major of which was Sally Singer‘s departure as the editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Her spot was later filled by WSJ.‘s top dog Deborah Needleman, and now Kristina O’Neill from Harper’s Bazaar has been tapped to head WSJ.
This might just be the most mind-boggling magazine spread we’ve seen in a while — notorious perv Terry Richardson has photographed Oprah Winfrey for Harper’s Bazaar. And get this — she’s fully clothed!
Carine Roitfeld has just been named the new global fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, a Hearst publication.
For the latest installment of The Look, Laura Brown hangs out with “global fashion icon” Elmo and gets a peek into his extensive wardrobe. Seriously, Brown has the coolest job.
