We’ve binged on enough episode of E! True Hollywood Story to learn two sacred truths: Till death due us part has carries very little weight and the ‘money is no object’ lifestyle can only last for so long. With that said, it’s refreshing to learn that Kate Hudson, who is not just a certified A-lister but a style star in her own right, doesn’t think that a new repertoire of designer clothes each season is affordable.
Want to know the secret to winning the heart of Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Jessica Hart, Corey Baptise or Tyson Ritter? Is it roses? Surprise candlelit dinners? Expensive juice-pressing machines?
Continuing their slew of phenomenal covers, Harper’s Bazaar has served up a doozy for the month of November. This one features the always age-defying, ever-relevant Madonna.
If only the runways could be as diverse as Carine’s take on the fabled star-crossed lovers.
We were Team Anna throughout the did-they-or-didn’t-they cancellation of Miley Cyrus’ December Vogue cover last week, but perhaps Condé Nast underestimated Cyrus’ tongue-retracting ability.
As of late, we’ve been sashaying between between throwing shade at Miley Cyrus, being embarrassed for the ratchet white girl, and housing more jealousy for the country-cum-hip-hop-star than we’d like to admit. We’ve been especially bitter since Miley got a shout out on Magna Carta Holy Grail, but now that she has a full spread in Harper’s BAZAAR’s September issue, in full-on haute couture amidst a Parisian palace no less, we’re practically banging our heads against our desks.
Harper’s BAZAAR went for a major fashion trifecta for its September issue having cover star Sarah Jessica Parker photographed by Terry Richardson and interviewed by Cathy Horyn. The results on both fronts are just as awe-inspiring as you’d expect with SJP looking ageless in a strappy, shimmery gold sequin Marc Jacobs dress on the cover, and her getting uncharacteristically candid about her marriage and family inside the profile.
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.
While no fashion magazine we’re aware of has ever put a terrorist on the cover, it’s not like the industry is immune to controversy. Whether it’s underage models, racial sterotyping, an abundance of skin, a shortage of body fat or any combination of these things, it seems every new turn gives us reason to peek a little closer for a bad weave or a horrifically amputated limb.
Holy. Naomi. Campbell. We’ve been wetting ourselves over Laura Brown’s tweets and ‘grams about the latest episode of The Look, and after we watched it, we promptly emptied our overexcited bladders again.
What happens when two saucy ladies meet at Serendipity? Gold — of the comedy and ice cream variety, that is. As part of her web series The Look, Harper’s BAZAAR executive editor Laura Brown invited Sofia Vergara to the legendary NYC dessert institution for some good ol’ ladies-who-lunch chitchat.
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?
