With seasonal trends the hot topic, September is a big month for the Fashion Mags. Harpers Bazaar has stolen a march on its rivals with the online release of an inspired collection of images slated for their September issue. Featuring the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, and many more besides, dressed and styled as legendary women, both fictional and real –– think Glinda the Good Witch, Joan of Arc, Coco Chanel –– it’s a visionary editorial pointing to the powerful beauty of iconic females. See all the pictures in the notes.
Now that baby boomers are gentrified, counterculture is no longer cool. But the ‘60s generation did do some good. The stylish dressing of the mods made a lasting impression, and their coveted styles are having another moment. Harper’s Bazaar Mexico produced this retro cover story for their November issue. Starring Esther Heesch doing her best Twiggy impression, there’s optical prints, mini skirts and A-lines, and there’s a classic cropped cut, doll-like, androgynous, and bold and blonde and youthful. See all the images and get inspiration for 60s-inspired fal/winter looks in the style notes.
Harper’s Bazaar is making quite a statement in its September issue. Not content with one iconic woman, the style resource for “women who are the first to buy the best, from casual to couture” ups the stakes with three celebrity superstars on three different covers. In the musical corner, goes Gaga; for the actor’s guild, comes Cruz; and batting for supermodels, it’s Linda Evangelista. See all the covers and pick your favorite in the style notes.
She may be willing to court controversy while on the home soil of the CFDA Awards, but the Ra-Ra, clearly didn’t think a see-through dress would wash in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. But whatever the reason the pop star chose to go for demure bodysuits, hoods and head wraps, all covered in sequins, in this cover shoot, we are sure glad she did. She looks sophisticated, stylish and classy, and the shots offer some great hair accessory ideas. See the full spread in the style notes.
