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.
