Eeeeek! Nothing excites me more than when the 90s supers show up again. And Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue is making it happen. Because my girls are back. The well respected fashion magazine asked super talented stylist Carine Roitfeld to select and style an awesome lineup of legendary faces for a portfolio titled “Icons” – and it’s fancy. Beauties featured in the 17-page piece include Lady Gaga, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford (looking better than ever in Tom Ford and demonstrating that a sequin pencil skirt is a must for fall), Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour, Brook Shields, , Iman, Lauren Hutton, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Penelope Cruz and more.
What makes the layout even cooler is that it will appear in all 30 international editions of Harper’s Bazaar. The special issue, the magazine’s largest ever, will have three different covers including Lady Gaga (in Chanel), Penelope Cruz (in Dior), and Linda Evangelista (in Comme des Garcons). Interestingly, I read an article about a brief survey on which covers readers liked the most and, of course, Linda won by far. Because she’s legendary – and people love the 90s supermodels!
Carine Roitfeld started her role as Bazaar’s global fashion director two years ago and said she’s been dreaming of doing this portfolio for years. Mission accomplished. Watch for the issue to hit newsstands August 19th (I’ll be buying a few copies). Preview the full collection of photos on harpersbazaar.com. And check out the behind the screens video below.
