The American version of Harper’s Bazaar has positively been a subject of dialog on our boards currently. Particularly since Glenda Bailey introduced her departure and Samira Nasr took the reins. We’ve been clearly anticipating the journal’s reply to the worldwide pandemic and the wait is lastly over. For Summer season 2020, the magazine treats us to 6 covers celebrating “Voices of Hope”. Christy Turlington, Allyson Felix, Ashley Graham, Consultant Lauren Underwood, Dr. Leana Wen together with Melissa DeRosa had been all photographed over Zoom by Mario Sorrenti.
The covers clearly got here as a shock to our discussion board members. “This isn’t American Harper’s Bazaar for me. As a lot as I hated Glenda, I need to admit I’m already nostalgic for her overly-airbrushed, text-stacked, busy covers…” commented aracic.
