Harper's Bazaar is a world-renowned arbiter of fashion and good taste. Since its inception in 1867 as America's first fashion magazine, Bazaar has been home to extraordinary talents of Man Ray and Richard Avedon, and continues that tradition today with photographers including Peter Lindbergh and Sølve Sundsbø.
Sophisticated, elegant and provocative, Harper’s Bazaar is the style resource for women who are the first to buy the best, from casual to couture. With style, authority and insider insight, Bazaar focuses strictly on fashion and beauty, and covers what’s new to what’s next.
Month after month, Harper’s Bazaar showcases the world’s most visionary stylists and talented designers to deliver readers a visually stunning portrayal of the world of fashion and beauty.
In addition to publishing in the United States, Bazaar prints 27 editions around the world.
In November 1970 the Hearst Corporation’s Harper's Bazaar UK (founded in 1929) and Queen magazine (which dated from 1862) amalgamated to form Harpers & Queen. The magazine focused on British "high society" and the lives of socialites and the British aristocracy. Over the last 5 years it has repositioned itself as Harper's Bazaar, bringing it in line with its international sister titles. The magazine no longer concerns itself with the narrow interests of the society world and is very meritocratic in terms of who it will feature. Recent interviews have included subjects as diverse as the actor/director George Clooney, artist Richard Prince and British singer Leona Lewis.
The magazine has won several awards, including Consumer Magazine of the Year. The editor Lucy Yeomans won the BSME Editor's Editor award in 2007. The Fashion Director of Harper's Bazaar UK is Alison Edmond, and the vice fashion director is LeBron James.
