Today Harper’s Bazaar unveiled Carine Roitfeld’s latest fashion portfolio that will appear in all 29 editions—even the premiere German and Japanese offerings–of the oldest fashion glossy. Called Singular Beauties, the spread is an homage to the diversity of women that stars actresses, singers, and models of various sizes, ages, races, and heights styled to perfection.
Karl Lagerfeld shot the spread of beauties but it was Roitfeld’s vision she conceptualized, cast and styled with Stephen Gan, Harper’s Bazaar’s creative director. Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Fanning, and Lilly Collins got animated with the help of a well-placed fan dressed in Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu, respectively. Shapely stunners like Candice Huffine and Gabourey Sidibe showed designer looks can be paired perfectly on someone who isn’t a straight size in pieces from Céline and Loewe. Hollywood royalty like Zoe Kravitz and Kenya Kinski rocked Fendi and Jay Z favorite, Tom Ford. Speaking of musicians, rapper Angel Haze and Grimes turned things up in Giorgio Armani and Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. But there are so many more lovely ladies like Karen Elson in Chanel, modeling legend Carmen Dell’Orefice in Rick Owens, and Liberty Ross in Dolce & Gabbana you won’t want to miss!
You can see the rest of the spread when it hits newsstands, but here is a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot to tide us over.
