Featured Article: Harper’s Bazaar UK 2013 Covers Recap


There are some hit and miss in this year’s Bazaar UK covers line up. For example, Anne Hathaway‘s February and Scarlett Johansson‘s October issue. They could’ve done so much better with such great actresses.

It seems like elegant minimalism is the theme for their newsstand covers in 2013. Soft color tones, safe model-ish poses, and well known cover stars are their signatures this year.

Some standout newsstand covers from this monthly fashion publication edited by Justine Picardie were featuring Karen Elson‘s strong pose by Alexi Lubomirski, Carey Mulligan‘s serene face by Tom Allen, Stella Tennant‘s dreamy cover by Cathleen Naundorf, Jennifer Lawrence‘s striking feature by Ben Hassett, and Cate Blanchett‘s elegant yet poised image shot also by Ben Hassett.

Harper’s Bazaar UK presented at least 21 version of subscriber covers this year. From those minimalist images of famous faces (Sienna Miller, Michelle Dockery, Natalia Vodianova, Kate Winslet, Lara Stone, Karl Lagerfeld + Choupette, and Dree Hemmingway), to the amazing images with vintage feeling from Cathleen Naundorf, to the artsy illustration by the talented Gary Hume.

Featured Article: Harper’s Bazaar UK 2012 Covers Recap


This year, the covers line up from Harper’s Bazaar UK are quite feast to the eyes. The color combination were lovely such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s January issue by Tom Munro, Georgia May Jagger‘s March issue by Alexi Lubomirski, Victoria Beckham‘s May issue by Camilla Akrans, and Miranda Kerr‘s August newsstand cover by Giampaolo Sgura.

We also love the selection of their cover stars which were exciting i.e Cate Blanchett for April issue by Alexi Lubomirski, Florence Welch for July issue by Camilla Akrans, Keira Knightley for September issue by Ellen von Unwerth, Laetitia Casta and Joan Smalls for October issue by Sebastian Faena, Salma Hayek for November issue by Paola Kudacki, and Marion Cotillard for December issue by Ben Hassett.

Harper’s Bazaar UK didn’t amused us with their February and June issue. They got Uma Thurman and Cameron Diaz on the covers, but the magazine didn’t do any justice for both great actors. It was incredibly boring. They should’ve made far better covers with different art direction.

Overall, 2012 has been a good year for Harper’s Bazaar UK. Hopefully they will producing better covers next year. Especially after Justine Picardie took over the Editor-in-Chief position from Lucy Yeomans (she joined Net A Porter earlier this year) in August. The magazine was helmed by acting editor Jenny Dickinson of Elle UK for few months before Picardie took over the position. Dickinson will stay at the title as consultant editor until the end of the year.
