Harper’s Bazaar US got a makeover last March with bigger size and new layout designed by Robert Derrick (formerly at British Vogue) and Stephen Gan. but we think the makeover didn’t matter much on their newsstands cover. It’s still boring, repetitive, and unattractive. Perhaps, Carine Roitfeld appointment as Harper’s Bazaar‘s Global Fashion Director last October could bring something fresh to this Glenda Bailey‘s monthly edited fashion publication. But we are doubting that, until we see her first collaboration with the magazine next March.
Their March, April, September and November issue are quite interesting. Maybe it’s because their sleek new fonts and a great Gwyneth Paltrow shot? Maybe it’s because Mila Kunis? Maybe because the bold pink Alexis Mabille headpiece that popped? Or maybe because the matching gold backdrop and dress? Only those four newsstands covers that stole our attention this year.
The subscriber covers were quite decent this year and to be honest, they are even better than the newsstand version. Our favourite pick for subs are Rihanna‘s August, Gwen‘s September and Kate Hudson‘s October issue. The rest of the cover star slot were given to Demi Moore/February (Ugh, worst cover of the year!), Penelope Cruz/May, Kate Moss/June-July, and Taylor Swift/December-January 2013.
Gwyneth Paltrow landed the honour to be featured for the newly revamped (the size is bigger for sure) issue of Harper’s Bazaar US! The 39 year old actress was photographed by the magazine’s regular photographer, Terry Richardson.
We can’t wait to get the issue in our hand and check the new Bazaar worked by Robin Derrick, former creative director of British Vogue and Stephen Gan, the magazine’s creative director!
