Carine Roitfeld, one of the world’s biggest fashion editors, for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar prepared a portfolio entitled ” Icons “, waiting to be unveiled on August 19. “ This is a portfolio I’ve been dreaming of wanting to do even over my 30 years in the business“, said Roitfeld. “ You need a magazine that has big shoulders for such a project.”
Shot by Sebastian Faena, with creative direction by Stephen Gan, the portfolio – which will appear in all 30 editions of Harper’s Bazaar – includes Lady Gaga, Penélope Cruz, Linda Evangelista, Lara Stone, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Mariacarla Boscono, Joan Smalls, Stephanie Seymour, Isabeli Fontana, Laetitia Casta, Carolyn Murphy, Monica Bellucci, Gigi Hadid, Brooke Shields, Eva Herzigova, Iman, Stacy Martin and Lauren Hutton.
Former editor in chief at Condé Nast, for 10 years, given her innovative spirit Carine launched the biannual CR Fashion Book and now, sees the light another dream of hers – 30 countries having the same story, at the same time. A desire to introduce Harper’s Bazaar readers from less fashion-savvy countries like Romania, Poland and Ukraine to her vision on fashion.
The covers feature pop star Lady Gaga – in Chanel jacket, hat and skirt, which Roitfeld herself cut shorter, with the approval of Karl Lagerfeld – supermodel Linda Evangelista – wrapped in Comme des Garçons knits – and Penelope Cruz – in Dior.
