I love a dramatic cover. That's why I loved ultraleggy model Nadja Auermann's September 1994 cover of Bazaar. She pierced my soul with her platinum hair, panther eyes, and icy blue feathers. But wait, doesn't Kate Hudson's 2008 W cover look strikingly similar? I don't know if that was intentional, but it's uncanny. I'm a fan of both ladies, and they both pull off this extreme look, so it's double the fun for me.
Here's what she is wearing:
- Dress: BCBG Max Azria
- Belt: Unknown
- Shoes: Juicy Girl
- Bag: Bazaar

A women's fashion magazine (originally Bazar) begun in 1867 by Fletcher Harper and brothers, featuring fashion news and feature articles. Of primary interest were its fashion plates, which came from Berlin's counterpart magazine, Der Bazaar, that featured the latest in European fashion reported to the readers of Harper's Bazaar. The magazine was purchased by William Hearst in 1913 and continues today.
The editor-in-chief of the US version is currently Glenda Bailey. The magazine is published in 18 other countries, including Australia, Greece, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Chile and Russia.

As you all know by now: I love a fashion surprise. Thank you Harper's Bazaar for conceiving something so brilliantly bizarre as this spread in the August issue with the all-American family soon to be on the silver screen, The Simpsons. Illustrated by The Simpsons layout artist, Julius Preite, these fun-filled pages feature the cast in collections and designers from the Fall RTW collections with a special cameo from my favorite all-time supermodel - guess who?!
My favorite bits include the ladies lounging in sultry Versace, Marge's hats, and the ever-bazaar Viktor & Rolf. What do you think? Brilliant? Bizarre? Or, brilliantly bizarre?
