Chronicles of The Past: Celebrating Our 21st Anniversary With Past Cover Stars

Dive into BAZAAR’s long and illustrious history with seven renowned icons who shaped our past, present and future. 

Connected by purpose, power and splendour, seven legends came whirring back into the spotlight to celebrate our 21st anniversary. Anointing themselves as self-made warriors, by dint of their impact, force of personality, style and influence, these icons have bonded over the fact that they all have become historic emblems for the publication. 

Taking a trip down memory lane with big names of the past and present — movie stars, fashion icons, musicians and titans of industry alike — we brought back our past cover men and women to soak in the nostalgia of their past. Not shying away from opportunities, these icons have made it their mission to achieve great things in life — making their voices heard wherever they step in the world.

Meet Our Past Cover Stars:

“When you step into the fashion world, you always have something you want to achieve and being on the cover of Harper’s BAZAAR Malaysia was a dream come true for me.”

Amber Chia, BAZAAR Cover Star February 2011 and April 2013

“Until today, it still feels surreal to me. Coming from a small town in Sabah, I never thought I’d be on the cover of Harper’s BAZAAR Malaysia. It always makes me feel emotional.”

Natalie Prabha, BAZAAR Cover Star September 2022

It was super exciting. This is a famous brand from all over the world and to be asked to be on the cover. I mean, it doesn’t get better than that.”

Deborah Henry, BAZAAR Cover Star December 2007 and August 2011

“It felt like I’ve arrived. It was a great validation to me and the success I’ve had when it came to show biz.”

Bront Palarae, BAZAARMAN Cover Star October 2015

“As somebody who broke a lot of rules, it was such an honour to be accepted and validated.”

Alicia Amin, BAZAAR Cover Star January/February 2022

“It was truly an honour. As an artist, BAZAAR gave me a platform of support and opportunity to just express myself fashionably and beyond.”

Yuna, BAZAAR Cover Star April 2021

It was one of the greatest times of my life and it made me feel like I was on top of the world.”

Sheena Liam, BAZAAR Cover Star May 2014 and January/February 2024
