From Dovima and Jean Shrimpton to Linda, Naomi, Kate and Gisele, Harper’s BAZAAR has launched fashion’s most unforgettable faces. Here, we present some of the most memorable from Harper’s Bazaar: Models (Abrams), a new book by Derek Blasberg that offers a history-spanning look at 28 women who changed fashion and helped bring it to life in the magazine’s pages. The volume also includes an introduction by Glenda Bailey and a foreword by Karl Lagerfeld.
“This book is intended for fashion fans like myself, who aren’t just compelled by an image but also want to know more about the woman behind it. The models here have not only brought to life some of the most iconic moments in fashion photography, but also became the faces of generations,” writes Blasberg in the book’s preface. Divided into chapters by model and with more than 200 photographs from the last 60 years and essays that reveal their lives both on and off set, this gorgeously packaged book offers an inside look at the models of Harper’s BAZAAR.
“The women in this book are all exquisite beauties, but that’s only part of the story. They have elevated their profession beyond modeling fashion, in the traditional sense of the word, to reflect and define our culture at any given moment and, yet, somehow still remain timeless,” writes Harper’s BAZAAR editor in chief Glenda Bailey in the book’s introduction.
