UK Bazaar March '06 - Cate Blanchett
Just read a news story in the online Independent, which says of the cover:

"...[the editor] has persuaded Cate Blanchett to be photographed with an elephant and will use a giant blow-up of the image as the centrepiece of her party next week. The picture, which will be the cover of the first UK issue of Harper's Bazaar for 36 years..."

The issue is out on the 9th Feb.

Cathy from fashist

Sorry mods - didn't remember to put the issue date second to the mag title, so you'll have to sort me out there with a bit of moderator magic, so it reads right.

yes I have that copy of the Independent (needed waiting room reading material).

It's a beautiful photo...Cate looks superb. It's basically a take on the classic Avedon photo with (can't remember her name) wearing Dior.

Ooh....can't wait. I adore Cate Blanchett. I wanna get this copy in pristine condition - could be a collector's item!

Bought the issue today (and used by £1 off token as found in last month's issue). On first impressions, I don't find the inside to be radically redesigned from when it was H&Q. I've said over at fashist, that my instant reaction was that they've gone for a mix of fonts, like a lot of new mags do, when they're finding their feet in a new identity and that there's a tiny whiff of French Vogue in some places, just in the way they've set out a certain page, here and there. I'll need a day or so to properly sit down and assess the layout.

Anyway, quick details: the cover and the Cate edit inside, shot by Norman Jean Roy, 8 pgs plus a bit of an interview.

CIRCUS DE LA MODE is shot by Matt Jones, it's a burlesque take on the circus theme, with various fashion people accompanying Dita von Teese, such as Antonio Berardi, Christian Louboutin, Stephen Jones, Giles Deacon, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Roland Mouret, Christopher Bailey, Matthew Wiliamson and hubbie Marilyn Manson. 14 pgs.

FREESTYLE is an studio edit with Flavia @ Ford, shot by Satoshi Saikusa. 10 pgs.

ORIGINAL SKIN is Bianca Balti shot by Michaelangelo Di Battisti. 10 pgs

I've left out any mention of the adverts & articles - such as one about author Siri Husvedt and iconic fashion editor Carmen Snow, I'll try to do a fuller review for tomorrow.

*Elegantly Waisted - The truth about Carmel Snow, US HB editor
*Cirque de la Monde - Dita Von Teese editorial with designers. (May scan this later if I'm not too tired)
*Freestyle - Brit take on international looks

Cate Blanchett is stunning. I wouldn't mind if mags put her on the cover every month.

Here's the Cate photoshoot - it really is stunning and the article shows how earthy she is (thought that anyway!).

In celebration of the relaunch of Harper's Bazaar in the UK, Harrods used pieces from their store to recreate covers of the past (I love stuff like this!! ). I think it's a great way of doing promotion for Harrods without blatantly advertising 'THIS IS HARRODS!'.
