    Today is her last day as EIC of Bazaar.
    So her last issue is June?

    Indeed. Imagine what Bazaar could've looked like if they would've appointed Carine as Editor-in-Chief ten years ago right after she left Vogue Paris? Now it's too late for really anyone to save the magazine.

    Seems like it's confimed...

    wwd

    Good on Hearst for hiring a woman of colour to take over the EIC position, but quite frankly I'm not anticipating this overhaul at all; this is going to be #vanityfair2018reboot all over again. Nasr's work is the epitome of dull. I don't think I can remember a single editorial she's done. The fashion stories are going to look like a reboot of US Elle circa 2010/11.

    Likewise! I’m all for a POC at the helm of one of the major glossies in the US but I’d chosen almost anyone over Samira. Elaine Welteroth maybe? Like you said, I can’t think of a single editorial I can remember liking. Also stylists don’t make great editors and even her brand credentials are so very dull. I guess no one really wanted the job after all.

    I really hope I eat crow though!!! A resurgent Bazaar would be amazing.

    i’m here for a elle circa 2010/11 move. Better than Glenda HB. Could someone post any work of Nars?

    She lost me at "As the daughter of a Lebanese father..."

    There's nothing wrong with that, but that statement felt like a selling point to SJWs to get their stamp of validation to HBs appointment.

    This is like Hearst's "we are diverse" statement, sans the fact that these are the same people who allowed Glenda Bailey to run a predominantly white magazine.

    “There’s nothing wrong with that” just don’t shove it in my face right?! And don’t go throwing a parade about it. I can definitely relate to your statement. For all the wrong reasons. Or maybe for the reasons intended. Who knows.

    Why are you so angry? I saw Kerry Washington’s IG story about Samira’s appointment and came over here and sure enough, here’s you railing about ‘SJWs’. Twice on the three pages I read.

    Samira can be considered white passing. Why is it such a problem for you for her to exert her identity, that she’s proud of, being a black woman? Would you say the same for a woman asserting her sexual identity as a lesbian? Or does only race set you off?

    And speaking of race, Samir was Kerry’s first stylist and her friend. And she’s best friends with Tracee Ellis Ross. Maybe those women will finally get their long overdue covers for HB since Bailey’s HB was so white washed. That’s a good thing. Again, why are you so angry?

    I don’t think it was for anyone to look for validation as it was to bring light to the topic that America is changing, its evolving, its diversifying.

    HB has been stuck in the 2000’s up until Glenda’s departure. Her work was better suited for a little magazine you pick up at the theatre that highlights movie stars and up-and-coming films to see. Glenda persistently recycled the same white-washed celebrities over and over and through poor attempts at looking like Michael Bay at a fashion shoot.

    I LOVE that she opened up to us about her family, culture, diverse stance on fashion and politics. Wether this was a marketing stint on the magazines behalf I imagine seeing so many people of diverse background being in awe that they can grow up to be EIC of one of America’s (hopefully soon to be) greatest fashion magazines.

    And I'm the angry one?

    You equally lost me from the time you took it upon yourself to police everyone who don't share the same thoughts as you.

    Have a good day.

    Admittedly, it’s nice to see a mature woman of ME descent head this publication. I’ve always associated effortlessly and timelessly stylish with many ME women— my BFF’s mum comes to mind with her looking like a dead ringer for Jean Seberg and in OG YSL in the 70s. But then again, garish, gaudy and super-sparkly is also associated with ME "style”…. Samira gives me the vibe of the former, although her work unfortunately comes off rather dull/forgettable. Hopefully she will surround herself with a strong talented team much the way that Liz had and this will be the Second Coming of American Bazaar’s “Enter The Age Of Elegance”….

    (But I doubt it since this era is all about identity-politics and bland/accessible/relatable/safe fashion imagery. …So zzzzzzz is what I'm expecting….)

    Her work for VF is not that remarkable. It's decent and suitable for VF, I'd admit that. However, she'll grow a lot more in HB. Really hoping she elevates the magazine and give Nina a run for her money.

    Also, she's one to watch for US Vogue!

    More anger and defensiveness over a EIC appointment. Yikes. People are dying over a pandemic and police brutality. Get some perspective.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to Samira’s appointment, I’m rooting for her success unlike the cynical, angry mob on these forums who always look for reasons to put people down instead of lift people up. Or at least give them the benefit of the doubt and the opportunity to prove themselves.

    Better hope and pray that she appoints a smart creative director because she previously had a lot of control under Robbie, and definitely more under Radhika, yet the talent she surrounded herself with made the mediocrity of her work even more apparent.

    This appointment does nothing for me and obviously my opinion of her is solely based on her edits. If they had to appoint someone of colour, why not Solange Franklin?
    But who knows, maybe terrible stylists make great EICs because great stylists certainly make terrible EICs. See Anne Marie, Leith.... uhm....Aaaa...lllll.....tttt. :ninja:

    ^^^ Yes, Andre Leon Talley was an absolutely awful editor.

    LOL and before this world pandemic and protests of police brutality, there is war in the ME and gay men are murdered in the ME and Africa... the world has always been an unjust and violent place. And yet we still continue to discuss and be critical of fashion. Being critical of Samira is no different. Or is it just being critical of a POC is off limits???

    Good for her. She is very nice in person. Her work is average at best though...

    I feel like she will bring Yashua Simmons, her former assistant and former fashion editor at Out. He is really not good at all.

    On her work solely, she has nothing to do Harper's Bazaar imagery (not the Glenda one, before her. Glenda was a long and big mistake) but will see.

    We all can be surprised. I hope.

    Oh God, you should see his edit in the latest issue of Marie Claire. :wacko:
    And it featured Nicole Richie, someone who loves fashion and would be willing to experiment.
