Harper's Bazaar is America's longest-running fashion magazine, revered for its style-setting contributions to fashion, photography, and graphic design. Under the direction of Glenda Bailey in this decade, the magazine has maintained its position as a prominent cultural icon. Bailey is known for commissioning dazzling visual features that frame fashion in the context of contemporary pop culture and aesthetics. Shot by well-known photographers and featuring supermodels and supercelebrities, Bazaar's fashion photography is always beautiful-and entertaining. Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits is a collection of more than 300 photographs that chronicle the best fashion of our time. A celebration of fashion, a romp through a riotous and eventful decade, and a banquet of contemporary imagery, Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits is also a glamorous object in itself.

Praise for Harper''s Bazaar

"So if you love pop culture and you love fashion, you''ll want to pick up a copy of Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits, a new book that's packed with both."

"The images, taken by some of the world's greatest photographers, are awe-inspiring."
-ARTINFO

"It's been 10 years since editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey took the reins at Harper's Bazaar, and the magazine is celebrating the milestone with a splashy coffee table book. Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits (Abrams) illustrates Bailey and creative director Stephen Gan's tenure through more than 300 colorful images, organized chronologically. The mag's memorable moments also include essays from luminaries like Patti Smith and our own Arianna Huffington, who wrote about the politics of fashion prior to the 2008 presidential election."
