From Celebrity Covers to Controversial Photo Spreads

 - Oct 24, 2011
Up there on the list of the world's top high fashion magazines with the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair and Elle, is Harper's Bazaar. The very well respected American magazine was first published in 1867 by Hearst publishing company.

It regards itself as the guide for "women who are the first to buy the best, from casual to couture." Harper's Bazaar is not a regular trendy magazine like Cosmopolitan or InStyle, but rather focuses on legitimately good quality writing, as well as some incredible fashion editorial spreads. Harper's Bazaar has hosted some of Hollywood's biggest names on its covers and in its pages.

The magazine also has editions in 26 other countries in the world, including Japan, China, Australia, India and Russia, among many others. Take a look through this list of Harper's Bazaar editorials to see just how influential this magazine is.
