The upcoming September 2009 issue of Harper's Bazaar pays tribute to Michael Jackson, with a spirited tongue-in-cheek editorial.

British top model Agyness Deyn poses as Michael Jackson for famed photographer Terry Richardon. She embodies the different styles and characters of the late King of Pop's career, including his iconic Thriller and Bad personas.

Agyness is accompanied by an adorable Chimpanzee, who plays the role of the famous Bubbles.
