editor’s letter

THIS YEAR, Harper’s BAZAAR Australia celebrates its 20th anniversary (I hope you didn’t miss our special March birthday edition starring Margot Robbie). As we were planning the March issue, I spent a lot of time going through old editions as fashion magazines are such a beautiful snapshot of the time they were published. I just love seeing what was trending back then and what still resonates today. As this is our bumper Beauty Issue, I thought I’d revisit our first issue, from 1998, to see what we were obsessing about back then. Red lipstick:“the equivalent of the little black dress.A symbol of elegance.”We were also literally bathing in milk (lactic acid). Remember The Body Shop’s Milk Bath? And Melbourne beauty entrepreneur Jo Horgan had just launched a little beauty store called Mecca Cosmetica that…

SAM ROLLINSON “I’ve had short hair for about six years now and I absolutely love it. My hair is quite thick, so having it really long like when I was younger would just be a nightmare — my mum deserves a medal for all the hairstyles she used to do to tame it,” says the British model whose signature bob frames the sheer makeup looks in “Full Transparency”, on page 128. I look after my skin by … “cleansing, toning and moisturising twice a day.Also, I’ve just got into those sheet masks that look terrifying but which make your skin feel like a baby’s after wearing them.” Right now, I’m reading … “The Power by Naomi Alderman. It’s a brilliant thriller and a very thought-provoking book.” My favourite pair of shoes are … “these…

inspired by what you’ve seen in bazaar ?

BRITTANY’S STRENGTH Your article featuring Australia’s [Olympic] gold medallist Brittany Elmslie [“The Year that Changed My Life”, BAZAAR April] rang very true for me. It’s far too easy to forget that underneath our social media veneers, people may be struggling with difficult and frightening realities like those Brittany details in the article. I feel there is an excess of positive-thinking mantras, positivity-only zones, etc., but while positivity is wonderful, focusing on being strong and resilient is the backbone of the ‘positivity’ we all speak of. Having the right support systems, or if they are lacking, using the resources in our society to find support, is imperative in dealing with the curveballs of life. Particularly in our current time, when jobs are fewer and online bullying has taken many young lives through suicide.…

In her sit-down with BAZAAR, the model reveals that skin is the major focus of her beauty routine. “I love La Mer moisturiser for when I’m flying or in cooler climates, or La Solution 10 de Chanel for something lighter. Serums are also super important for deeper penetration under moisturiser. Currently I’m using CosMedix Serum 16, which was recommended to me by [facialist] Melanie Grant,” she says. “I’ve also recently found an amazing Australian label called Rationale — I use the Beautiful Skin Superfluid, which is great for use in Australia as it’s SPF 50 and has sheer, luminous coverage. Makeup-wise, I cover my under-eye circles with YSL Touche Éclat and give myself a touch of colour across my apples with Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick. But my mantra for skin…

wish list

I like to keep my look pretty EASY and simple, and accessorise with a STATEMENT PIECE [3, 16]. My favourite daytime look is jeans [4] and a VINTAGE concert T-shirt [2] with sneakers [11] or suede boots [10]. I love the signature CAMERA BAG by Coach [5], and I can’t wait to wear the Coach x KEITH HARING ZigZag Crewneck Sweater [9]. Stuart [Vevers] is one of the COOLEST DESIGNERS out there and he has TRANSFORMED Coach into something YOUNG and fun [1, 15], while still keeping the CLASSICS. I love Louis Vuitton handbags from the JEFF KOONS collab [14]. I believe in a clean, FRESH look. I wash my face, apply moisturiser [13], put on some MASCARA [8] and lip balm [6] and go about my day. For my…
