dare to dream

SINCE I WAS A KID I have been passionate about fashion — obsessed with fashion, as my mum loves to tell my daughters. So in 2012, when I became editor of one of the most powerful fashion media brands in the world, it was hard to believe. It was a pinch-me moment. A pinch-me-100-times moment! It was a dream I dared not have, as it seemed so impossible. The moral is: dare to dream. Which brings me to the incredible milestone Harper’s BAZAAR Australia celebrates this month: our 20th anniversary. How do you celebrate such a milestone? Two decades of fabulous fashion moments, pop culture trends, breathtaking photography and radical change. To be in the editor’s chair at this point of BAZAAR’s history is an amazing gift, so when the…

a bazaar is born

“20 YEARS — IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY,” says Karin Upton Baker, Harper’s BAZAAR Australia’s first editor, as she reminisces with the magazine’s first creative director, Eric Matthews, about their debut issue. To be sure, some things haven’t changed at all over the past two decades. Baker still works with Matthews, but at Hermès Australia, where she has been managing director since 2001. Her choice of cover star, Nicole Kidman, has also been a stayer. Twenty years ago, Kidman was filming EyesWide Shut alongside then husband Tom Cruise in London. Today, the actor is fresh off a stellar 2017, winning a Golden Globe for her role as Celeste in Big Little Lies last month, as well as appearing in Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake: China Girl and Sofia Coppola’s The…

CARINE ROITFELD “I love diversity, and when looking for models I’m always searching for someone who will introduce us to more of what the world has to offer,” says BAZAAR’s global fashion director, who styled a series of fresh faces for her S/S 2018 collections shoot on page 155. “Look 1” plays to Roitfeld’s strengths — she has a knack for championing the next big things in the modelling world. “I’m always looking for an emotion, a new idea of beauty, like Lara Stone, whom I was the first to book. I found her full of emotion. Or Halima [Aden], who represents a new style of beauty and an openness to the world.” In the future I hope … “designers will still have the liberty to create and to make us dream,…

inspired by what you’ve seen in bazaar ?

TRIP PLANNER It is the standard “New year, new me” posts I am saturated with after a quick Insta scroll on the first day of the new year. Switching the screen off, I make an exquisite brekkie for one, with a cup of tea and the latest issue of BAZAAR. Happy New Year me! Then it hits me: a resounding sense of inspiration and yes! after reading Tracey Withers’s “Going it Alone” [BAZAAR January/ February]. As a newly single woman, heartbroken after the end of a five-year relationship, I’m planning a month of soul searching in South America alone. With my inner sanctum of friends either married, newly engaged or with a bub on the way, I can’t help but feel this might be my last chance to voyage across the…

cover star margot robbie

The I, Tonya star and Oscar nominee’s awards-season red-carpet marathon is in its advanced stages and Robbie’s look has remained consistent throughout: think a series of nude or black gowns with offbeat feminine details from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Prada and Gucci. Her off-duty style, she says, is as diverse as her choice of acting roles: “I don’t think I have a recognisable personal style — it changes. I love ’90s stuff since doing I, Tonya.” When the actor does get some rare time to herself, she favours Australian brands. “I do all my shopping in Australia,” she says. “When I’m wearing stuff overseas and people ask me what label it is, I say ‘Aussie brands’. I tell you, you can’t find it over there — Zimmermann does have…
