editor’s letter

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.I have a feeling our SEPTEMBER COVER will cause controversy. It seems whatever Mr and MrsWest do, they divide a room. Love them or loathe them, undeniably, Kim Kardashian West has redefined modern celebrity. She is a reality TV star like we have never seen before and she is not afraid to use the power of social media to cause an international media frenzy (à la her takedown of Taylor Swift in July). And Kanye, well, he’s Kanye, and won’t be apologising anytime soon for anything. As someone who has worked in the media for almost two decades, I see two very clever businesspeople who absolutely own their image. In the late 1990s, the fashion world saw the end of the supermodel era, and the…

PEYTON KNIGHT: GETTY IMAGES: LISA PRYOR: ALANA LANDSBERRY.Lisa Pryor "Both journalism and medicine involve listening carefully to people, looking for clues and putting the information together into a kind of story.

My advice for someone thinking about studying and working at the same time is to…

cover stars kim & kanye

“Kim had something very interesting because she created a new shape of the body. For me, I’m so skinny and so small, it’s what excited me — to see someone with such a shape and body,”Harper’s BAZAAR’ global fashion director, Carine Roitfeld, tells BAZAAR US creative director Stephen Gan on why she chose Kardashian West to be part of her annual “Icons” shoot. Kardashian West appears alongside husband Kanye, who she says is a big influence on her look. “It’s hard to find things that are unique and also fit my body type, and that are ahead of the curve and ahead of the game. I think that’s where Kanye comes in, because I swear he sees everything a few steps ahead of anyone else. I always say, ‘If he…
