editor’s letter

AS YOU DIVE into this issue just weeks into a new year, I’ll be in Paris at the couture collections. It’s fitting, seeing as an exciting exhibition dedicated to Harper’s Bazaar will be unveiled at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in a little over a month’s time. On February 28, to celebrate the reopening of its fashion galleries after a renovation sponsored by Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzman, the museum will host “First in Fashion,” a retrospective on Bazaar’s history, dating back to its founding in 1867. In our feature on the exhibition, starting on page 144, we look at some of the “firsts” that made Bazaar so groundbreaking. Bazaar was America’s first modern fashion magazine. Its first editor, Mary Louise Booth, was a suffragist, and the publication was among…

how to edit your closet

I’VE BEEN working in fashion for more than 15 years, and along the way I’ve collected my shiny prizes. But having lots of pretty things has never helped me get dressed. At one point I had close to 250 dresses in my closet, layered three to a hanger and stuffed so tightly together, you risked a hernia removing them. And yet I was sure I had nothing to wear So I decided to use my professional skills to edit myself for a change. I started by trying on everything I owned. It took about five hours to zip, button, and shimmy my way through my wardrobe. I soon realized that I really didn’t like a lot of it. Sure, I loved the stories behind how I’d inveigled each item—the bag I…

3 million unread e-mails 2 breakfasts 1 unfinished memoir 5:00 A.M. My dog, Diana, usually wakes me up. She’s so jet-lagged right now because she’s been traveling with me. I can hear her nails on the floor as she walks around the room—I’m a very light sleeper. Nick [Jonas, her husband] isn’t like that at all. He doesn’t wake up. It’s really annoying! So I have to spend some time giving Diana attention, and then we both go back to sleep for a few more hours. I love to sleep. 7:30 A.M. The first thing I do in the morning is put on music. My life has always been pretty musical, and now with Nick it’s completely musical. I decided to date him after seeing the video for “Close,” where his shirt comes…
