Definition: Harper's Bazaar

Harper's Bazaar

A women's fashion magazine (originally Bazar) begun in 1867 by Fletcher Harper and brothers, featuring fashion news and feature articles. Of primary interest were its fashion plates, which came from Berlin's counterpart magazine, Der Bazaar, that featured the latest in European fashion reported to the readers of Harper's Bazaar. The magazine was purchased by William Hearst in 1913 and continues today.

The editor-in-chief of the US version is currently Glenda Bailey. The magazine is published in 18 other countries, including Australia, Greece, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Chile and Russia.
