Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India December 2020, issue: This issue of Harper’s Bazaar features the spirited Ananya Panday on its cover: a young actor who is determined to look at the brighter side of life and overcome all obstacles. This month’s issue is also a dedication to the latest trends—in fashion, such as festive brights, bold metallics, and fantasy couture; in accessories, with breathtaking artworks reimagining styles by leading designers; and in art, culture, as well as home décor. There are interviews with the likes of Shabana Azmi on concepts of masculinity and beauty; essays on women in Indian cinema by filmmakers like Nandita Das and Shonali Bose; and a special series where 15 trendsetters rummage through their wardrobes, and memories, to share how they created their own signature style. For skincare enthusiasts, 22 Bazaar contributors share the one homegrown beauty product that they swear by, and ending the year on a hopeful note, artists, poets, and photographers come together to express their hopes for the future. Got travel on your mind? Designer Raghavendra Rathore opens up the doors to his home and palace, Ajit Bhawan, a boutique hotel that is steeped in culture and beauty.
Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India April 2016, issue: The April issue of Harper's Bazaar India is dedicated this issue to journeys of all kinds. Take our cover stars, for instance. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor have both traversed afar in their careers, and in Ki & Ka, explore unconventional roles: She’s a career woman and he’s a house husband. Then there’s Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto, who has become an icon of punk style. She has designed a fashion line for big girls that’s already making waves. You’ll also meet author Polly Vernon, whose new book, Hot Feminist, is being talked about everywhere, and should be on your holiday reading list. In beauty, there are expert tips on how to look glowing and fresh straight off a plane, and the best makeup crayons you need to pack. In features, there are the books that have made the journey from being social media successes to legit literature. Then there is the next big food revolution that’s taking over the culinary world: Cooking with trash. We’ve also got the definitive guide to the world’s best hotels, and some of the most mouth-watering food trails you could follow (thank us later). In fashion, we celebrate the power of film with Cinema Cinema, a photo feature dedicated to iconic movies set in destinations like Venice and Egypt. Chanel’s pre-Fall 2016 show that took place at Rome’s iconic Cinecittà (founded in ‘37 by Mussolini, no less) in December last year showed us how inspirational a culture can be. We also travel to Thailand where summer’s hottest hue, orange, blends in beautifully with the country’s russet-robed monks and crumbling brick temples. In the end, a journey is more in the mind than on the road, and we invite you to take this one with us, page by page.
