Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India March - 2021, issue:
As Bazaar celebrates its 12th Anniversary, we turn to our special theme of Connect and Collaborate. The power packed issue features several powerful voices from the fashion, art, beauty, and entrepreneur fields.
Covergirl Sonam Kapoor Ahuja turns muse in the freshest couture collections, photographed in a 17th-century mansion in London, as she speaks about about her family, her husband, and the relationships that have influenced her throughout her life. Parliamentarian Mahua Moitra opens up about her life and her inner-truth that inspires her to continue speaking up for change. And Dia Mirza champions environmental rights as she relives the memories of growing up around nature, and brings up the urgent changes we need to make to protect our planet’s future.
In the spirit of sisterhood, four leading families of India pose for Bazaar and share their precious learnings from each other—Shobha De and her daughters, Barkha Dutta and sister Bahar Dutt, and more. Leading Indian designers also invite us into their ateliers—Rahul Mishra, Tarun Tahiliani, Shantanu & Nikhil, Namrata Joshipura, Pankaj & Nidhi, among others—to honour the faces and hands behind each exquisite garments: the karigars who have spent their lives perfecting their craft. And in a special collaboration, couturier JJ Valaya photographs the leading thinkers and talents of India as they speak about their favourite books—Shashi Tharoor, Sanjana Sanghi, Karuna Nundy, AD Singh, Neeti Palta, and Palak Shah.
Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas speaks about her latest book and her views on life, while designer and entrepreneur Waris Ahluwalia takes a journey with his memories of tea. And celebrated lensman Raghu Rai and his wife Gurmeet Rai share their first-ever collaboration in penning a book together. Finally, in beauty, India’s most iconic supermodels share with us how their perception of their own looks and beauty has evolved over the years, and a special travel story traces American novelist Ernest Hemingway’s life in Cuba.
A celebration, it is! #Bazaarturns12
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.
