Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India November-December - 2021, issue: The Fantasy Issue of Bazaar India explores the wonder and power of all that is fantastical, by adding a delicious touch of playfulness and drama across the fashion, art , travel , and culture pages. Our covershoot for the month is set against mysterious landscapes, urging our readers to embark on an inner voyage to explore the unknown.
Digital coverstar for the month—actor Kalki Koechlin—puts her theatrical prowess to play by dressing up as some of the world's most memorable pop-culture icons. Her portrayals of Madonna, Helen, David Bowie, and Rekha are not just brilliantly executed, but also serve as a reminder that a little make-belief can be marvellous.
Also, actor Disha Patani speaks about how her life transformed when she entered, and won, a modelling competition, and inadvertently became an actor in Mumbai.
In the Talking Points Section, comedian Vir Das makes a case for humour, while actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui charts his rise to fame from humble beginnings. Meanwhile, artists Bharti Kher and Jayasri Burman speak up for women's experiences. Elsewhere in the issue, you will discover original, fantastical stories penned by some of the country's most gifted writers, while a special feature explores the power of Bollywood fashion that has helped us reimagine style over the decades.
And in the travel pages, a stylish fashion student takes us on a private tour of Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance while dressed in handloom saris belonging to his grandmother.
In the Beauty Section, India's leading dermatologists share expert advice on how to achieve your best skin ever. And in the Bazaar At Work Section, leading entrepreneurs give personal experiences on how they launched their own companies—and how you can, too.
There is much to discover in this issue, a dedication to larger-than-life stylle, hopes, and dreams.
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.
