Harper’s Bazaar: First in Fashion—Premier Magazine de Mode

Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris Art

Harper’s Bazaar, one of America’s great fashion glossies, is a title with a rich history. The magazine’s first editor, Louise Booth, was a suffragist, and as the publication gained prominence, artists of all disciplines were featured in pages of chic and often cutting-edge design. Its midcentury editor, Carmel Snow, said that hers was a magazine for “well-dressed women with well-dressed minds.” (It was under Snow that Diana Vreeland learned the ropes.) In an exhibition that celebrates the Bazaar’s enduring prominance—and also the reopening of the Musée’s fashion wing—60 iconic ensembles are on display next to the print images that first disseminated them. —E.C.
