Nicole Kidman bookends Harper’s Bazaar’s 1st and 10th anniversary issue

Australian Harper’s Bazaar is getting ready to throw a fashionable party for it’s 10th birthday and Nicole Kidman has come to the party again, adorning the cover 10 years after gracing it’s launch issue in 1998. Kidman was photographed channeling screen icon Marilyn Monroe complete with platinum blonde curls, a little slip and a string of pearls around her neck.

The March 2008 issue of Australian Bazaar goes on sale February 4, and is dubbed “the biggest issue ever” (until the next biggest issue) and according to the cover there will be three exclusive covers.

Since it’s launch 10 years ago, Australian Bazaar has climbed over Australian Vogue as the highest selling high fashion glossy in the country. Which according to an article in The Australian newspaper, this is the only country in the world where Bazaar outsells Vogue.

Interesting… speak of which, one does wonder how the cover image was conveniently released to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, after all the EIC of Bazaar and the Deputy Editor of the paper are ‘linked’.

    hmm I always think that minus stylists + make up artists and Nicole will look very very different.

    and that chanel ad she did w Baz: what a waste of $$$

  • Natalie says:

    wow she looks great.
    I just love Nicole.

    Happy Birthday Harper’s Bazaar, your magazine is great, I hope you have another ten.

    She always looks the same. Could you find a more boring, vapid person for the cover, Vogue?

  • Sophia says:

    jaja, you meant Bazaar right?
    yea nicole does always look the same… classy nonetheless though. this lady just exudes and is the epitome of class.

    and i just adore harper’s bazaar. i think it (especially the australian edition) is better than american vogue.

    Considering that the advert for Chanel gave them a 16% growth on Chanel No.5, brought growth to other areas of their business, I doubt that it was a waste of money. They’ve used that advert for almost 5 years now. I am sure that Chanel appreciates the kick the ad gave.

    Yes, jaja, she always looks the same, as for being vapid, considering she has been on over 100 covers, the editors would have to disagree.
