You only turn 150 once and Harper’s Bazaar celebrated its anniversary with an epic (and we mean EPIC!) bash at The Rainbow Room last night. The glossy teamed with two other iconic names, Tiffany & Co. and the Empire State Building, on a public art exhibition on the north side of the most famous building in Manhattan. Images from Bazaar’s archives were projected on the Empire State Building for the entire city to view from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. The exhibition was a partnership with Obscura Digital—a creative technology studio—and spanned 42 stories of the building’s facade.
“Bazaar was the first magazine dedicated to fashion and the pictures that have appeared in its pages—by the most important photographers, artists and illustrators of the modern era—tell the story of not just the evolution of fashion but of the larger world that has surrounded it,” longtime EIC Glenda Bailey remarked.
Tipping their hat last night in Manhattan’s most stunning room were current Bazaar covergirl Kendall Jenner with her mom Kris Jenner, Alber Elbaz, Brandon Maxwell, Carlie Cushnie, Michelle Ochs, Carolina Herrera, Christie Brinkley, Christian Siriano, Coco Rocha, Demi Moore, Dennis Basso, Derek Lam, Doutzen Kroes, Iman, Monique Lhullier, Prabal Gurung, Priyanka Chopra, Ralph Lauren, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, Stacey Bendet, Terry Richardson, Tory Burch, Vera Wang, and Zac Posen.
Guests went home with a copy of the commemorative book, Harper’s Bazaar 150 Years: The Greatest Moments. Check out the videos below to see what went down.
