Carine Roitfield and Karl Lagerfeld combine creative powers for Harper’s Bazar


Paying homage to the diversity in women and how! Stellar stylist Carine Roitfeld summoned none other than creative-wizard Karl Lagerfeld for her first shoot as global creative director for Harper’s Bazar. In their third outing as a stylist-photographer duo together, the two created a drama-enthused series of photos featuring the latest from the houses of several top labels playing the perfect foil to their model counterparts, who posed against the starkness of a black background. The Chanel creative director yielded his camera yet again and artistically captured the juxtaposition amid the two. The spread opens with the classic Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson in glossy gold. Her Prada pinafore combined with a cardigan does cheeky-chic in its dichotomous look.

The shoot not only aimed to combine women of all shapes and ages but all spheres of life too. The Vicky Christina Barcelona star’s act is followed, in quick succession, by Liya Kedebe, supermodel and founder of the Liya Kedebe Foundation. The advocate for women and children worldwide blossoms as she poses with a baby in a Givenchy blouse, peplum, skirt, and boots.
