Who is the REAL target audience for Harper's Bazaar?[edit]

I mean according to the article the magazine is targeted towards women and women's fashion yet they very frequently have nude photographs of celebrity women on the cover such as a six month pregnant Britney Spears in the upcoming August 2006 issue, Now I have to tell you if I were a woman I don't think I'd be comfortable buying a magazine that featured a nude woman on the cover unless of course I was a lesbian. Now why doesn't the magazine admit yes it is targeting women but it is also targeting men by putting very young and hot celebrities in the nude, To call Harper's Bazaar only a woman's magazine is an outright lie. 68.160.123.246 05:34, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Rrrright...show me a women's magazine that doesn't have a woman on the cover. Vast conspiracy? Our maybe you're wrong. Silarius 17:32, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Magazine history[edit]

I have one question: is there any historical relationship between the fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar and literary/social magazine Harper's Monthly? Sewing 18:22, 26 Sep 2003 (UTC)

It seems that they are both published by Harpers & Brothers according to this site [1] Saul Taylor 04:09, 22 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Technological singularity says: "In a Harper's Bazaar article from 1854, the world of tomorrow saw people being shot short distances in oversized cannonballs (pre-plane) while traversing the country in underground trains (pre-car). Today is a singularlity to anyone living in 1854."

Yet this article claims the magazine started in 1867, which is correct? Edward 18:39, 2005 May 24 (UTC)

That's Harper's Monthly, not Harper's Bazaar. Churchh 07:49, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Yes, obvious, but do they have a connectio? Is Harper and Harper the same person? If yes, Have he a biography on wikipedia? Håbet 11:57, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Page merge[edit]

Harper's Bazaar is just a rebranding of Harpers & Queen, both pages are small, I think a page merge would probably be the best option. Any objections? Driller thriller 01:02, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

I had a spare few minutes so I threw together a merged article in case the consensus is to go ahead:
Yes to the merge Myrockstar 10:17, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
I dissagree with the potential change. Two Magazines, two names, two pages... --Johnny-Who?--
The point is there aren't two magazines... Driller thriller 15:18, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
ohh understood now, vote swiched for the merger. I think it should be moved to the Bazzar page with a redirect on the older Harpers & Queen page. --Johnny-Who? 21:04, 3 August 2006 (UTC)--
Cool, well I went ahead with the merge. Hope no-one objects... Driller thriller 10:40, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Magazine cover?[edit]

How about an image of what the magazine looks like?? --72.202.150.92 (talk) 05:27, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Well I gave Harper's Bazaar a "face lift" if you will. So I added some new History and Pictures. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jdhash16 (talkcontribs) 00:03, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Why Don't You.....?[edit]

Why don't you (or anybody) add "The Liz Tilberis Years"? I wish I could get ahold of it, but Vince Aletti did a really good article for the Village Voice when Liz Tilberis remodelled Harpers Bazaar in the early 90s. I prefer her minimalist approach to the current style that Harpers Bazaar is using. I think it hurt HB when Liz Tilberis died.24.167.105.97 (talk) 02:43, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
