WOW!!! This is definitely a beautiful celebration of diversity of women, be it in the world of fashion or any other field, without any prejudice against colour, body size, ethnicity, age or background.
Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Fashion Director Carine Roitfeld, the Harper’s Bazaar September 2013 editorial story titled, “Singular Beauties” features successful women from all walks of life, paying an homage to the diversity of women. Featuring actress Scarlett Johansson on the cover in a Dolce and Gabbana byzantine inspired Fall 2013 piece, the editorial also features: Liya Kebede, Linn Arvidsson, Dakota Fanning, Lily Collins, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Ondria Hardin, China Machado, Soo Joo Park, Candice Huffine, Ashleigh Good, Xiao Wen, Erika Ervin, Grimes, Zoe Kravitz, Karen Elson, Lily Donaldson, Liberty Ross, Kenya Kinski, Gabourey Sidibe, Chiharu Okunugi, Tilda Lindstam, Lisa Verberght, Angel Haze & Chrishell Stubbs.
Since the story also features a plus size model Candice Huffine (38-33-43), it is all the more revolutionary and encouraging seeing Karl Lagerfeld donning the hat of a photographer here as he has been quite vocal in saying that curvy women should stay of the catwalk. Is this a new beginning for Monsieur Lagerfeld? For sure, this editorial goes to Stylefluid Trendz's archive as one of my personal favorites.
