Harper’s Bazaar: Greatest Hits is a time capsule of America’s longest-running fashion magazine and one of today’s most influential industry authorities under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey. The magazine’s evolution is illustrated by over 300 iconic images of the past decades defining moments in celebrity pop culture, politics, and world affairs through the eyes of fashion. “The importance of our fashion magazine is to create something that no one has ever seen before. It’s got to be original, innovative, and exciting. I am also a great believer on a sense of fun,” says Bailey on connecting through the reader’s experience. Greatest Hits takes that connection one step further, bearing all—from the controversial to the acclaimed, with this beautifully entertaining collection.

Although I do watch my fair share of Project Runway, I am not a fashion savant, nor do I pretend to know much about it. How exactly did I find myself at the Alexander McQueen exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, you ask? Well, after all of the rave reviews it got, it's hard not to be curious. On Friday morning I went to check out the scene...and was utterly shocked. Wrapped around blocks and blocks was the line just waiting to get inside the museum. Once inside, there were even more lines to enter the exhibit. I knew that the exhibit would be crowded, but I did not expect the mob scene that awaited me upon my arrival. The wait turned out to be well worth it.
