Harper’s BAZZAR Fabulous At Every Age

Fabulous At Every Age

‘Fabulous At Every Age’ campaign from Harper’s BAZAAR and Estée Lauder highlights the power and beauty of women at every age,

The magazine’s beauty director Alexandra Parnass explains that,

“They’re humans, you know? None of them are absolutely perfect head-to-toe, as none of us are. It really strikes you when talking to any of these women that they are truly not bothered by the little things in life.”

The contest honored five BAZAAR readers, spanning five decades, who embody the theme of female empowerment at any age.

I guess what they say is true, age really ain’t nothing but a number.

‘Normal Barbie’

What would Barbie look like if she were modeled after the average American woman?

Enter ‘Normal Barbie’ by artist Nickolay Lamm who used the CDC measurements of an average 19 year old to create a 3-D model, which he photographed next to a standard Barbie doll.

The artist says:

“If we criticize skinny models, we should at least be open to the possibility that Barbie may negatively influence young girls as well,”…”If there’s even a small chance of Barbie in its present form negatively influencing girls, and if Barbie looks good as an average-sized woman in America, what’s stopping Mattel from making one?”
