To: Tips@Fashionista.com From: NaughtyMagIntern@TellAll.com Despite the recent Rachel Zoe/Anna Wintour fashion feud, Harper's Bazaar has had no qualms in taking in the stray fashionista. I guess editor-in-chief, Glenda Bailey, wants to cause a little ruckus in the fashion world. I overheard Ms. Bailey and another editor discussing a shoot styled by, da duh da duh, Ms. Zoe herself. Will her first editorial styling gig put her up top with the likes of Brana Wolf or confirm that she should stick to dressing Hollywood starlets? My guess is...the latter. The issue should be out this fall. xo Something about this e-mail really makes us wish Gossip Girl was still on...

Is Glenda Bailey Leaving Harper's Bazaar?
There was a gossipy little item in this morning's WWD suggesting Glenda Bailey is about to resign from Harper's Bazaar. "Perhaps Harper’s Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey is on the way out?" writes reporter Zeke Turner. "She has a new counterpart on the business side, hard-charging Carol Smith, who can’t be happy with the magazine’s current numbers and will want to turn the magazine around right off the bat." We've heard similar rumors, but dismissed them as pure gossip. Turner does go on to cite an unnamed Bazaar source who reiterates that notion: "Glenda rumors come all the time, it’s just like the boy who cries wolf,” the source told WWD. “For the past two years, there have been Glenda rumors.” We reached out to a Bazaar spokesperson for comment, and she said, "We don't speculate on rumor, especially when it’s from unnamed sources.”
Carine Roitfeld on Her New Job at Harper’s Bazaar, the Internet, and 'Pussy'
Last night, Hearst held an intimate Q&A session with its newest staff member: Carine Roitfeld, they glossy's new Global Fashion Director. Harper’s Bazaar US editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey intro’ed Roitfeld, while Town and Country’s Jay Fielden asked the questions. In a tight-fitting grey dress, sky-high Alaïa boots, and a Miu Miu mink stole, Roitfeld indulged Fielden’s questions--deftly addressing everything from Vogue rivalries, aging gracefully, “the Internet” (Roitfeld’s newest obsession), and that now iconic Gucci campaign she styled with the label’s logo shaved into a model’s pubic hair. Yes, Carine Roitfeld purred the word “pussy” several times last night.
Harper's Bazaar Fetes the Winners of its "Fabulous at Every Age" Contest (and Glenda Bailey Tells Us Which Editor She Thinks Is Hot)
Last night Harper’s Bazaar and Estée Lauder held a lovely cocktail reception at Hearst Tower to celebrate the winners of its second annual “Fabulous at Every Age” reader contest. It was a girl-power love fest, leaving a good chunk of the room weepy by the end of the presentation. I snuck in a quick chat with Harper Bazaar’s EIC, Glenda Bailey (in Erdem), before the presentation started. She talked about what a huge franchise “Fabulous at Every Age” is for the mag, saying, “When I’m walking along and someone wants to get my attention, they don’t go ‘Harper’s Bazaar!’ or ‘Glenda!’ They say, ‘Fabulous at every age!’” When I mentioned that I recently had a birthday and had to jump to the next age category she said, “As somebody who is not in the 70-year-old category (she’s 52), I find myself lusting after the 70-year-old picks--so I have something to look forward to in my 60s and 70s! The spirit of it is, you immediately look to where you are, but then you look a little bit before and a little bit after.”
