Harper's Bazaar highlights 'Voices of Hope'
For the summer issue of Harper's Bazaar, the glossy has chosen to highlight the work of women fighting for change, whether it be racial justice or climate reform. Supermodel Christy Turlington Burns interviews five women — Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix, plus-size supermodel Ashley Graham, U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood, public health expert Dr. Leana Wen and New York State gubernatorial aide Melissa DeRosa — about their visions for a post-Covid-19 world. {Harper's Bazaar}

Business of Fashion's new Senior Europe Correspondent Robert Williams details why luxury brands like Dior and Burberry are insisting on keeping things business-as-usual come September. {Business of Fashion}

Still, as Rachel Strugatz writes, Supa Cent has built a multimillion-dollar business with a dedicated following on her own — who needs Sephora? {Business of Fashion}
