Dovima by Richard Avedon, Harper’s Bazaar December 1959
Anne Hathaway by David Slijper, Harper’s Bazaar UK subscriber cover February 2013
Perhaps making a nod to Harper’s Bazaar’s insertion of the letter “A” into the magazine’s name, (Harper’s Bazaar was formerly known as Harper’s Bazar from 1867-1930), Richard Avedon photographed model Dovima, ascedning a ladder carrying the letter A for the magazine’s December 1959 issue. Paying homage to the Avedon cover, photographer David Slijper cast Anne Hathaway to play Dovima, climbing up the steps off a ladder similarly carrying an A to represent the name change in the subscriber cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK’s February 2013 issue.
