On Tuesday, Hearst Magazines announced that Samira Nasr has been appointed editor-in-chief of the U.S. edition of Harper’s Bazaar, overseeing content strategy and development across the brand’s print and digital platforms.
This is the first time in its history that the women’s fashion magazine, founded in 1867, has had a person of color at the helm.
“Fashion and Bazaar are synonymous,” Nasr said in a statement sent to TODAY Style. “It is a tremendous privilege to be entrusted with moving this legacy brand into a new era — one that is colorful, inclusive and celebrates the beauty of fashion on every platform — while carrying on the tradition of innovative art direction and great style that the Bazaar audience loves so much. The most beautiful part of working in magazines is the teamwork and creating a community. I can’t wait to get started.”
