LIZ TIL­BERIS

Ed­i­tor, US Bazaar, 1992-1999

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Women -

Til­beris had a sim­ple yet am­bi­tious aim: to make Bazaar

‘the most beau­ti­ful mag­a­zine in the world’. Dur­ing her seven years at the helm, the Bri­tish-born jour­nal­ist with the sig­na­ture sil­ver coif­fure re­cruited a ros­ter of ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent to help her ful­fil this vi­sion, from Mario Testino and Peter Lind­bergh to Kate Moss and Princess Diana. Til­beris’ achieve­ment was all the more impressive as, through­out her ten­ure, she was suf­fer­ing from ovar­ian can­cer; yet she never per­mit­ted her ill­ness to af­fect her op­ti­mism and drive. Days be­fore her death, Patrick De­marche­lier re­called dis­cussing page lay­outs with her; ‘and she was laugh­ing’.
