GLENDA BAI­LEY

Ed­i­tor, US Bazaar, 2001-present

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Women -

Bai­ley was born and raised in Der­byshire, and be­gan her stel­lar ca­reer as the launch ed­i­tor of Bri­tish Marie Claire, then took over its Amer­i­can sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion, be­fore be­ing lured to US Bazaar. Icon­o­clas­tic, dar­ing and imag­i­na­tive, she has over­seen Rihanna be­ing pho­tographed swim­ming with sharks, Donna Karan sprayed top-to-toe in gold paint and Dolce & Gab­bana pos­ing as Bat­man and Robin; while the lim­ited-edi­tion cov­ers Cindy Sher­man de­signed at Bai­ley’s re­quest have be­come ma­jor col­lec­tors’ items. One of her en­dur­ing in­no­va­tions was the subscribers’ cover – a spe­cially shot artis­tic image to re­ward loyal read­ers with a mag­a­zine that dif­fered from those avail­able on the news­stand – a prac­tice now widely adopted through­out the in­dus­try. She was honoured with an OBE in 2008.
