Harper’s Bazaar, one of the biggest fashion Bibles in the world, announced that it has tapped Samira Nasr to lead its publication, making her the first Black editor in chief in the publication’s 153-year-history.

“Fashion and BAZAAR are synonymous,” Nasr said in a Bazaar.com article announcing her hire.

“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.”

Nasr has a rich history in fashion, working as the fashion director at ELLE and the style director for InStyle. And, she currently serves as the executive fashion director at Vanity Fair, where she managed and directed iconic covers such as the 25th annual Hollywood issue and the spring style issue featuring Lupita Nyong’o.

 

Looking at her past work, we can’t wait to see what magic she will conjure next.

 

BAZAAR has always presented the world of fashion through a unique lens—smart, vibrant, adoring. Those words could not better describe Samira, who understands and delights in the world of fashion, but has a thoroughly modern and distinctive take,” said Hearst Magazines Chief Content Officer Kate Lewis.

“She innately understands the BAZAAR woman, because she is the BAZAAR woman: passionate about fashion, culture, and the issues that matter today. I know she will make something magical here.”

Nasr, who is of Trinidadian and Lebanese descent, lives in Brooklyn with her son. Her first day at work starts on July 6. We cannot wait to check out her first cover!

Congrats Samira!
