Conventional wisdom would have it that the clothes are only as good as hair and makeup that finishes them. Exceptions surely exist especially for the so-called #wokeuplikethis set, but still there is something, nay, a whole lot to be said for beauty. The May 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK does not miss a beat in this regard and celebrates some of this season’s best collections with an emphasis on beauty in a story by Carine Roitfeld that features amongst others Anna Cleveland. Titled “Beauty Queens,” this Brigitte Niedermair-photographed story trains the lens on the point where beauty meets fashion. To that end, Anna pairs Prada with Prada (pictured), this case a shirt, skirt, belt, and gloves with the fragrance Candy. There is much to love — fashion and beauty on the same page and with Anna Cleveland as its unifier. Yum.
