The Harper's Bazaar Icons party might be one of the biggest, poshest, and most iconic bashes in all the elite, entertainment-industry land. And last Friday, September 7, the publication's worldwide cast of editors gathered at this year's installment alongside models and music-industry royalty, held in honor of the magazine's fifth Icons portfolio created by Carine Roitfeld, the global fashion director of Harper's Bazaar.
Deliciously black tie (the event's signature black carpet pretty much oozed diamonds), the prestigious gathering celebrated the star-studded September issue of all 32 worldwide editions of the magazine and The First Families of Music. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the editorial spread features the music industry's finest and their kin. Think a sparkling wingspan including everyone from Kanye West and daughter North to Bruce Springsteen and daughter Jessica. Additionally, some of our favorite top models were in attendance, including the gorgeous Grace Elizabeth who provided us with an exclusive play-by-play of the event—from her glamorous makeup look courtesy of Estée Lauder to walking that aforementioned ink-hued red carpet.
