The US edition of Harper's Bazaar has undergone quite the makeover. To celebrate it's pared-down and polished new look, super-celeb Gwyneth Paltrow is showing off her own new look (and a whole lot of leg) on the March cover.

The subscriber cover (i.e. the one you'll get through the letterbox if you subscribe and not the one going on general release at newsstands) features Ms Paltrow, long blonde hair covering her face, wearing a revealing black Anthony Vaccarello dress.
In an interview with WWD, Harper's editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey unveiled the cover as well as giving a more detailed breakdown of the new magazine structure - you can read the full piece over on WWD but the main points are that the magazine has a new luxe feel thanks to thicker paper, there's a lot more white space to give features room to breathe and there's been an increase in ad pages.
And for those of you with an interest in typography, Bailey describes the text as: "Didot Caps, Didot Italics and also an introduction of Gotham."
We've also been having a read through Gwyneth's interview (which you can find over on the US Harper's website) and our favourite bit is when she's talking about her daughter Apple's approach to fashion:
"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink."
We probably weren't that into avant garde when we were seven years old either ;)
