Publisher Hearst said on Tuesday that the executive fashion director of Vanity Fair, Samira Nasr, will head the US edition of the title from next month.
“As a proud daughter of a Lebanese father and a Trinidadian mother, Nasr said, my worldview is broad and believes that representation is important.” Said. “It is important for me to start a new chapter in the history of the bazaar that sheds light on all individuals that I believe are the inspiring sounds of our time, because of its nature, my lens is colorful.”
This move marks the return to Hearst for Nasr, who previously served as fashion director at Elle, one of the company’s other titles. Prior to that, he took on the role of director in InStyle fashion magazine and began his career as an assistant to Vogue’s former creative director, Grace Coddington.
“I believe Harper’s Bazaar can offer the best in fashion, a place where the community can come together to celebrate art, music, pop culture, and learn about the important issues we face as women today.” “The struggle for human rights is like our reproductive rights and the obstacles we face when fighting for equality in the workplace.”

Nasr also presented a message of solidarity to protesters and activists who took to the streets in America after the death of George Floyd, owned by the Minneapolis police.
“I see you, thank you and I hope we can join forces to strengthen the message of equality because the cause of black life is important,” he said.
Meanwhile, Radhika Jones, editor-in-chief of Nasr’s current boss, Vanity Fair, expressed his good wishes in his new role.
