    I think that in recent years Harper’s Bazaar have lead the way leaving Vogue far behind and looking a little rather stale. A shame it had to be Edwina McCann to leave as along with Claudia and Christine, they were doing such a great job at HB. I do wonder who will replace Edwina though and if HB can remain a frontrunner now that Vogue has snared her.

    I’m very confused as to why it’s happened though. I mean what did she do wrong?
