Editor Glenda Bailey and Creative Director Stephen Gan transformed Harper's Bazaar from a shopping-centric glossy into an artistically relevant magazine. Now at ICP, "Harper's Bazaar: A Decade of Style" examines over 30 images produced during Bailey's tenure at the magazine, including this striking swimsuit photo by Ralph Gibson.

Harper's Bazaar has never shied away from a controversial shoot. Most recently the magazine stirred up debate over Terry Richardson's shot of a horned Lady Gaga.

Under Bailey and Gan, Bazaar has, to a certain extent, served as a canvas on which well-known fashion photographers could experiment. Here, Patrick Demarchelier's uncharacteristically abstract "Floating Lips."
