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.

Bazaar was among the first of the big fashion glossies to recruit A-list celebrities for their fashion spreads. Here, a glamorous shot of Julianne Moore by Peter Lindbergh.

Likewise, Bailey has even embraced hip hop fashion and culture in recent years, inviting Pharrell Williams to interview one of his idols, Jeff Koons. Here, a shot of the musician by William Klein.

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."

Another unusual Demarchelier image depicts Stephanie Seymour rendered in Warholian bubble-gum hues. To see more, visit the Interational Center of Photography at 1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street.
