STYLE BAZAAR: After 140 years of reporting on fashion, Harper's Bazaar believes it's time to publish some sort of manual — at least according to its rules. "Great Style" includes advice taken from the columns and features of the Hearst fashion title, from dressing your age to shopping like an expert, coupled with red-carpet photographs of celebrities and commentary by Carolina Herrera, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Donatella Versace, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Narciso Rodriguez, among others. Jenny Levin, former senior fashion news editor at Bazaar, wrote the book before leaving the magazine in June — she has since relocated to Hong Kong with her family, but continues to contribute to the title. Hearst Books, a division of Sterling Publishing Co., will publish the book Nov. 15. And while the idea of a style guide is far from unique (Details also is coming out with one this fall, obviously for men), the book is just one of several initiatives as Bazaar marks its anniversary with its November issue. Polybagged with the issue will be a second edition of "A Fashionable Life," a home and entertaining spin-off. — S.D.S.
