Harper’s Bazaar has chosen its ‘Icons‘ for 2015 and we will warn you now to try not and spit out your cup of coffee after seeing some of the names/faces that somehow managed to finagle their way onto these pages.




Media mogul Oprah Winfrey makes an appearance as Glinda the Good Witch and relays that her favorite message about the character is “he message for all of us: You’re born with it, you always have it. It doesn’t matter how many yellow brick roads you go down, it’s always right there in your heart.”






Another entrant is Katy Perry, who channels Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor a la Andy Warhol. As one of the world’s most famous poptrixxx of the moment, she had this to say about her homage: “Liz was so fabulous and decadent and had a style that evolved with the years … and I’m sure I’ll be married just as many times!”




If you thought Mariah Carey would be absent from a list like this, think again! The chanteuse, who is currently raking in the mega-bucks in her Las Vegas review, is appearing in Harper’s Bazaar as French royalty, and she had this to say about her: “I’m pretty much the opposite of Marie Antoinette, but it’s always fun to throw on a costume.”




Dakota Johnson also appears in Harper’s Bazaar as the Goddess of Love and when asked her thoughts on the Greek goddess, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith’s spawn had this to offer: “In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the primary image of feminine divine love. To me, she embodies the power of love and pleasure, and represents the mystery and intricacy of women.”



Harper’s Bazaar icons issue hits stands in August and also includes Jessica Chasten, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Willow Smith, Lucky Blue and Chris Lee.
