La donna è mobile

Glenda BaileyHarper's Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey is committed to the latest trends in both fashion and film.  Not only did she include a Simpsons-style layout in the August issue, but she even went yellow herself -- albeit while wearing a stylish Lanvin blouse. 

When it comes to the question of knockoffs, it turns out that Glenda's position is equally cutting-edge.  Sure, according to Brandweek she created Marie Claire's notorious "Splurge vs. Steal" feature when she was EIC of the British edition and then imported it to the U.S. when she took over the American version.  Since taking the helm of Harper's Bazaar, however, she's joined the fight against both trademark counterfeiters and design pirates

Proof positive that it's a woman's privilege to change her mind -- and sometimes, that's a good thing.

P.S.  Haven't seen The Simpsons Movie yet?  You may be amused by Bart's chalkboard-writing punishment.
