Pop star Katy Perry was
shot for the magazine’s December issue, and one image features her lips adorned
with 150 different ruby-red Swarovski crystal elements, shot by photographer
Alexi Lubomirski. Hearst confirmed to JCK that only Harper’s Bazaar subscribers
and readers who download the issue on Zinio.com can view the cover; newsstand
issues feature a different, un-crystallized shot of Perry.
“When you log onto
Zinio.com, you’ll see the digital issue with interactive features, video of the
shoot, and sparkly effects,” said a publicist.
Readers also have a chance to win Atelier Swarovski jewelry by looking for
video instructions in the December Zinio.com edition and finding the Swarovski
Elements interactive advertising spread.
