Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. But finding diversity in fashion mags isn’t exactly common. So when we saw Harper’s Bazaar’s May “Beauty” issue, we were pleasantly surprised to see an array of gorgeous models — none of whom look alike at all.

Shot by photographer Johnny Dufort, the spread features models Riley Montana, Ashley Graham and Chiharu Okunugi — just to name a few. As The Huffington Post notes, Carine Roitfeld, the magazine’s global fashion director and former editor-in-chief of Vogue  Paris, was the mastermind behind the editorial. Not only did Roitfeld add variety in terms of models, she also wasn’t afraid to use different combinations of cosmetics to bring her vision to life. Throughout the photos you’ll see jaw-dropping beauty looks like gold lipstick, smokey blue eye shadow and colorful contouring.


And of course, there are the clothes, which are just icing on the cake. With brands like Prada, Levi and Celine, this editorial is pretty perfect. Scroll through the photos to see the what we’re talking about, and don’t forget to head over to Harper’s Bazaar for more information.
