For its June 2016 issue, the Eastern European edition of Bazaar tapped Chanel Iman to channel the Purple One with a series of covers that harken back to his most iconic looks. Shot by Joshua Jordan, Iman poses on a motorcycle à la Prince's "Purple Rain" album cover, in a Victorian-style blouse holding a guitar and dripping in chains, wearing a coat open sans a shirt underneath. Iman's hair is styled in a curly bouffant in each image — a funky look that Prince helped to make famous.
To celebrate the launch of its new scent, the iconic Italian brand united three titans of Italian cinema: director Giuseppe Tornatore, composer Ennio Morricone and actress Sophia Loren
