Hillary Clinton was careful enough to sidestep the pages of Vogue, but not enough to avoid Harper's Bazaar. The senator pulled out of a photo shoot with Vogue in the fall for fear of appearing too feminine, causing that magazine's editor in chief, Anna Wintour, to write an editor's letter voicing her disappointment. But Clinton appears alongside a model wearing a miniskirt and platform heels in a spread called "The Politics of Fashion" in Bazaar's February issue. The spread also includes Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson (who dropped out of the race on Tuesday), Barack Obama, John Edwards, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg.
So how did Bazaar get all those fast-traveling presidential candidates to stand around and pose with models? Easy: the camera lies. Photographer Peter Lindbergh shot model Nadja Auermann near life-size cutouts of the candidates.
