Lovely Lucy

I ended my subscription to Bazaar two years ago because I found it a little too conservative for my taste. It seems like every issue has the same photo shoot with conservative, beige, designer suits. I picked up the latest issue at the airport this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised to find this great Olympic-themed spread with Lucy Liu. It's all a bit fantastical and silly, but that's what makes it so great.

Ooh, I haven't dug into my copy just yet but these are a tempting teaser - thanks!

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

fierce!love it!!

Cammila said...

This is delightfully entertaining. I can't tell if it's supposed to be tongue in cheek or not! Every time I think I've got it, I stare at it for another second and I have no idea. Damn you, enigmatic Lucy Liu!

Broderick said...

I'm reluctant to say the word since Christian Siriano ruined it for everyone, but as aizat said... That first shot is so fierce....

KATLIN said...

Oooh haven't seen these before! I don't know if I really like them though. I prefer the last two!

Shen-Shen said...

Lucy Liu is so amazingly gorgeous! What a fun photoshoot, that first dress is amazing!

Lucy Liu is so pretty. Paula

June Shin said...

How fun! I love it!

Love the cracking laughter of Lucy (hope she was making a cracking sound??).. so refreshing. She could be a typical Asian beauty (I think I can be forgiven for saying that as I am Asian.. ) but yet she isn't really. Even the freckles on her face make her very special. Ta for sharing these. Pictures are simply delightful.

The Clothes Horse said...

These are really fun. I'm really liking Lucy Liu even more lately--she's having a style moment!

Liz Blair said...

I just bought this issue yesterday, and I agree that the pictures of Lucy are amazingly beautiful. Did I ever tell you that my son is half Chinese?

hayleeey said...

Love love LOVE the photoshoot!

Clare said...

No one can resist Lucy in a boxing ring. She's great. I love how no matter what role she is playing she always seems so alive! She glows! I've been watching the bbc Robin Hood (hilarious!!!!!) and the picture of lucy with the bow cracks me up. Y'all should tune in, there are leather jump suits and lyrca!!!!

oooh i love her!! what a great shoot!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i saw this earlier and am obsessed with the reddish armani prive dress and her laid-back pony tail!

Oh Lady E said...

I LOVE LUCY!

The archery shot is awesome... that dress is soooo amazing. I love the fencing one, too.

Seriously, she is such a great role model for Asian women.

Secretista said...

You thought BAZAAR was conservative?! I think the exact opposite, haha! I know it's not a big deal, but in the last issue they used the word "fuck." To me that seems like a little less than consevative because I didn't expect to read an article and then blah balh FUCK blah blah... huh?! It through me off guard.

I do love Lucy Liu. She's so perty. My best friend and I were in 5th grade and she never knew who her mother was because she abandoned her as a baby and we would joke and say, "what if Lucy's your momma?"

Fashion Tidbits said...

oh wow! it's so good! i really like it too

yiqin; said...

She makes asian women so damn proud.

Romany said...

Oh yes this was so lovely. Especially the javelin shot.
Much better than that god awful Jessica Biel spread. Lol.

CoutureCarrie said...

I totally loved this spread . . . my favorite shot was the bow and arrow Carolina Herrera hunting chic!!

Amie said...

I LOVE the first picture!

AsianCajuns said...

We're so happy to know there are tons of lucy liu fans out there!

Aizat and Broderick, well said!

Cammila, I was wondering the same thing.

Songy, I think you're right about her laughter.

The Clothes Horse, I think it's helping that she's on Cashmere Mafia!

Liz Blair, that's too cool. We had no idea!

Clare, a bbc robin hood? I haven't even heard of that version.

Secretista, did they really use "fuck" in an issue of American Bazaar? I can't believe it!

Romany, I couldn't agree more. I thought they chose the worst idea for the Jessica Biel spread - she looks so awkward!

Sounds like the archery pic is almost everyone's favorite - mine too!

kokostiletto said...

hahaha! those look so awesome! i miss lucy liu in cashmere mafia!

Savvy Gal said...

Love Lucy Liu. She has such style and edge.

miss a. said...

She looks fantastic! I get so happy when I see Asians in editorials of fashion magazine. Now, if only American Vogue/Elle/Harper's Bazaar will pick up on Daul Kim's star quality...

Tina :) said...

I love Lucy Liu! One time I saw her and her boyfriend at a shabu-shabu restuarant in west L.A.
I really like the theme, it's a bit silly but perfect for an August issue, since the Olympics are starting.

bestie said...

oh, you're right, it's fantastic! the first one's my favorite -- she almost looks like the actual athlete, but wearing a a fancy dress and the most amazing pair of shoes...

Alya said...

the concept is fab!

Nicole Then said...

haha, ya! it's quite nice. And the weight lifting one made me laugh. haha
