Dr. Jill Biden is the first First Lady of Harper’s Bazaar
You know, I always want to understand the back room deal and the general vulgarity that can understand how a magazine captures someone super high-profile for their cover. Conventional wisdom will point it out Enjoy Will always get the First Lady, but according to a new book about the 2020 election, Vice President Harris and his team were dissatisfied with their cover (correctly, in my mind) and I wonder if it played a role in giving Dr. Biden. Harper’s consent.
The profile is very well done – interesting and quite logistic-y. And he wears American labels on all the photos; The more formal cover suite is Ralph Lauren, but he wears a slightly hungry Provenza in the editorial (among other things) that really entertained me. I enjoyed this short description:
The President does not get the pass. In Obama’s time, they used to settle their occasional quarrels over text to avoid fighting in front of the Secret Service. (They called it “faxing.”)
Not too long ago, he tapped her a message. Joe said, “You know it’s going to go down in history. It’ll have a record.” He laughs. “I won’t tell you what I told him then.”
The idea of two of them sitting on the back of their car and tapping their phones in anger is funny to me.
I think it’s customer cover and it cracks me:
(A) I appreciate Dr. Jill’s commitment to his baseball team, although my own team had some issues with Phyllis earlier this season. (I appreciate Phyllis’ commitment to their very classic uniforms.)
(b) It’s so funny to me that looking at this picture it looks like she was running for the cheesecake – which I believe is happening – and then I realized that she looks inadequately cheerful and throws a blazer over her face, e.g., First Lady it’s up . We can still see your jersey, Jill! Lean into it!
(c) I appreciate the red, white and blue market. I mean, it’s a July issue. Talk about risk.
