karin upton baker

Wonder woman - Karin Upton Baker.

The style queen with Australian media personality Deborah Hutton.

Because she turned Harper's Bazaar into a must-read magazine during her tenure as editor-in-chief.
Because the magazine won seven Magazine Publishers Association awards within the first 18 months of her being in the job.
Because she was invited to step as editor-in-chief at US
Harper's Bazaar after the death of incumbent Liz Tilberis.
Because she was then offered the position of managing director at
Hermes Australia - who wouldn't want that job!!!
Because she gets better with age.
Because she exudes style and grace but is not afraid of the big jobs in town.

I work near Hermes and have seen her a few times,always looking chic and immaculate and of course with a Birkin.
Loved Harpers Bazaar magazine while she was the editor.

Hi Anastasiac, Now you're teasing me - you have to email me those pics of her wedding. I'm sure it was divine.

Hi Missk

Are the Hermes offices in the Hermes shop building? I LOVE their window displays. Sometimes I go for a quick walk around the block at lunchtime to give my eyes a break from the computer and usually I walk past Hermes just to see the windows.

Her wedding pictures are absolutely gorgeous. My mother was there, ( she is Karin's Cousin ) And they are absolutely stunning. there is one where she is walking along with her sisters Caroline and Jackie and it is breath taking. She is so beautiful.
