NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 15, 2017) - Harper's BAZAAR today announced the launch of its seventh annual Fabulous at Every Age reader search (FAEA), presented once again in partnership with Estée Lauder and Saks Fifth Avenue. Together, they are sweeping the nation, searching for women ages 20 to 60+, who personify all things fabulous including style, beauty, and a passion for life.
For the third year in a row, women can enter the contest by posting a photo of themselves-or the woman they are nominating-on Instagram with the hashtag #FabAtEveryAgeContest, including their age and why they're fabulous in the caption, or by visiting FabAtEveryAge.com, a mobile-optimized website.
Harper's BAZAAR editors will select five finalists, each representing a decade between 20 and 60+, who will receive a $5,000 cash prize and be honored at a VIP awards celebration hosted by Editor-In-Chief Glenda Bailey in New York City at Le Bernardin Privé, where one grand-prize winner is announced and gifted an additional $5,000. Finalists will also take home two complete looks provided by A.L.C. from Saks Fifth Avenue, receive must-have products from Estée Lauder, and have their photographs appear in an upcoming 150th Anniversary collectors issue of Harper's BAZAAR, America's first fashion magazine.
"The Fabulous at Every Age contest with Estée Lauder and Saks Fifth Avenue is always a highlight of the year, and particularly exciting during BAZAAR's 150th anniversary celebration," said Alexandra Parnass, Beauty Director of Harper's BAZAAR.
