Groupe Marie Claire To Launch a French Edition of Harper’s Bazaar

Harper's Bazaar Feb. 2011 Cover (

Daily Front Row reports that Groupe Marie Claire is rumored to be publishing a French edition of Harper’s Bazaar in the near future, which may be officially announced soon.

Over the holidays, it was rumored that Hearst Corporation is buying Elle from its current parent company, Lagardere, for around $500 million.  Although Hearst owns Harper’s Bazaar, it could be that Hearst is either giving or selling the rights to Groupe Marie Claire, a company that Lagardere has a 42% stake in, as a part of the Elle deal.

The date that the new French edition of Bazaar will be released is unknown at this time.
