It appeared in the January 13, 2008 New York Times, in an item by Jane L. Levere, which follows.

    The Highest Fashion: A Royal Accessory

    The new year started smashingly for Glenda Bailey [above], editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar: she was one of 235 citizens of Britain and its commonwealth countries named to the Order of the British Empire as part of Queen Elizabeth’s New Year Honours List.

    Ms. Bailey, a native of Derby, in central England, has overseen the Hearst-published Harper’s Bazaar since 2001. She was previously the editor of Marie Claire in the United States, and she started Marie Claire in Britain. She was honored for her service to British journalism and fashion.

    Ms. Bailey, who has lived in New York for 12 years, said last week that she was “thrilled” to receive the O.B.E. “Everyone knows how much I love accessories, so I’m very excited to receive a medal from the queen,” she said.

    She also said she would celebrate with a “very well-dressed party.”

    Her attire at that event? Something British, of course. “I do have my eye on a very fetching Chanel Union Jack handbag,” she said.
