'The Simpsons' invade fashion magazine

NEW YORK, July 17 (UPI) -- Harper's Bazaar has recruited the cartoon family "The Simpsons" to model in an animated Paris fashion portfolio appearing in the New York-based magazine.

The spread, timed to coincide with marketing for "The Simpsons Movie," which opens July 27, features patriarch Homer Simpson mirroring Karl Lagerfeld with sunglasses and half gloves, baby Maggie inside a Hermes bag and other members of the animated family with fashion products, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

"We've received requests for the original art to be framed," Harper's special projects editor, Laura Brown, said of the designers' reaction to having their products modeled by the Simpsons.

"It's such a pop-cultural compliment to be 'Simpson-ized.' Through 15 years, for every actor who has appeared on the show, it's the biggest honor, so these designers who haven't been on 'The Simpsons' playing field were just absolutely thrilled," she said.
