Harper's Bazaar unveils limited edition Swarovski crystals on cover

Cover star Katy Perry's lips will be adorned with red Swarovski elements

Harper's Bazaar has teamed up with Swarovski to produce a special limited edition of the magazine which features singer Katy Perry's lips covered in 150 ruby-coloured Swarovski elements.

Only a select group of fashion insiders and VIPs will receive a copy actually encrusted with the sparklers.

The cover of the regular edition featured a wider shot of the 26-year-old singer with her wearing normal lip gloss.

However, readers can download the enhanced digital issue from Zinio for $3.99. The digital edition boasts motion graphics that appear to sparkle. It also contains a behind-the-scene video of the cover shoot, done by star photographer Alexi Lubormirski.

Swarovski has incorporated an interactive advertising spread in the digital edition where readers can win sparking pieces from the Atelier Swarovski collection.
In addition, the Harper's Bazaar style suite at the Shoreham, New York, will also display Swarovski pieces.
