The newest generation of musical legacy has arrived in style. Stars like Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and more are featured in Harper’s Bazaar‘s fall fashion issue alongside their adorable children, sharing with the magazine some of the wisdom they’ve learned as parents over the years for “ICONS: The First Families of Music.”
“I hope my children never lose their confidence to society,” says West, 41, of 6-month-old daughter Chicago and her two older siblings who joined their dad for the shoot: Saint, 2½, and North, 5.
Posing with her photogenic cuties Summer Rain, 4 next month, and 10-year-old Max Liron, Aguilera, 37, shares, “I love being mama bear and providing support, strength and a safe haven to my babies and loved ones, knowing that, above all else, it’s the most important job I have.”
Like any supportive parent, Lionel Richie wants his kids including daughter Nicole, who stars with her dad in the magazine “to discover who they are and explore their passions to the fullest.”
“My dad and I will do anything for a laugh,” says Nicole, 36. “If that means we’re the butt of the joke, so be it. In a nutshell, we’re desperate show ponies.”
Harper’s BAZAAR editors from around the world will come together on Friday, Sept. 7, to celebrate the fifth annual ICONS event at the legendary Plaza Hotel.
