Rachel Louise Brown

At 2022 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awardsguests were invited into our heavenly portrait studio – a creative space exploring the celestial and the surreal, perfect for a night among the stars.

Held at Claridge’s, in partnership with Armani Beauty, the evening celebrated inspiring women and extraordinary achievements in the worlds of film, television, music, literature, art and culture. The evening’s guests – from acting talent Viola Davis, Anya Taylor-Joy and Lashana Lynch – to music star Little Simz and ballet dancer Francesca Hayward – were all captured by the photographer Rachel Louise Brown.

“What’s so special about Women of the Year is how intimate it is,” says Brown. “Stars really can be themselves. It was so wonderful to watch them immerse themselves in the moment.”
