On Thursday, Harper's Bazaar unveiled their 2015 ICONS series, featuring nine modern icons transformed into their iconic inspirations.
Photographed by legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude, the series stars Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Oprah Winfrey, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Willow Smith, Dakota Johnson, Jessica Chastain, Chris Lee, and for the first time, a male icon: model, musician and actor Lucky Blue.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the features stars and their iconic inspirations.
Oprah Winfrey as Glinda the Good Witch
"The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite spiritual tales, and Glinda is a spiritual goddess," Winfrey said. "I love when she says to Dorothy, 'You've always had the power.' That is the message for all of us: You're born with it, you always have it. It doesn’t matter how many yellow brick roads you go down, it’s always right there in your heart."

"An icon transcends time," Perry said of the actress. "Liz was so fabulous and decadent and had a style that evolved with the years ...and I’m sure I’ll be married just as many times!"
Mariah Carey as Marie Antoinette
"I’m pretty much the opposite of Marie Antoinette, but it’s always fun to throw on a costume," the singer said of the French aristocrat.
Dakota Johnson as Aphrodite
"In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the primary image of feminine divine love," the Fifty Shades of Grey star told the magazine. "To me, she embodies the power of love and pleasure, and represents the mystery and intricacy of women."
