Carmel Snow (27 August 1887 - 1961) was the influential editor of the American edition of Harper's Bazaar from 1934 to 1958.
Snow went to work as a fashion editor at American Vogue in 1921 and  joined  Harper's Bazaar 11 years later
1921 Snow 进入美国 Vogue 做为时尚编辑并且11年后加入时尚巴莎
She famously described her goal at the latter publication as creating a magazine for "well-dressed women with well-dressed minds."
 Her influence at both magazines went far beyond fashion reportage: she brought cutting-edge art, fiction, photography, and reporting into the American home
她对两本杂志的影响力远远超出了时尚文学: 她带给美国家庭新锐艺术, 小说, 摄影, 和报道

As to why her reputation faded, while Vreeland went on to become a legend, photographer Richard Avedon said: "She was older, right? And she died before stardom was the thing." He added, however, "Carmel Snow taught me everything I know."至于为什么她的销声匿迹, 而 Vreeland 成为传奇人物, 摄影师 Richard Avedon 说:"她更老, 对吧?她在世的年代还没有明星名流这一说." 他还补充道:"Carmel Snow教会了我所有我知道的"
Many others, and particularly photographers, also credited her with helping them to hone their craft. Henri Cartier-Bresson described Snow as "magic."And when the great Hungarian photographer known as Brassai heard of Snow's retirement, he was said to have abandoned photography for good还有其他人, 特别是摄影师, 都受益于她的帮助给他们磨练的机会. Henri Cartier-Bresson 形容她是"魔法师."当匈牙利摄影师 Brassai 在得知 Snow 退休的消息后, 甚至干脆终止了自己的摄影生涯
