Carol Burnett has been at it in the entertainment industry since 1955. Jump ahead almost seven decades and Burnett is now 90 and looks positively resplendent on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar March digital issue.

Burnett cemented her place in television history with The Carol Burnett Show, airing on CBS, which was one of the very first programs to be hosted by a woman. She has seven Primetime Emmy Awards, seven Golden Globe Awards, a Tony Award, and a Grammy Award to her name. Check out how Harper’s Bazaar is celebrating the television titan.

Carol Burnett looks sophisticated on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar March 2024 digital issue

Appearing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar for this month’s digital edition, Burnett was draped in a flowing black jacket atop a matching dress shirt. Deep red shoes stood out against her formal black pants. Her jewelry was subtle yet elegant, with quiet gold strips shining at her wrist, around her fingers, and from her ears.

The gown was Willy Chavarria, while the shirt was by Dolce & Gabbana. Giorgio made the pants and Vhernier provided the earrings. Her slippers were by Vivier. All of this was styled for Burnett by Deborah Afshani and photographed by Yelena Yemchuk.

Tying together the classical elegance was the decadent bathtub and floral wallpaper making up the backdrop.

Burnett is known for a broad array of projects on the small screen, the big screen, and even the stage. But the variety show will always hold a special place in her heart above all else. It was the vehicle of storytelling and joke-sharing she felt most liberated in.

My humor is more physical than intellectual,” mused Burnett in a 1968 interview with The Grand Island Independent. I would love to be able to do more satire, but I’m a throwback, a nut, that’s it. I should have lived when there was vaudeville because that’s what I feel most comfortable doing.” But she appreciates the flexibility of variety shows, and explained that “the hours are so much more sane than being in a nightclub or on Broadway or in films so that I can spend more time taking care of my two little girls.”

Throughout it all, she’s never felt she made a mistake choosing the path she did. “I think it was the fact that I went to the movies so much that. I always had a Mickey and Judy idea of ‘Everything’s going to work out,'” Burnett shared recently. Right she was.
