Vogue would seem like the shoo-in for the big cover "gets," as editor Anna Wintour proved when she published Michelle Obama's first big cover before all her competitors (which followed with many lovely MObama covers and stories of their own). But "Page Six" notes that Harper's Bazaar might be in a better position to land the necessary and highly coveted Kate Middleton cover first since fashion-features editor Sara Buys is married to Camilla Parker Bowles's son Tom. Bailey won't reveal anything about where the battle stands. "I'm very fortunate to be editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar and, as a result, have lots of people who want to be on the cover," she told the paper at a party the other night. "We're very, very fortunate to have some of the great Kates appear on our cover — Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett. Who knows the future?"
