Mariah Carey and Katy Perry for Harper's Bazaar icon series

Mariah Carey and Katy Perry are among the stars featured in Harper's Bazaar's 2015 icon series.

The 54-year-old star and the 'Dark Horse' hitmaker are two of nine modern icons who have been transformed into their iconic inspirations and photographed by legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude for the fashion magazine.

Mariah - who is pictured on a swing in an old fashioned pink dress with flowers in her hair - said: "I'm pretty much the opposite of Marie Antoinette, but it's always fun to throw on a costume."

Katy, 30, poked fun at herself as she spoke of her enjoyment at dressing up as the late actress Elizabeth Taylor - who married eight times to seven different men.

She told the magazine: "An icon transcends time. Liz was so fabulous and decadent and had a style that evolved with the years... and I'm sure I'll be married just at many times!"

Other stars included in the shoot are Burberry model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Willow Smith, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actress Dakota Johnson, Jessica Chastain, chat show host Oprah Winfrey, Chris Lee and, for the first time, a male icon, musician and actor Lucky Blue.

Speaking about her icon, the late former Vogue editor-in-chief and Harper's Bazaar fashion editor Diana Vreeland, Rosie said: "Diana was such an influential, powerful woman who changed fashion from the inside out."

The September issue of Harper's Bazaar hits newsstands on August 18.
