The newest generation of musical legacy has arrived in style.
Stars like Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and more are featured in Harper’s Bazaar‘s fall fashion issue alongside their adorable children, sharing with the magazine some of the wisdom they’ve learned as parents over the years for “ICONS: The First Families of Music.”
Posing with her photogenic cuties Summer Rain, 4 next month, and 10-year-old Max Liron, Aguilera, 37, shares, “I love being mama bear and providing support, strength and a safe haven to my babies and loved ones, knowing that, above all else, it’s the most important job I have.”

Carey and her 7-year-old twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe were all smiles as they had their photos taken alongside an adorable pup.
“Family is the most important thing to me,” says the singer, who shares her kids with ex-husband Nick Cannon. “My children have provided me with such joy as they’ve developed their own unique personalities.”
She explains, “Moroccan has a knack for technology, and Monroe is really musical. They’re each other’s best friends, and I love watching them grow up.”
“My dad and I will do anything for a laugh,” says Nicole, 36. “If that means we’re the butt of the joke, so be it. In a nutshell, we’re desperate show ponies.”
“Family is everything to me,” admits Jessica, 26. “Whenever I have time off, the first thing I do is go home to see everyone. It’s what makes me the happiest.”
Although they may have different career trajectories, the duo do share one big thing in common: their natural introversion, which actually backfired on Jessica once.
“One time when I was watching my dad’s show with some friends by the side of the stage, he blindsided me and pulled me up onstage to dance with him during ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ ” she recalls. “I’m still traumatized.”
Harper’s Bazaar‘s ICONS photo spread also includes appearances from Keith Richards‘ daughters Theodora and Alexandra, Steven Tyler and daughter Liv, the late Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris and more.
Harper’s BAZAAR editors from around the world will come together on Friday, Sept. 7, to celebrate the fifth annual ICONS event at the legendary Plaza Hotel. Partners for the event include Infor, returning for the fifth year, Stella Artois, returning for the third year, Fujifilm returning for the second year and new partners Estée Lauder, Saks Fifth Avenue and Genesis.
