This Wednesday, Harper’s Bazaar will celebrate the magazine’s 150th anniversary by projecting 150 cover images on the Empire State Building’s north facade.

Works from Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon will be included, featuring women from Lauren Bacall to Kate Moss to Reese Witherspoon.

The projections will be 500 feet tall and 186 feet wide, covering 42 floors of the building. They are scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. EST and will stop at midnight.

Glenda Bailey, the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, has said it will be “the greatest light show that has ever been.”
