Inspirational

I know it's a little too late but I've just received my mail fedexed from home. You probably have seen images of Vogue Russia's September 2009 issue with Kate Moss but have you read the Editor's Letter? Inspirational words from Aliona as always.

I am convinced that if a woman has found her calling, only then does she understand her true worth. Take supermodel Kate Moss, for instance, who refuses to give interviews. The silent beauty (what need does she have to talk?) earns serious money by just doing what she does best. And no matter what tests and humiliations she must endure, she recalibrates the world to suit herself, becoming more beautiful, strong and successful in the process. Or take director and actor Renata Litvinova, who beats her own path through the arts - fearlessly and effortlessly. These and many other heroines of September issue -- indisputable professionals in their fields - are real women: beautiful, elegant, attractive and, in their own way, touching. They are the Thelmas and Louises of our time, who feel constricted in the cage of bourgeois values. They are happier going against the grain, beating the boys at their own game - when their blood races with success, and independence is no enemy of women's happiness. This month's Vogue is dedicated to these strong women - may there be ever more of them - and the no less strong and independent fashions they espouse. - Aliona Doletskaya

Don't move. The only thing I want to hear from you my dear reader is the word 'amen'.

Am I right or AMIRITE? What say you?
