Aliona Doletskaya Resigns From Vogue Russia

I am in shock. This is truly unbelievable and I personally didn’t see this one coming considering I just saw her at Chanel FW2010 haute couture three weeks ago.

If you were to go by the official statement on their website, my favourite Vogue Editor in Chief Aliona Doletskaya, whose work I genuinely admire, left Vogue Russia after thirteen years.

Aliona Doletskaya

I have great admiration to her vision.

Her magazine is extraordinary. What separates Vogue Russia from the rest of the snoozefest mainstream glossies is that it has the perfect balance between high fashion and commercialism. Her editorials are always interesting, always strong.

Unlike many, many magazines who usually conform or cater to the masses, Aliona is never shy to make a statement. She breaks the mold, she sets standards and she also creates beauty out of something new, something we’ve never seen on other magazines.

That’s what makes her exceptional.

It’s the end of an era if you ask me. A great loss to the Conde Nast stable of publications.

Aliona, thank you so much for the memories, for inviting me to moscow, for welcoming me to your office, for inspiring me, inspiring us and also, thank you for your support over the recent years.

I wish you nothing but the very best on your future endeavours. I hope to see you sometime soon.



  1. LadyBoy

    She was my all-time favorite Editor in Chief of any magazine. This comes as an absolute shock.

  2. Such a shame, man was she good,i loved how she was never afraid to do something not like many others. Remember that cover with Victoria Beckham? Pale, hat on her head, barely recognizable, sucking a thumb? Who else would dare to take one of the most famous women in the world, and obscure her like that?! It was brilliant, and unlike any celeb cover, every other editor would jump on Beckham’s fame bandwagon to sell the issues, but Aliona was fearless. Like with many of her other content, and covers. She will be missed!

  3. hey just wondering bryan boy you are always talking about vogue and comment on its covers, articles, people working in it etc. but rarely i have read about other glossies like elle, harpers bazaar or even magazines like rush, id etc. seems like a favoritism for VOGUE
    there are many other glossies which are as good or better na?
