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?

Amazing Aliona

Right before the Marc Jacobs show on Monday, I had an afternoon meeting/chat and drinks at the Gramercy Tavern with Simon Robins and the stunning Aliona Doletskaya of Vogue Russia, my favourite edition of Vogue.

As you know, I’m a super big fan of Aliona and to spend time with her is something I never thought would happen. She’s INCREDIBLE! That’s all I have to say.

More updates to follow.

PS. Thank you for giving me a ride to the MJ show!

Bling it Up! + Dree Hemingway for Vogue Russia August 2009 Cover

Bling it Up!

I'm sure you've seen the August 2009 issue of Vogue Russia with Dree Hemingway by now. IMO, it's Aliona's strongest cover of the year so far.

Dree Hemingway for Vogue Russia August 2009

Well, I was inspired to wear a little bit of bling bling (or should I say bing bing cause we're talking about cubic zirconia here not diamonds) myself. I don't think I'll be able to afford ginormous Graff rocks in this lifetime but lookie lookie at this cute treasure I picked up last week. It's huge! It's perfect for those days when you want to punch someone on the face to leave a long, lasting impression. Hah!

Loves it!

Aliona Doletskaya on CNN!

It’s not just Anna Wintour racking up precious television airtime but my beloved Aliona Doletskaya (Russian Vogue Editor-in-Chief) is on CNN!

I’m not 100% sure about this but a friend who is a stylist told me that as far as circulation count is concerned, Vogue Russia is one of the top three, beating Vogue Paris and Vogue Italia. The other two are British and the American editions.

Victoria Beckham for Vogue Russia February 2009 Cover

Victoria Beckham for Vogue Russia February 2009 Cover

In a very rare feat, one of my favourite Vogues ever, Vogue Russia, featured a celebrity — top fem bot Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) — on their February 2009 issue cover.

I hope celebrities-on-covers won't become the norm with Vogue Russia though. In any case, it's still 104% fashyonnnn. The cover is fierce and cheeky at the same time. Posh looks absolutely flawless and stunning. It's nice to see her without the fake bake and that hat is gorgeous! Can't wait to see scans online when they are available.
