Russia's stock market may have suffered a tremendous fall in the past few weeks just like the rest of the world but that didn't stop the glittery Moscow types from celebrating Russian Vogue's tenth anniversary the other night. All the usual jet setters like Derek Blasberg, Eugenie Niarchos, and Camilla Al Fayed showed up to drink Veuve Clicquot all night. Camilla is my favorite socialite thanks in part to her amazing taste and how beautiful is that head piece she was wearing? And those rings? To die!!
It's pretty amazing that Russian Vogue has been so successful (they have a circulation of 300,000) considering that it started in less than stellar economic conditions and in place that, until recently, wasn't really known for high fashion. But now it has some of the best editorial fashion spreads in the business and an impressive cover resume thanks mostly to its editor-in-chief, Aliona Doletskaya. Looking back Russian Vogue has had a really phenomenal year and I can't wait to see where it goes in the next ten!
If you want to see what all the fashion fuss is about (and you have an extra $16.50...thats the US price for Russian Vogue) check out the December issue with Naomi Campbell on the cover!
