Dinner With Jean Paul Gaultier in Red Square, Moscow

Dinner With Jean Paul Gaultier in Red Square, Moscow

I'm still trying to recover from yesterday's tragic news.

The folks at Vogue Russia just posted a recent video of Aliona Doletskaya having a lovely chat with Jean Paul Gaultier.

Aliona is bad ass! How many chain-smoking, BRA-LESS (?), tank top-wearing, husky-voiced Editors who still looks chic while interviewing a legendary French designer in the middle of Red Square do you know? She's irreplaceable!

We'll miss you Aliona!!!!!!!!

Please come to America! There are tons of magazines out there who need your ferocity.

Aliona Doletskaya Resigns From Vogue Russia [Алена Долецкая]

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.

Stunning eh? Vogue Russia never disappoints.

Meanwhile, did you hear the news that American Harper's Bazaar is featuring, hold on to your seats, Jennifer Aniston on their September issue cover? SHOCK, AWE, HORROR, GASP!

I threw up a little in my mouth when I read that online. Isn't that what, Jennifer Aniston's  878,949,939,904,009th cover? Way to go Harper's Bazaar for breaking ground and pushing the envelope with your oh-so-fresh cover choice. High-five!

Natasha Poly for Vogue Russia January 2010

Natasha Poly for Vogue Russia January 2010

When I visited the Vogue Russia office in Moscow a few weeks ago, I asked one of the lovely Voguettes who the lucky girl is for January 2010. They didn't name names but they told me it's my FAVOURITE model of all time.

Favourite who? Watch this vid or else you are dead to me.

But of course.

Aliona Doletskaya's Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2010 Bag

Aliona Doletskaya's Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2010 Bag

You've seen Victoria Beckham debut that cheeky and chic Louis Vuitton messenger bag with the fox fur tail keychain. Well, here's yet another bag from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection, this time it's Aliona Doletskaya's, beside from my very old Goyard. Like what I said before, I went straight to the Vogue Russia office as soon as I landed into Moscow after traveling for 26 hours with no time to drop my bags or change clothes at the hotel.

You honestly have no idea how GLAD I am not to have worn pyjamas to the airport (like I usually do)....

Moscow Morning

Moscow Morning

I know most people balk and complain about the changing of the season in the northern hemisphere but I welcome it with open arms. For the first time in weeks, I finally feel at peace. I get a strange feeling of calm and serenity whenever it's gray, cloudy and cold. It's not THAT cold in Moscow (in fact the sun is back) but still.. it's a refreshing change from the horrible, humid and hot weather back home. How funny. I spoke to the gorgeous Miroslava Duma last night and we both agreed that us human beings want something that we usually cannot have... like the weather, for example.

Meanwhile, Claudia Schiffer is on the cover of the December 2009 issue of Russian Vogue

I'm very happy.

Reporting for Duty

Reporting for Duty

Just a quick post to let you know I arrived here in Moscow safe and sound after being away from the computer for almost 30 hours. I got here three hours ago.

Five minutes after checking-in at my hotel, I rushed to the Vogue Russia office to meet Aliona Doletskaya once again. This time, not in New York, not in Milan and not in Paris but in Moscow. Aliona, as you know, Editor in Chief of Vogue Russia. Aliona looked stunning as always and her team, super friendly and chic girls, are the best!

Aliona Doletskaya, Vogue Russia

I'm in tears right now, I swear. It's so surreal. I had goosebumps every where I looked in the office -- there are so many images of beauty and fashion and art, it's inspirational!

Thank you to my new Russian friends for making everything possible.

I'll post more entries and photos later. I need to get ready soon because I have several events I need to go tonight and I'm kinda late.

I love you all. The best has yet to come. Keep dreaming like I do and don't let ANYONE stop you from doing so.  Because someday, you never know, your dreams might come true! 

Ok ok time to put on my fur.

Алёна Долецкая - Истории в Деталях

My knowledge of Russian is very limited but I love this video interview of Vogue Russia's Aliona Doletskaya at Истории в Деталях (History in Details).

I wish some generous soul put English subtitles to it but oh well.

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

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.

Aliona Doletskaya

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! [video]

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.

Thank you Vogue Russia!

Thank you Vogue Russia!

Yeehaw! Finally, my own personal copy of Vogue Russia in flesh (or should I say in print) delivered direct to my mailbox. As I previously reported, Magdalena Frackowiak is on the cover of this month's issue.

This magazine is a great source of inspiration not only because of their covers but also its content. It's so sad they don't sell it here in Manila.

Thank YOU so much to the lovely angel over there up in Moscow for the generous and kind subscription. I look forward to getting inspired every month.
