Ingrid Sischy and Sandra Brandt just got named International Editors of German and Russian Vogues. The duo's already been contributing to both Spanish and Italian Vanity Fair since they launched last September, and Ingrid's been a contributing editor for Vanity Fair US since 1997. The Conde Nast press release says, "Ingrid and Sandy are a unique journalistic team, full of ideas and with strong ties to the worlds of Hollywood, fashion and the arts." That dose of Hollywood might be perfect for Vanity Fair but it's fashion they'll need to keep up with Aliona Doleteskaya at Russian Vogue. Which we guess explains their much discussed presence and frantic note-taking in almost every front row in Paris. As for sharing their handful of international jobs, we wonder what would happen if one was sent to German Vogue and one sent to Russian - does splitting them up dilute their genius?
Former Vogue Russia EIC Aliona Doletskaya is Launching Two European Editions of Interview Magazine
Aliona Doletskaya's departure from Vogue Russia raised more than a few questions, but mostly people just wondered, "Where would she go next?" Despite rumors that she would replace Anna Wintour at American Vogue, or Carine Roitfeld at Vogue Paris, the most likely scenario was that she would take over Pop from fellow Russian Dasha Zhukova. Instead, Doletskaya will launch two European editions of Interview magazine--one in Russia at the end of 2011 and one in Germany at the beginning of 2012. She will serve as editor-in-chief of both publications. This is great news for Doletskaya, but it's also good news for Brant Publications, the publisher of Interview.
