Joan Juliet Buck, Author of that Controversial Piece on Syria's First Lady, Is No Longer Working for Vogue
After a 40 year relationship with Vogue, Joan Juliet Buck--former Vogue Paris editor and the author of that much-maligned profile of Asma al-Assad--has quietly parted ways with the magazine. It's not a new development. Apparently Buck hasn't appeared on Vogue's masthead since February of this year, which is right about the time she started to become more vocal and outspoken about the Syrian regime--and about the qualifications one needs to land a Vogue profile ( like being "extremely thin and very well-dressed.") WWD, in a rather uncharacteristically snarky article, reached out to Vogue for comment about the reasons behind the split and was told by a spokesperson that Buck's contract was up, "simple as that."
