Aliona Doletskaya Resigns from Vogue Russia, Is Replaced By Tatler Russia Editor-in-Chief

>> Founding Vogue Russia editor-in-chief Aliona Doletskaya, once rumored to be a candidate for Anna Wintour's job, resigned from the magazine yesterday after 12 years.

In a memo notifying staffers, Conde Nast International president Jonathan Newhouse wrote: “Some time ago, Aliona Doletskaya told me that she would like to leave the Vogue Russia editor-in-chief’s post, which she has occupied for almost 13 years, and start a new life, probably to write a book or try her hand in a new field. As Russia—as well as the rest of the world—was still going through economically hard times, I asked Aliona to wait for a better time to do this. Now, it’s obvious that we are coming out of the crisis, thus I don’t want to interfere with Aliona’s plans anymore. I accept her decision to leave the magazine with great sorrow.”

She already has a successor »

Today, Newhouse confirmed Tatler Russia editor-in-chief Victoria Davydova as Doletskaya's replacement, effective immediately. She previously served as Vogue's beauty editor until 2002, when she moved to become editor-in-chief of Russian Glamour (where she stayed until 2008, when she left for Tatler). At 40, she is the youngest current Vogue editor-in-chief.
