Does Anna Wintour Need to Worry About Aliona Doletskaya?

Thu, 09/25/08 — 01:50:15 PM

Founded or unfounded, the buzz about Russian Vogue editor Aliona Doletskaya as Anna Wintour's successor continues to grow, especially since The New York Times brought the possibility up earlier this month while Aliona was in town attending New York Fashion Week.

Page Six is reporting today that Elle has finally surpassed Vogue by 66 ad pages in the October issues — not good for Anna, especially when earlier this week in Moscow, Aliona was introduced as "The next editor of American Vogue." It all seems a little suspect to me — Freudian slip, maybe? —but here's a May profile video of Aliona in case you want to get to know her and her smoker's voice a little better. She and Anna have at least one thing in common — they both love their fur.

Anna, meanwhile, is carrying on with her duties in Milan, where last night, she (randomly) dined alongside Matthew McConaughey and his girlfriend.

Hmmm... I think she does need a successor soon (as does Alex bloody Shulman... ) but I somehow don't think it will be Aliona...

Hmm, I'm very intrigued to see how this will end. One thing I know for sure though is that I really love Aliona's voice and accent!
