The polemic substitution of his predecessor who was let go just after two issues was put to rest by a Vogue arabia press release stating that Deena Aljuhade Abdulaziz had earned a place in history of fashion and in the history of its publication.
Many press outlets, blog and public figures are now concerned that Vogue has chosen an european man to represent the "voice" of arab woman.
Arnault leaves Architectural Digest Middle East to occupy one of the most coveted jobs in the history of fashion. We wish all the success for our country men and look foward to all the beautiful things in his future and in the future of Vogue Arabia.
