Syria's First Lady Asma al-Assad Disappears From Vogue US Website

Anna Wintour’s Vogue team ‘lost’ the online version of their March 2011 lovefest profile of Syria’s first lady Asma al-Assad.

Joan Juliet Buck’s piece ‘Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert’ which ran in Vogue’s March issue made no mention of Syria’s human rights record and asked no tough questions of either Asma al-Assad or her husband.

Gawker writes that the loving protrait of the Syrian dictator’s wife came down from the Vogue website. Checking our link from ‘Brand Anna by Joshua Levine for WSJ Magazine’, March 26, 2011, indeed the link is broken. Anne weighed in:

Even if Syria wasn’t killing protesters in the streets as we speak, we question the ‘soft-focus’ look at Syria’s ruling al-Assad family that landed in the March 2011 issue of Vogue.

Yes, conceded writer Joan Juliet Buck, “In Syria, power is hereditary,” and there are those “souvenir Hezbollah ashtrays” scattered around. But president Bashar al-Assad’s wife, Asma, is nonetheless “glamorous, young and very chic.”

Fashionista points out the The Atlantic weighed in with a major criticism of the Vogue interview and editorial on Feb. 28, 2001. Read Vogue Defends Profile of Syrian First Lady.
