Manuel Arnaut is the new editor-in-chief of Vogue Arabia
Vogue Arabia is only two months old but there have already been changes in the direction. The magazine just announced that Manuel Arnaut is its new editor-in-chief. He is the second man leading an edition of Vogue in less than a week.
The announcement comes after Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz told media outlets that she had been sacked. The Saudi royal created Vogue Arabia and made history by putting Gigi Hadid in a jewel-encrusted veil on the inaugural cover.
Manuel Arnaut is now the brain behind the Arabic Vogue, after working in Vogue and GQ Portugal. Arnaut has worked for Conde Nast for more than a decade. Also, he is one of the responsible for the launch of Architectural Digest Middle East in 2015.
The portuguese creative commits to working towards “ a Vogue Arabia that is the proud voice of the region, representing the strength and allure of the Arab woman”, said Manuel Arnaut.
Finally, Vogue Arabia launched online in Arabic and English last year. Its first print edition released this March. The publisher is Nervora, a digital media company that is building a portfolio in the Middle East.
