Vogue Arabia Names New Editor-in-Chief

The local publisher of Vogue Arabia has appointed Manuel Arnaut as its new editor-in-chief of Vogue Arabia.

The fashion magazine’s new edition for the Middle East had published just two print issues when it was reported that its editor-in-chief, Saudi Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz, would no longer remain in the position. In a statement to insider fashion website Business of Fashion she was quoted saying she was fired because she refused to compromise on her vision for the magazine.

Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz curated the controversial Gigi Hadid Vogue Arabia Cover.

Arnaut is currently the editor-in-chief of Architectural Digest Middle East, which like Vogue Arabia, is a publication of Conde Nast International. He is the second man in a week to have been appointed to the helm of an edition of Vogue, following news that Edward Enninful will be the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue.

Manuel Arnaut began his career at Vogue Portugal and moved over to GQ Portugal where he held the position of editor, as well as having his work published in Vogue and GQ Brazil. He brings over a decade of Condé Nast editorial experience combined with a strong track record of regional success. Arnaut will take over the direction of Vogue Arabia’s multinational and multilingual editorial team. Manuel Arnaut will begin as editor-in-chief of Vogue Arabia May 7.
