The Zelenskys’ Defiant Vogue Cover

The extravaganza that introduces the President of Ukraine and First Lady in Vogue, along with a glossy photoshoot of the famous portraitist Annie Leibovitz has prompted an outcry from a predictable chorus of Western scolding. How can the Zelenskys indulge in such frills when the war is on? Certainly they have more urgent demands on their time. How do they pay back all our donations? And, of course, there are the Wokish Fringes, who rant with heated objections to the heteronormative nature of the mating, not to mention (gasp) the implicit woman-as-servant symbolism.

But the actual profile and interview, which is said to focus on Ms. Zelensky (Olena Zelenska), comes across as matter-of-fact, gritty and completely focused on Ukraine’s struggles. Also, none of the photographs come across as extravagant or loudly fashion-conscious. Without any factual reason, the din seems to have been largely provoked by the quietly confident elegance on display.
