It looks like a new Age of Elegance is about to begin at the magazine, with Margaret detailing on the editor’s page the “renovation” she is embarking on with her debut March 2011 issue. In her own words, “Truth be told, even the most marvelous, exquisitely decorated house needs to be refreshed from time to time, which is exactly what our editors, art department, photographers, writers and I have been working on over the past two months”.
I have seen Margaret at various Elle Decor sponsored and young collectors events around Manhattan over the past few years and she herself is always impeccably dressed and has a classic personal style that we can admire. She is usually seen in an uber-chic black knee-length ensemble, her waist always cinched to show off her athletically trim figure and she is inevitably wearing fabulous shoes. I’ve often wondered her age, because she is always stunning….she is 52. Lucky for us, there will be many years ahead of good things from Margaret Russell. We have no doubt and can’t wait to see how Architectural Digest evolves!
