Ksenia Sobchak made her last performance

Last Friday, in the CDL restaurant Ksenia Sobchak gave a dinner to celebrate the release of the new issue of the magazine L`Officiel - first under her leadership. At the same time her friends and acquaintances came to say farewell to her: Ms. Sobchak decided to leave Russia for a while, as her name appears in the so-called execution list, reported by the media after the murder of Boris Nemtsov.

After the former Russian publisher of L`Officiel Eugeni Zmievets parted with chief editor Evelina Khromtchenko, the life of the Russian version of the magazine has become a series of scandals and lawsuits. At some point, the magazine simply was ceased. There have been attempts to resuscitation,  a couple of years ago the granddaughter of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev Xenia Gorbachev was declared the new editor in chief, finally the magazine was launched, but without the editor in chief. The problem was not solved as long as the owner ID Artcom Media Alexander Fedotov has acquired 80% of the company "Les Editions Jalou Russe" which holds the license to publish the magazine L`Officiel in Russia. At the same time, Mr. Fedotov expressed willingness to invest in restarting edition € 6-8 million ("Kommersant" reported on this on Oct. 7, 2014). To begin with, Mr. Fedotov has invested in new asset the most precious thing he has, namely, Ksenia Sobchak, which up to this point led the magazine SNC, also included in the portfolio of Artcom Media.
