Lucinda Chambers’ First Interview Since Leaving Vogue Has Been Taken Down

An interview in which Lucinda Chambers was quoted as making accusations against British Vogue has been taken down.

It was Chambers’ first interview since stepping down as fashion director from the publication in May and it earned her praise from some social media users.

The interview, entitled ‘Will I Get a Ticket?’ by Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, was briefly published on Vestoj.

“A month and a half ago I was fired from Vogue. It took them three minutes to do it,” Chambers is quoted as saying.

The article claims none of Chambers’ colleagues knew – not even HR.

Chambers is also said to comment on certain front covers she believes were “crap”.

“Truth be told, I haven’t read Vogue in years,” she said. “Maybe I was too close to it after working there for so long, but I never felt I led a Vogue-y kind of life.”

Chambers, who had a career with the prestigious fashion title for 36 years, made the announcement of her departure on Wednesday 17 May.

“I adore British Vogue and am so very proud to have been a part of it for so long,” Chambers said at the time.

HuffPost UK contacted British Vogue but they declined to comment. We have also contacted Vestoj and will update this piece on their response.
