  • A few have wondered at her recent appointment, knowing the Vanity Fair century long formula has been glamour, power, success, and buoyancy, whereas Radhika had a more studious background. It appears Jones must take the experience of helping Time magazine transition into the digital age, and work it on a larger scale for Vanity Fair.

  1. Interesting to note a few details of a person of “Asian Origin” being the editor of Vanity Fair. Jones has enough exposure and experience to catch the eyes of the young growing female population who want to possibly follow in her footsteps or, more so, to read and learn of such recognized editorial writers. It goes without saying, she has a great personality and beauty to be in the limelight.

  2. Amazing women one who can inspire many of today’s young women. Myself having five granddaughters I always encourage them to observe and learn. Miss Jones is a good icon for that nothing is unattainable! I applaud her.
