An Announcement…


It is with no small degree of sadness that I share this news with you today. The June issue of Rue will be my last with the magazine. After weighing a number of personal factors quite heavily these last few months, I've arrived at this decision knowing it is the right one for me at this time in my life. I wish my cofounder Crystal and the rest of the team all the best in the world as they move forward with Rue.


I feel so blessed to have worked not only with my fellow editors but also with our extended family of photographers, designers, stylists, and others who have helped bring Rue to life. Being a member of this community is such a gift, one that I will continue to cherish in all my endeavors here on the blog and elsewhere. Thank you to everyone–readers, contributors, and advertisers–for your support.
