Dasha Zhukova Is Leaving Pop


Dasha Zhukova has resigned from Pop after becoming editor-in-chief of the magazine less than two years ago, as the surprise and scoffed-at replacement for styling wizard Katie Grand. Zhukova is going on to where lots of departing magazine editors go: somewhere digital! A Pop spokesman said Zhukova is leaving to work on "independent digital publishing projects in the arts." Pop editorial director Ashley Heath will replace Zhukova, whose final issue, the spokesman gloated, had twice as many advertisers and almost three times the ad pages than the issues Katie Grand produced. If there was anything to be gleaned from that New Yorker profile of her, it is that she's certainly well connected.
