Once the students were seated, in she walked. She wore tortoise shell circular framed glasses, a navy blue blazer with an assortment of gold broaches just left of the lapel and a pair of chocolate brown pants.

  • 2011
    In its March 2011 issue, Vogue published a profile that Buck wrote about Asma al-Assad, wife of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, describing her as "glamorous, young and very chic—the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies."
    More Details Hide Details The piece caused a furor within the East Coast US media as news of al-Assad's violent repression of his people in mid-March began to sink in. In April, Max Fisher attacked it in The Atlantic as an ill-timed "puff piece" that ignored human rights abuses under Syria's Ba'athist regime. Paul Farhi wrote in The Washington Post, "It may have been the worst-timed, and most tin-eared, magazine article in decades." In May 2011 the article was removed from Vogue's website, even though the magazine had previously said it had taken "more than a year" to cultivate. The New York Times subsequently reported that the Assad "family paid the Washington public relations firm Brown Lloyd James $5,000 a month to act as a liaison between Vogue and the first lady, according to the firm." Washington Posts Jennifer Rubin observed, "It was the Washington liberal foreign policy community that, for years, had fancied Bashar al-Assad as a constructive player in the Middle East," specifically naming President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Quoting Lee Smith, Rubin pointed out that John Kerry, Teresa Heinz, James A. Baker and Brent Scowcroft, among others, courted Assad in an attempt to sway him from Iran. "American liberals and Republican realpolitikers were every bit as sycophantic and deluded as Buck," she wrote. Yet in the wake of the controversy, Buck's contract with Vogue was not renewed.
  • 2010
