The history of “being a first lady in Turkey” could only be a short-lived documentary or at most a six-episode long TV series. The characters are there yet there wouldn't be much dialogue or events to carry the story line. We now have Dilek Imamoğlu, the First Lady of Istanbul. Her first ‘bold’ move came only three months after the election results: A cover in glossy fashion magazine. It’s the first time in our still fledgling glossy magazine history that an unofficial first lady or any “first lady” appears on the cover of a magazine.
