Vogue’s first cover under new Editor Edward Eninnful
Shot by photographer Steven Meisel, this first offering from Vogue Magazine under the direction of Edward Eninnful certainly delights with the flavour of the year Ms Adwoa Aboah, who is hot property right now and acts as the front face on the shelf for this ultimately, very british issue of December’s Vogue. The first in what sees Eninnful takes the reins of the leading Condé Nast title.
The stylist that has kept Anna Windor warm through the seasons now returns to his roots with a powerhouse of British talent, all eager to leave their fingerprints on this landmark issue. Not only do we have a black Editor calling the shots at Vogue Magazine, he is a man. A alteration that brakes a long, stagnant tradition.
It’s a little shameful that Naomi Campbell (in 2003) and Jourdan Dunn (in 2015) are two of the few models of colour that have featured on the cover considering there are 12 issues per year. But something tells us that it’s all about to change under Eninnful’s watchful eyes who is all about diversity and paving a new legacy for the stale publication.
