Edward Enninful reveals first British Vogue cover

NEW ERA: Edward Enninful

NEW BRITISH Vogue Editor-In-Chief Edward Enninful has revealed his first ever British Vogue cover.

The cover features 25-year-old Ghanaian-British model Adwoa Aboah photographed by Steven Meisel. The stunning issue marks the beginning of a much-anticipated new era at the magazine having been revealed as Alexandra Shulman's successor back in April.

Having previously pledged that his role as editor-in-chief will see diversity embraced on and behind the pages of Vogue, Enninful's December issue marks only the third time a black model has had a solo British Vogue cover. Naomi Campbell covered the August 2002 issue and Jourdan Dunn starred for February 2015.

Enninful was awarded an OBE for services to diversity in fashion in 2016, and has highlighted his desire to further increase diversity at the high fashion publication.

In an interview with the BBC ahead of his debut issue, Mr Enninful said: “My Vogue is about being inclusive, it’s about diversity. Showing different women, different body shapes, different races, class. To be tackling gender.

“Before I got the job I spoke to certain women and they felt they were not represented by the magazine, so I wanted to create a magazine that was open and friendly. A bit like a shop that you are not scared to walk into.

“You are going to see all different colours, shapes, ages, genders, religions. That I am very excited about. You are going to see less of models who don’t look so healthy.”
