Edward Enninful was recently named the next as editor-in-chief at British Vogue and he’s bringing a few fashion friends along for the ride.
Enninful has enlisted supermodel Naomi Campbell, Academy award-winning director Steve McQueen, supermodel Kate Moss and veteran American Vogue creative director Grace Coddington on as contributing editors for the monthly glossy.
“I am thrilled that Kate, Naomi, Steve and Grace are going to work with us in these new roles,” Enninful told Vogue UK. “As two of the biggest international style influencers and supermodels, the impact Naomi and Kate have in today’s culture is enormous. Being an acclaimed filmmaker and Turner Prize-winning artist, Steve will bring an increased depth to the arts within the magazine.”
While Moss and Coddington have worked in some capacity with the brand for years, this will be a new role for Campbell and McQueen.
Enninful’s appointment marks the first time a Black male has held the position and already he’s adding a nice mix of diversity to his lineup.
We can’t wait to see what the iconic supermodel and highly acclaimed director have up their sleeves.
Enninful is set to officially start his new role on August 1.
