Supermodel Naomi Campbell added another notch under her belt as she was tagged by the first male editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Edward Enninful, as a contributing editor alongside supermodel Kate Moss.
The fashion icon’s career started at the age of 15 and is now one of the top three in-demand supermodels of our time. She has also co-starred on Lee Daniels’ Star and was previously featured on Empire. Not only is she friends with British Vogue’s Editor and Chief but she has also been regularly featured in Vogue.
Hailing all the way from Ghana, Enninful will replace Alexandra Shulman as the head of the fashion bible. His fashion career kicked-off when he was 18 as he was appointed as fashion director at i-D, making him the youngest fashion director for an international publications. He has also worked for both Italian and American Vogue and served as the creative director at W Magazine for over six years.
In his new position he has already made some significant changes to the British Vogue team by firing fashion director Lucinda Chambers. “A Vogue spokesman said: ‘It’s usual for an incoming Editor to make some changes to the team. Any changes made are done with the full knowledge of senior Management.'”
Campbell and Enninful are continuing to make international power moves in the fashion industry. The two will help to bring a fresh new look to British Vogue, but will also be able to create an atmosphere that welcomes and highlights men and women of color in the industry. These two fashion icons will be the turning point for faces of color in British Vogue and will give people of color many more chances to grace the pages of the fashion bible. The world better watch out as this pair is a force to be reckoned with that will change the game like never before.
