LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM / NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (REUTERS / BBC) – Edward Enninful’s first British Vogue issue hit news-stands on Friday (November 10).
In an interview with the BBC, the editor-in-chief said he wanted to create a magazine that was “open and friendly”.
The December issue features British-Ghanaian model and activist Adwoa Aboah on the cover, with Sadiq Khan, Zadie Smith, Naomi Campbell and Skepta inside.
Enninful was appointed in April as the fashion bible’s new editor-in-chief, making him the first male editor in the publication’s 100-year history. Previously, he had also worked for the Italian and American versions of Vogue.
Ghanaian-born Enninful is the successor to Alexandra Shulman, who announced in January she would be stepping down from the magazine after 25 years in charge.
