With weeks to go until Edward Enninful takes up his role as Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue, and he is already making his presence felt, with the announcement of Naomi Campbell, Steve McQueen and Kate Moss as new contributing editors.
Legendary fashion and creative director and British Vogue alumni, Grace Coddington, also joins as a contributor.
Enninful, who is the first man, indeed, black man to head up the fashion bible, has enormous cache in the fashion and celebrity world, counting A-listers as personal friends. These new appointments could be interpreted as giving a glimpse into the future direction of the publication once he takes up his role on 1 August.
We can’t wait to see the contributions from uber models, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, both formidable personalities who have dominated the worlds of fashion and modelling for decades. Likewise, Steve McQueen CB, an English film director, most noted for winning multiple awards for his 2013 film 12 Years a Slave.
Speaking about the appointments, Enninful, said: “I am thrilled that Kate, Naomi, Steve and Grace are going to work with us in these new roles. 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. I am very much looking forward to working with these friends and colleagues on their ideas for upcoming issues.”
