Edward Enninful’s final issue of British Vogue features not one, but 40 stars on the cover, showcasing the powerful women who have influenced his time at the magazine. With influential supermodels, pop icons, and Hollywood megastars, including names such as Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Miley Cyrus, this is a historic issue that celebrates diversity and inclusivity.
The cover was photographed in Manhattan by Steven Meisel and Ned Rogers, and the 40 women flew in from different parts of the world to be part of this historic edition. The departure of Enninful was unexpected news last year, but the impact of his six and a half years as editor at British Vogue is clearly felt in this issue.
With a dedication to women and a commitment to promoting diversity in the fashion world, Enninful’s tenure has included historic firsts such as featuring disabled activists and women over 50 on the cover. What follows his departure is also a first as Chioma Nnadi becomes the first black woman to hold the role as the new editor of British Vogue.
Despite his departure, Enninful remains committed to championing the diversity of voices in fashion, and he hopes that this issue maintains the burst of energy from his time at British Vogue for many years to come.
