The wait is over: Edward Enninful’s debut cover as editor-in-chief of British Vogue is here. Ever since Condé Nast announced his appointment back in April, our forums have been rife with speculation as to who might score the December cover — and we called it. Fronting the newly unveiled (and utterly divine) cover is model-of-the-moment Adwoa Aboah. In addition to the wonderful casting, the legendary Steven Meisel came on board to photograph the cover story with Enninful himself taking up the role as stylist. In the electrifying, vintage-inspired cover image, the current face of Marc Jacobs Beauty wears a look from Jacobs’ Spring 2018 collection.
Our forums erupted with excitement. “This is so beautiful. It looks like a vintage cover but there is something so fresh about it. Adwoa looks so glamorous! The colors, the lighting, the framing and the styling are all gorgeous; everything works perfectly together,” applauded LastNight.
“I love this! It looks so vintage and GLAM!” praised Khabeer.
“Amazing! Love the retro glam look, even I like Adwoa in this. Finally, Meisel shows up after months being absent from magazines. I wish his collaboration with UK Vogue will be regular and become his new playground for his talent,” projected fierrousa.
Youarearockstar was quick to express the same enthusiasm. “This is incredible – simple as that,” he declared.
Also giving the cover a standing ovation was Miss Dalloway: “Now THAT is how you usher in a new era of Vogue!! BRAVO Edward, it’s sublime and everything I hoped for!”
“Wonderful cover. Gorgeous and full of glamour! And shot by Meisel!” voiced fashionlover2001.
“BY STEVEN MEISEL. Those are the only words I need to see on that cover,” sighed a delighted tigerrouge.
Velasco couldn’t believe his eyes either. “W-O-W. Now THIS is a makeover! This cover is giving me life! Looking forward to the contents,” he gushed.
Stay tuned for more from Enninful’s debut issue of Vogue (set to feature a 14-page cover story of Adwoa by Steven Meisel). Add your own two cents here
