The Guardian reports:

His career in fashion began when he was scouted as a model at the age of 16; by 18 he had been made style director of i-D magazine.

Enninful went on to work as a contributing editor at Italian Vogue and later American Vogue, before joining W in 2011. He was awarded an OBE in 2016 for services to fashion.

Announcing the appointment, Condé Nast, publisher of Vogue, called Enninful “an influential figure in the communities of fashion, Hollywood and music which shape the cultural zeitgeist”. Chairman Jonathan Newhouse cited his work at Italian Vogue in particular as having attained “landmark status in recent cultural history”.

He added: “By virtue of his talent and experience, Edward Enninful is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue.”

Donatella Versace once said of Enninful: “Edward is a beautiful and attractive man and he has this sexy, deep look. I am very upset that he is gay—but don’t tell him.”
