Meet the man who be be taking on the role of Editor of British Vogue


It came as a shock to many when Alexandra Shulman announced she would be leaving British Vogue this summer.

After 25 years in the role of Editor-in-chief, the fashion maven is going her own way, and now her successor has been named.

Taking her place in one of the most coveted roles in the world is Edward Enninful.

Condé Nast International chairman and chief executive Jonathan Newhouse broke the news this morning, saying that Edward is "an influential figure in the communities of fashion, Hollywood and music which shape the cultural zeitgeist.

He added that "by virtue of his talent and experience, Edward is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue."

Since 2011, Edward has been the fashion and creative director of W Magazine, and he has previously worked with Italian Vogue, American Vogue, and countless other high fashion campaigns and editorials.

Oh, and did we mention he received an OBE last year?!

He will officially take on the role on August 1.
