Supermodel Naomi Campbell covers the March 2019 issue of British Vogue, her first under Edward Enninful’s role as editor-in-chief. Sharing his thoughts about the special cover and shoot styled by himself, Enninful said: “Of course, the photographer had to be Steven Meisel. When Naomi works with Meisel, she practically becomes a teenager again, shy and focused, and so it proved during our two-day shoot in New York together at the tail end of last year. They know each other so well that they don’t really need words. Dancers came in, Kendrick Sampson (an actor and activist we both admire) played the role of her lover, and even her driver was pulled in to orbit around her. I hope you enjoy the result. It is the story of a real woman – and a genuine icon. “
Speaking of Sampson being an activist, this is his tweet on this Sunday morning, NFL Superbowl Sunday.:
NFL is a perfect example of the fact that diversity ALONE doesn’t solve racism, & that racist culture of essentially “you can have a seat at the oppressive table as long as you don’t affect my toxic masculine white supremacy (& you better be grateful” is alive and thriving.
Rising model Fran Summers, a 19-year-old from North Yorkshire, covers the November 2018 issue of British Vogue, going solo after her May 2018 nine-model appearance. Vogue Edward-in-Chief Edward Enninful packs up elegant silhouettes from recent couture shows, recreating an ode to the British invasion of New York in the 1960s, lensed by Inez & Vinoodh.
Enninful muses that because Fran is a “proper beauty with universal appeal, there were actual gasps from onlookers as I walked her through the streets in her Dior gown. Literally, the crowds parted, taxis stopped, horns honked and the whole world seemed to stop and stare. She had arrived. It was, as we say in fashion, “a moment”.

Speaking about the new issue, Enninful writes (paragraphs out of orde3r):
“I always knew it had to be Rihanna,” editor-in-chief Edward Enninful wrote in his monthly editor’s letter. “A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her. No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental the mood, you never lose her in the imagery.”
Oprah dazzles in a series of bespoke fashion created for her by Erdem, Christopher Kane, Simone Rocha, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen in 'Oprah's Next Act', styled by British Vogue's Edward Enninful. Photographers Mert & Marcus capture Oprah as an empress sharing her thoughts on race, feminism, her Royal wedding appearance, the loves and losses in her life – and that rumored move into politics – in a rare one-on-one interview with writer Decca Aitkenhead./ Hair by Nicole Mangrum and Malcolm Edwards; make-up by Derrick Rutledge
Always America's spiritual healer, Oprah has choice words for Americans struggling under the onslaught of Donald Trump's dark, disruptive presidency. As for a presidential run, Oprah once again says 'no way'.
“In that political structure – all the non-truths, the bullshit, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on – I feel like I could not exist,” Winfrey says. “I would not be able to do it. It's not a clean business. It would kill me.”
Winfrey goes on to explain how she squares her spirituality and self-help advocacy with the #Metoo and Time’s Up movements. "People talk about 'these are such dark times', but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently,” she asserts. “I see, 'Isn't this remarkable that we're waking up?' For years, women have endured craziness. This is what's happening to people. They're allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You've got to lean to the happiness."
In related news, Oprah will take that optimism to South Africa, joining Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, Femi Kuti, Gayle King and Bozoma St. John in Johannesburg on Dec. 2 for the 2018 Global Citizen Festival, aimed at ending poverty by 2030.
