‘I’m black, I’m gay, I’m not rich & I’m not thin’

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - FRONT -

There is a scene in the film The Septem­ber Is­sue when a bril­liant young stylist goes into Anna Win­tour’s New York of­fice to show her his proofs from a shoot. “Where’s the glam­our?” she asks him sharply. “It’s Vogue. Let’s lift it.” Now that stylist, Ed­ward En­nin­ful, is the new edi­tor-in-chief of Bri­tish Vogue and I’m the one wor­ry­ing about what to wear to meet him in his of­fice. But he’s de­ter­mined not to be scary. He has read­ing glasses rather than sun­glasses and speaks softly, with a vast smile. His Boston ter­rier, Ru, has left a trail of slob­ber on his im­mac­u­late black suit. And he isn’t wear­ing any socks with his brogues.
