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