SU­PER­MODEL Ad­woa Aboah has been un­veiled as the face of Ed­ward En­nin­ful’s first edi­tion of Bri­tish Vogue.

The mag­a­zine’s highly-an­tic­i­pated De­cem­ber is­sue features the Bri­tish model and ac­tivist on its retro-styled cover, sport­ing a strik­ing beauty look com­pris­ing iri­des­cent blue sparkly eye­shadow and a bold red lac­quered lip. A silk head­wrap and state­ment ear­rings com­plete the look.

The cover im­age, which was shot by Amer­i­can fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher Steven Meisel, is in­dica­tive of En­nin­ful’s strat­egy to di­ver­sify the Bri­tish fash­ion bi­ble. Since tak­ing the reins at the pub­li­ca­tion in Au­gust, re­plac­ing long-stand­ing ed­i­tor Alexan­dra Shulman, he has shaken up the editorial team to in­clude a range of ma­jor in­dus­try play­ers, in­clud­ing Naomi Camp­bell, Grace Cod­ding­ton and Pat McGrath.

Mean­while Aboah is be­com­ing one of the most in-de­mand mod­els of the mo­ment, hav­ing been un­veiled ear­lier this month as the new­est face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. The fash­ion star has seen her mod­el­ling ca­reer sky­rocket this year, fronting ma­jor cam- paigns for Dior, Miu Miu, H&M, Gap and many oth­ers, as well as strut­ting down the run­way for most of the in­dus­try’s big­gest lux­ury houses and land­ing a role in L’Oréal’s headline-grab­bing Spring/Sum­mer 2018 show at Paris Fash­ion Week in Oc­to­ber. She has also been busy with “Gurls Talk”, the on­line plat­form she founded that of­fers young women a space to dis­cuss top­ics such as fe­male iden­tity, men­tal ill­ness, ad­dic­tion, sex­u­al­ity and racial di­ver­sity. – AFP Re­laxnews
