Black Star: Edward Enninful
If you're a fashion gal like me -you will already know, this iconoclastic, superordinate doyenne of the fashion world, -stylist Edward Enninful (above with fellow fashionista and uber Vogue stylist -Grace Coddington). Born in Ghana and known for his beautiful, innovate editorial work -and for working with others fashion greats -like hairstylist Guido and uber make-up artist Pat McGrath -Edward was destined for greatness. This trailblazer was appointed fashion director of uber fashion magazine, i-D at the age of 18, and instantly became the youngest editor of an international glossy (a title he still holds today) -and presently, works as contributing editor at Italian Vogue (Mr Enninful was the stylist behind Italian Vogue's 'Black Issue'), L'uomo Vogue and American Vogue. Edward has worked for the best and is arguably the most sort after fashion stylist on the planet and is the, go-to-guy for runway presentations and advertising campaigns (Dolce And Gabbana, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Missoni, Anna Molinari Blumarine, Allessandro Del'acqua, H by Hilfiger, Aquascutum and Commes Des Garcons, and beauty giants like -Lancome, Covergirl and M.A.C). Kudos Edward...
