Edward Enninful is OUT as Vogue editor: Harry and Meghan’s pal – the British edition’s first black and first male chief – is leaving role amid rumours of a rift with publisher Anna ‘nuclear’ Wintour
- Edward Enninful, 51, will be taking on a new global role at publisher Conde Nast
British Vogue’s editor-in-chief has announced he is leaving his role, amid rumours of a rift with Anna Wintour.
Edward Enninful, 51, who is the first male and first black editor of British Vogue, told magazine staff yesterday that he will be taking on a new global role at the publisher Conde Nast.
It comes amid rumours that there has been a power struggle between him and Vogue’s overall editor-in-chief Dame Anna ever since he took up his post in 2017 – which Vogue has denied.
In an internal email sent yesterday, Mr Enninful said: ‘I am excited to share that from next year I will be stepping into the newly appointed position of editorial adviser of British Vogue and global creative and cultural adviser of Vogue.

‘To optimise my increased global responsibilities, and to give British Vogue the new focus it will deserve, we saw the opportunity to hire, in concert with our global editorial structure, a head of editorial content for British Vogue.’
Mr Enninful made radical changes to British Vogue. He featured its first transgender cover model, actress Laverne Cox, and its first solo male cover star – Oscar-nominated actor Timothee Chalamet.
