Edward Enninful is all about making history when it comes to British Vogue. It was back in 2018 that he welcomed Rihanna as the first black woman to ever grace the title’s all-important September issue and now for June 2020, he makes Judi Dench the magazine’s oldest cover star in its 104-year history. At 85, the legendary British actress poses in a floral Dolce & Gabbana trench (picked by Kate Phelan) before the lens of photographer Nick Knight for the vibrant and delightful cover shot proving age is simply a number.
The cover took our forum members by total surprise. “Glorious! Judi! So amazing to see her land a cover,” applauded honeycombchild straight away.
“Mad respect to British Vogue for featuring Judi!” added GERGIN.
“Very happy to see Judi on this, on any magazine cover to be honest, and the colors look amazing,” appreciated Benn98.
Sharing the same sentiment was Velasco: “What a refreshing surprise, especially in these times! So lovely.”
“This is fabulous! I adore the pink masthead. It’s a very pretty cover. Good for Edward for taking a risk,” commended an equally impressed GivenchyHomme.
Royal-Galliano couldn’t agree more. “Everything about this is so gorgeous. One of the best covers I’ve seen in a while really!”
“This is glorious. Sure Edward’s diversity agenda can seem a bit like window dressing from time to time, but he also does it right pretty often and this is definitely the case here,” voiced [Piece Of Me].
