It's been a long time since I have been excited to read a magazine. So often, the high end fashion or out-of-reach beauty has made me disconnect. The content hasn't been enough to cure my curious appetite about other interests relevant to the life I lead; work, politics, arts, culture.  

Edward Enninful's first Vogue issue is released this week. The cover makes no mention of trends, 'IT' bags or new mascaras; but lists power players in the world of arts and politics. Is this a brand new direction for Vogue?

The cover star is mixed race British model and feminist activist Adwoa Aboah, signalling Enninful's mission to engage in diversity. 

I'm so glad that inclusivity and diversity is a hot topic; it has been brewing for some time and finally it feels as if it's here to stay. We've seen fashion and beauty brands embrace diversity with both hands in 2017 and I can't wait to see more.
