Chioma Nnadi to Replace Edward Enninful as Vogue’s Head of Editorial Content


After years of reported transatlantic power struggles behind the scenes, Anna Wintour has officially confirmed Chioma Nnadi as the successor to outgoing editor-in-chief Edward Enninful at Vogue. In a surprising move, Nnadi will hold the title of ‘head of editorial content,’ with a focus on ‘digital storytelling’ and maintaining Vogue’s ‘interactive’ relationship with readers. This decision will result in the elimination of the all-encompassing role of editor-in-chief, potentially leading Nnadi to report to a multi-tiered structure within the New York office. This appointment might grant Anna Wintour full control over both British and American Vogue, seemingly ending years of rumored power struggles between the two fashion icons.

Speculation within the industry had suggested that Enninful’s departure was a strategic move by Wintour to prevent him from pursuing her own position, as he became a celebrity in his own right. The reshaping of Vogue’s European editions to be overseen by global heads after Conde Nast’s 2020 corporate restructuring further contributed to the shift in power dynamics.

Chioma Nnadi, praised by Wintour for her ‘impeccable’ reputation, is set to make history as the first Black woman to lead the iconic fashion magazine. Nnadi’s journey into the fashion world traces back to her Nigerian father’s influence, instilling in her a passion for fashion and a profound understanding of the significance of Vogue in the cultural conversation.

The transition from Edward Enninful to Chioma Nnadi, described by insiders as “serious” and “clever,” may signal a shift in the dynamics of the fashion magazine. Nnadi is known for her low-key and nuanced approach, setting her apart from Enninful’s high-profile connections and charismatic personality.

As Chioma Nnadi takes the helm, the fashion world will undoubtedly watch closely to see how she navigates the evolving landscape of digital storytelling and maintains Vogue’s standing as a cultural authority in the ever-changing world of fashion. This appointment marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter in Vogue’s storied history.
