Oh how I love a good W editorial. Chic, current, edgy, and frankly just stunning to look at. The creative genius that is Ghanaian style director Edward Enninful has done it again in the November issue featuring supermodels Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss. The ladies are rocking luscious pompadours along with a few pieces from Jason Wu and Dolce & Gabbana. In my opinion, the talent that is Mr. Enninful is seriously underutilized. This man should be doing music videos, movies, and all other forms of visual creation. His aesthetic is always impeccable and has turned W magazine into the premier magazine for all things high-fashion, editorial, and avant-garde (see Rihanna's September issue). I’ve been thinking this for months but I’ll just say it now, W is the new Vogue.

GHANA!!! I saw these shots on tumblr and thought that they were amazingly put together. You're so right; this man is a visionary, and should absolutely get into different avenues of visual creation. It makes me even more proud that he's Ghanaian. His name sounds like someone you've mentioned before here...yea you did (I had to check and make sure, lol). Thanks for continuing to highlight minorities in fashion and print.ReplyDelete
