THE WHAT? Kate Moss has been announced as the cover star for the January 2021 issue of Vogue, with Julia Sarr-Jamois and Poppy Kain promoted to Vogue fashion directors.
THE DETAILS Moss will feature on the cover some 28 years following her Vogue debut, with Editor Edward Enninful stating, “If 2020 has taught us something of what we can expect from 2021, it is that it will be unpredictable. But I can say this much with certainty – there will always be Kate Moss.”
Fashion Editor-at-Large Julia Sarr-Jamois and Poppy Kain, Senior Fashion Editor, will move up the masthead in their new roles as Fashion Directors, and have both been long-serving stalwarts of the fashion world.
Sarr-Jamois has had styling work shown in campaigns for the likes of Moschino Cheap & Chic and Sonia Rykiel, while Kain has held roles at titles such as Dazed & Confused and Times Magazine.
THE WHY? Speaking of the promotions, Enninful said, “Coming from a different generation to my own, they bring an evolving perspective and have a real sense of how women want to dress – Julia with her exquisite eye for modernity, for colour and clean lines, and Poppy with her twin senses of fantasy and wearability, coupled with a quintessentially British flair. They are well-equipped to help lead fashion into the future.”
