My hardened, ancient heart is finding this just a tiny bit ... moving. Good deed in naughty world, etc.

If I knew Edward Enninful I might even feel proud of him for doing this.

(Counting down to first mention of the word 'woke'.)

None of them are exactly mingers...

No one could possibly look 'minging' after half a day of the best primping money can buy!

It's lovely. But they should call it London Vogue rather than British Vogue

That's a very fair point, Clymene - but I'm guessing they put it together in rather a hurry so used the people closest to hand. (I don't actually know - haven't read any of it yet.)

Also, of course, we were in lockdown so it would have been a little problematic to race around the country!

Sorry. Not sorry

I love EE's vogue. His intro to this month's vogue (Dame Judy) was very poignant.

I thought it was only mumsnet users that wore fatface....and boden, and seasalt. Never heard of any of them till I joined here and to my knowledge have never seen anyone wear them

I knew of Boden before I came to MN about ten years ago, and had occasionally bought children's clothes from them. I'd never heard of the other two shops. Once I took notice I realised they actually had shops in my nearest city. Which I still haven't managed to step into ...

I have on the other hand been consuming Vogue for more than half a century - and am mostly delighted with EE. Horribly aware that I'm not buying it religiously every month now - but that's because the Internet means I need print magazines much less, it's no reflection on his editorship.

Clymene

Here's the answer, Clymene, from Edward Enninful's Editor's letter:

Over the course of 10 days, photographer Jamie Hawkesworth – armed with no more than a camera, a bicycle and a face mask – travelled the capital to capture, at appropriate social distance, the faces of those whose bravery, or simple commitment to carrying on, has helped so many.

The new edition is available to download from today for £2.99. (Or in shops.)

It's a lovely issue. I needed some escapism.
The key workers and reverse Juergen Teller shoot capture the moment in time.

PerditaProvokesEnmity Fri 05-Jun-20 09:49:09

I didn't find it escapist! (But that's not really what I look for in Vogue.)

It is a particularly good edition, though print magazines really don't work well on a phone screen ...

They had a combined turnover of around £600 million in 2018, which suggests that either you live a very isolated life or you're not very observant.
