Edward Enninful put Adwoa Aboah on the cover of his debut issue with columns featuring Zayn Malik, Cara Delevingne, Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, Naomi Campbell, Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown and more.
Many responded favorably to the choice of putting Aboah on the cover and some who haven’t purchased or read British Vogue announced they would read it for the first time.

Also included in the January 2018 British Vogue issue will be a feature on Tom Ford.
The issue includes the heading “Taylor Remade” and with her new sound and new album Reputation, it seems a perfect choice.
Taylor included in her thank you message that she enjoyed “contagious laughter” while on set. Many fans are hoping to see that emotion expressed in the photo shoot.
Taylor Swift’s tweet is going viral and has already garnered more than 1,000 comments. Fans from around the world asked the singer to come to their country, while many told her she looked gorgeous and couldn’t wait to see the full issue.
Others shared their excitement for her Reputation tour that begins in May 2018. Some fans pointed out that the cover represents the newer, edgier, and even darker Taylor Swift that she revealed in Reputation and her new videos.
Swift is no longer wearing cotton-candy pink or red lipstick, but a deeper burgundy that’s nearly black. Some have pointed to the lipstick color choice as a metaphor for Swift’s growth and darker sound.
