INSIDE VOGUE

I think I speak for many when I say what a surprise it was when Alexandra Shulman, editor-in-chief of British Vogue for more than 25 years, made the announcement at the start of the year that she will be stepping down from her role and the more recent news that Edward Enninful (the first male and black editor of the magazine) will be taking over the position. Last year Alexandra relased her book 'Inside Vogue: A Diary Of My 100th Year' which I honestly couldn't recommened enough, especially to my fellow fashionistas. From meeting Kate Moss for coffee, to her fear of flying and the legendary shoot with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge who was the cover star in a 10-page shoot within the June 2016 issue, this book really does have something for everyone. Alexandra is an icon who has contributed so much to the world of fashion, this book divulges details in both her world in and outside of Vogue and what it's like to helm the magazine. Whilst reading the book you begin to see things in a completely different perspective of somebody who is a key figure in the industry and the challenges she has faced. From everyday dilemmas such as her boiler breaking to getting A list celebrities to feature in the magazine, all written in a very personal and honest format which I believe was her intention. The book was given to me as a gift last Christmas and as you can see below is signed by Alexandra herself, something I feel very lucky to have and will treasure to remember her time with Vogue.
