Anna Wintour Taught Stylist Edward Enninful That Fashion Can Be Fun

Yes, we are huge fans of Edward Enninful's work with photographers like Steven Meisel and Craig McDean, but our favorite Enninful moment is a short scene during The September Issue when the superstar stylist claims (giant Jamba Juice in hand) he wants to kill himself after an upsetting meeting with Anna Wintour. Wintour had just responded to his latest work for the magazine by asking, "Where is the glamour? I mean, please, it's Vogue."

Despite (or because of) her sharp critiques, Enninful credits Wintour with introducing him to a lighter side of fashion. In a recent interview with One Management's Christopher Michael for, he says: "With Anna, I learned that fashion can be fun and it didn’t have to be dark, fashion could be all these things and still have an edge, and still be a business.”

The model-obsessed stylist, who has been working in the industry since his days at i-D in the late 1980s, also weighed in on fashion's current fixation on girls with curves: "I’m all up for healthy beautiful women, you know. Cindy, Naomi…they were 8’s, 10’s … They were amazing women, they were not stick thin insects. So, for me I hope this carries on and I know that most magazines are really happy that we now have just beautiful women. It’s definitely a step in the right direction."
