You all should have seen the backlash I received last night for posting a comment about this "guest" editor gig on HelloMag's Instagram post.  All I said was, "It's amazing what kind of opportunities you get when being married to a royal!" Laughing I was called "pale and pathetic" and jealous that I didn't get to marry Harry first.  Laughing And I was also told how qualified she was for this including because she is "fluent in Spanish."

I think this would have been much better if the cover was filled with people like the ladies she did the cookbook with. Everyday people quietly doing extraordinary things. I won’t even talk about Jane fricking Fonda.  Thumb down

How are these people game changers? How is she? I mean, I live in Toronto, and my son lives just a few blocks from where she lived, We never heard of her until she hooked up with Harry. There is lots of filming going on in this city all the time, so she was just one of many. I watched Suits after the fact, and thought it was good, but her character wasn't that interesting. The only thing that has made her famous is marrying into Royalty, and that's what getting all this exposure. How is marrying a Prince,  buying expensive clothes, living in an expensive house, going on expensive holidays game-changing? She has changed nothing,  and she can't be bothered to appreciate all the perks she has. And she can't be bothered to do her job properly. Thumb down

None of the people she's associating with would give her the time of day if it wasn't for her husband and his family

I can't even imagine! I skip all the enews, hola/hello, sugary threads because I can't stand how delusional some of her followers are. They will always default to calling people haters, racists, and oh so jealous of her beauty, title, and brains so I don't even bother reading them anymore  Snare

"Fluent in Spanish."   Ha.  I'm from LA, and most people took Spanish in high school because they thought it would be an easy A.  Whether they were Hispanic themselves and had heard it at home, or someone looking to take care of the foreign language requirement for graduation --I have met *very* few people who took multiple years of Spanish who can use any of it.  She's different, though, she's a game-changer.

I also like the DM blurb that she "insisted" on freckles showing in the photographs, wanting the natural, real look.  Um, what about natural hair?

She's trying to collect more A-list BFFs a la Amal so when her and Harry do eventually divorce, she'll have them to cry to since Doria seems to be her only family she's in contact with and she dumps friends who are of no use to her. This woman is so tone deaf. Wearing Gucci to a Smart Works charity?

As far as who should be on the list, they should have all been British based, and surely there's a woman out there with an MD or PhD that did some sort of groundbreaking research on a project? Or a high ranking military woman? A woman who is the first in her family to go to university? Someone who started from humble means and grew a business from the ground up? What about one of the women from the cookbook?

Yup, yup and yup. Meghan has a chance to be really game changing and completely blows it.

Jane Fonda???  WTF??  I don't know if she's being tone deaf as usual or just dumb.

Congrats on 500 posts Aubiette!  Thumb up Star

The guest editor's letter...

Quote
It was in early January, on a cold and blustery London day, that I sat down for a cup of tea with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful. Though we have several mutual friends, our first encounter had been years in the making, the impetus for which was my asking him to support an organisation I strongly believe in called Smart Works.

What evolved over the next hour was a promising pow wow of two like-minded thinkers, who have much in common, including our love of writing. Over a steaming cup of mint tea, we teased through how one can shine light in a world filled with seemingly daily darkness. Lofty? Of course. Worth it? Without question.

Within hours of our meeting’s end, we were already texting one another – philosophising about how to communicate this shared understanding and the lens through which we see the world, how to pivot from a perspective of frustration to one of optimism.

So I asked the question. Actually, I typed and deleted the question several times until I built up the courage to ask the question in question.

“Edward… instead of doing the cover, would you be open to me guest editing your September issue?”

(Mind you, I know how important the September issue is for the fashion industry. I realise the reach, and I see the opportunity to be a part of fashion’s push for something greater, kinder, more impactful. But I am also a little nervous to be boldly asking the editor-in-chief, whom I’d only just met, to take a chance on me.)

I sent the text.



The ellipsis… the “dot dot dot” that inspires the greatest practice of patience in this digital era.

And then it appeared, EE’s reply: “Yes! I would love for you to be my guest editor.”

Sitting on my sofa at home, two dogs nestled across me, I quietly celebrated when the words appeared on my screen.

Within a week, Edward and I were having our regular meetings – discussing goals, ideas, who would feature on the cover, all while I was undergoing a crash course in editorial lingo (“the well”, meaning the inner crux of the book) and acronyms aplenty (“FOB”, which I took a stab at being “front of book”). I was trying to blend in, to keep up with the pace of these seasoned professionals, and to learn as much as I could as quickly as possible.

There were facets I felt were of prime importance to include within this issue – elements that would hopefully set the tone, knowing this issue hits stands in August, just as readers gear up for the September fashion shows, where judgement can become clouded and focus skewed toward the superficial. I had read a book many moons ago called The Four-Chambered Heart, by Anaïs Nin, which had a quote that has always resonated with me: “I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” For this issue, I imagined, why would we swim in the shallow end of the pool when we could go to the deep end? A metaphor for life, as well as for this issue. Let’s be braver. Let’s go a bit deeper.

That’s what Edward and I have aimed to achieve. An issue of both substance and levity. It is, after all, the September issue of British Vogue, and an opportunity to further diversify what that typically represents. Throughout these pages you’ll find Commonwealth designers, ethical and sustainable brands, as well as features with designers not about clothes but about heritage, history and heirloom. You’ll also find a beauty section that puts its energy towards internal beauty, celebrating the power of breathing and meditation, and a favourite workout that urges you to use your heart as much as your core.

As you flip the pages, you’ll find familiar faces and names that I hope you get to know a bit better, a bit more deeply, even. And there are less familiar names that you may want to know, such as the women of Luminary Bakery and Tessa Clarke, co-founder of food-sharing app Olio, whom I met with discreetly last year.

There are inspiring reads from Brené Brown and Jameela Jamil. You’ll also find a very special piece with Dr Jane Goodall, interviewed by my husband, and a candid and heartfelt conversation between myself and the extraordinary Michelle Obama.

But more than anything, this issue is about the power of the collective. In identifying our personal strengths, it is anchored in the knowledge that we are even stronger together. You will find that spirit of inclusivity on the cover: diverse portraiture of women of varying age, colour, creed, nationality and life experience, and of unquestionable inspiration. Some, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and enlisted personally for this issue, others I’ve admired from afar for their commitment to a cause, their fearlessness in breaking barriers, or what they represent simply by being. These are our forces for change. And among all of these strong women on the cover, a mirror – a space for you, the reader, to see yourself. Because you, too, are part of this collective.

There is one caveat for you to remember: this is a magazine. It’s still a business, after all. I share that to manage expectations for you: there will be advertising sections that are requisite for every issue, so while I feel confident that you’ll feel my thumbprint on most pages, please know that there are elements that just come with the territory. The overall sentiment I hope you’ll find, however, will be one of positivity, kindness, humour and inclusivity.

I was about five months pregnant when this process began, and by the time you hold this issue in your hands, my husband and I will be holding our three-month-old baby boy in ours. It’s a very special time for me personally, on so many levels; working with Edward and his team, both during my pregnancy and my maternity leave, has played no small part in that joy – it has been a privilege to be welcomed and supported by this amazing team. To Edward, thank you for entrusting me with this. I am deeply honoured. To the women who have taken my aspirations for this issue and brought them to life by being a part of this time capsule, both on the cover and in-book, I am so grateful; you are inspirations to me and I’m humbled by your support.

And to you, the reader, thank you – and I hope you enjoy...

What is the average age of the British Vogue reader? I mean, Jane Fonda? Most people under the age of 50 (sorry ladies!) will know of her from her workout videos, or some of her movies. And anyone over that age is either not buying this magazine or loathes her to this day for that stunt she pulled in Vietnam. Most under 30 will have never heard of her. Is she the token older woman in this tableau?

What stunt did she pull in Vietnam?
