I know Edward Enniful adores her, but I’ll admit I was a little taken aback to see her make British Vogue’s “Vogue 25: the women shaping 2019”.

Even despite my distant friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend ‘relationship’ to her (trust me when I say it’s nothing to get excited over lol), and the fact I’ve kinda followed her career from the very beginning, I really wouldn’t consider her one of the major models in fashion right now. Maybe the major British model? And that was what they were highlighting? But to me she’s nothing extraordinary and I can’t see her longevity lasting in a way that Kate Moss and Jean Shrimpton (whom she has been quite generously compared to) have done. Of course I’m happy for her— but I’d be lying if I said she didn’t seem out of place amongst the activists, politicians and industry icons on that list.
