In our Fall 2012, The Role Model Issue, Edward Enninful and Emma Summerton explore the theme of ‘role models’ with Jourdan Dunn, Candice Huffine, Iselin Steiro and Aymeline Valade. Speaking in The Role Model Issue, Edward explains, “An inspirational man or woman is anyone who has achieved the right balance between their personal and professional lives. My role models are the two Graces – Grace Enninful and Grace Coddington. Both taught me about excellence, commitment, dedication and striving for only the best.” As he explored this notion in a shoot inspired by the utterly inspirational Dolly Parton, Edward collaborates with longtime i-D photographer, Emma Summerton, i-D online regulars Kloss London were on hand to get inside track behind-the-scenes with the four ‘blonde’ bombshells.

“A role model knows how to combine refinement, grace and manners without losing composure.” Aymeline Valade
“I’m inspired by people who stay true to their beliefs and those who always try to give something back to the world.” Iselin Steiro
“My role model will always be my mother. Her strength and courage inspires me to be a better woman and mother.” Jourdan Dunn
“To me elegance is an attitude. A head held high. Confident and kind. Chic in a way that doesn’t just describe someone’s look.” Candice Huffine
