On the first day of the 70th annual Cannes International Film Festival, when the entire fashion world is a buzz with anticipation and excitement for red carpet fashion and style at its finest, comes the news that Vogue UK Fashion editor Lucinda Chambers is to step down from the role after 36 years.

This comes hot on the heals of the recent news and announcement of the departure of its long time Editor in Chief Vogue Alexandra Shulman, that being followed up last month with the appointment of a man for the first time as the Fashion Bible’s Chief Editor, in the guise of Edward Enninful.
It’s all shaking up at the House of Vogue UK.
