Venetia Scott was named fashion editor of British Vogue, as part of Edward Enninful's first appointment as incoming Editor-in-Chief. The stylist and photographer will replace Lucinda Chambers, who resigned in May after 36 years at Vogue. Who is Venetia Scott? Her name may seem familiar to many, for she has worked both as a stylist and photographer with a very particular vision, for magazines from Vogue Italia to i-D...

Scott started her career at British Vogue as Grace Coddington's assistant, where she knew she wanted to work at since she was 13 -- funny how life comes full circle sometimes. It is here that she developed a distinctive eye, one that is cinematic and stark and focuses on dressing characters for a narrative, working with photographers from Juergen Teller to Mario Sorrenti. Her styling career continued with work for i-D and the British and Italian editions of Vogue. In 1997 she began consulting for Marc Jacobs, becoming creative director in 2001, responsible for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Line. Voilà how the antidote to super-slick and glossy images became commercialised.

She became a photographer in 2005, her aesthetic appealing to niche magazines like AnOther Mag and Self Service, and large-scale publications including W Magazine and Vogue. Becoming fashion editor at British Vogue is likely to be a game-changer for the magazine -- many call it a much-needed shake-up -- so all that is left is to wait for the September and October issues to see just how much of Scott's aesthetic will filter down to Vogue's pages. -- Victoria.

“Integrity? It’s about being true to yourself in the MOMENT, and taking the time to work out what that truth is. I don’t think it’s about having to stick to ONE thing.”

Fashion Contributor, London

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
