The rumors began with a Page Six article that according to multiple sources, Wintour was going to exit her role this summer after her daughter’s wedding in July. The article also speculated over who would be the successor to her position would be, what she plans to do next and who is pushing her to leave.
The article speculated that Edward Enninful, the editor of Vogue UK, would have been a likely replacement for Wintour’s spot at Vogue. However, there was no speculation on who would take her position as Condé Nast’s artistic director or if the position would even be continued after her exit.
