Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour has been editor in chief of Vogue US since 1988 and is considered the most powerful woman in fashion. She can make or break a designer in an instant and no one in the fashion world succeeds without her approval. She will always have the best seat in the house at every major fashion show and the show will not start until she arrives.
If you haven’t seen The September Issue then go right now to the video store and HIRE IT!!! You will then know what I am talking about when I say Meril Steep portrayed Anna Wintour extremely well in the movie (which was based on the book) The Devil Wears Prada. Everything from her attitude and facial expressions to the perfect hair and big sunglasses was spot on.

As scary as she seems, Anna Wintour has done very well since taking over US Vogue. It is basically considered the best fashion magazine in the world and Wintour works to not just have high fashion in the magazine but also advise affordable options for Middle America. Wintour also does a lot for charities and social issues as well as nurturing young talented designers.

Ps. While you’re at the video store pick up a copy of Valentino: The Last Emperor. It’s about Valentino’s last collection before he retired. Amazing.
