  • Anna Wintour

    Anna Wintour is a fashion journalist and editor-in-chief of the American ˜Vogue', a monthly fashion and lifestyle magazine. Her journey in fashion journalism began in England when she worked with two British magazines. Her next spell saw her shifting to the US and working in publications like ˜Harper's Bazaar', ˜Viva', ˜New York' and ˜House & Garden'. She went back to England to join the British ˜Vogue' and after a stint of a year or so she was inducted in the magazine's New York wing where she became the editor-in-chief in July 1988. She played an instrumental role in reviving the magazine which was otherwise struggling at that time. She transformed the publication into a more youthful and receptive one focussing on modern perception on style and fashion targeting a far-reaching audience. She was made the artistic director of ˜Condé Nast', the publisher of ˜Vogue'. She is noted for her trademark dark sunglasses and bob haircut and her reputedly standoffish and demanding nature gave her the epithet ˜Nuclear Wintour'. While she is largely acclaimed for supporting young designers, she often faces criticism for using the magazine as a platform to pass on viewpoints of elites regarding beauty and femininity. She has also been attacked by animal rights activists for endorsing fur.
