Anna Wintour is a British-American fashion journalist and editor-in-chief of American ‘Vogue,’ a monthly fashion and lifestyle magazine. Her journey in fashion journalism began in England when she worked with two British magazines. She then moved to the US and worked in publications like ‘Harper's Bazaar,’ ‘Viva,’ ‘New York,’ and ‘House & Garden.’ She went back to England to join the British ‘Vogue.’ She then joined 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 struggling at that time. She transformed the publication into a more youthful and receptive magazine, focusing on modern perception on style and fashion. She was made the artistic director of ‘Condé Nast,’ the publisher of ‘Vogue.’ She is noted for her trademark dark sunglasses and bob haircut. Her reputedly stand-offish 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 the viewpoints of the elite society regarding beauty and femininity. She has also been criticized by animal rights activists for endorsing fur.

Anna Wintour and Kim Kardashian have seemed to swap signature looks — the bob for the peace sign.
“The Kardashians” star took to Instagram Tuesday to share a series of selfies of her and the Vogue Editor-in-Chief with matching, shoulder length bobs while holding up peace signs.
“BOBBSEY TWINS,” the “Skims” founder captioned the photos, referencing the old children’s novels.
While Kardashian opted for a platinum blonde look, Wintour adorned her iconic bob and bangs with a signature pair of black sunglasses.
Fans were quick to comment on the moment between the two leading ladies of fashion.

This week, Anna Wintour and Baz Luhrmann hosted an intimate screening of Luhrmann’s new film Elvis, starring Austin Butler. In attendance at the DGA theater in Midtown Manhattan were Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Alton Mason, Vera Wang, and Victor Glemaud, among others. It was a big week for performers....
“I would like to thank you for making time for us tonight,” said Anna Wintour, addressing Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin at last night’s Manhattan screening of Elvis. Between them, the husband-and-wife duo claim a lengthy list of credits on the film, which offers a whistle-stop romp through the life of the king of rock and roll: He’s the director and co-writer, she’s the costume and production designer, both are producers. And since the film’s debut at Cannes last month (which earned it a 12-minute ovation), the pair, along with their cast, have been on a whirlwind promotional tour. “Baz, if this audience knew your mind-blowing travel schedule over the past few months, they would either think you’d missed your life calling as a Qantas pilot or that you were suffering from a severe sleep disorder.”
Keith McNally popped off on a fan who accused the restaurateur of being a “star-f–k” for cozying up to pal Anna Wintour.
McNally, 70, posted a photo to Instagram of himself and Wintour, 72, having breakfast Thursday at his famed Soho restaurant, Balthazar.
In an effort to be tongue-in-cheek, he wrote, “As usual, the bastard wanted something. For the umpteenth time, Anna begged me to be on the cover of Vogue magazine. I told her again and again: No F–king Way!”
One fan, however, took exception to the post.
They commented that McNally is “much more admirable when you don’t starf–k” before dismissing his...
Congrats are in order for Britney and her beau. Spears and Sam Asghari said I Do yesterday at their Thousand Oaks home, with the pop star wearing a custom strapless white gown by Versace for the momentous occasion. Speaking of! Donatella was in town to celebrate, as were Madonna, Paris and Kathy Hilton, Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, and will.i.am. Spears told Vogue: “We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends,” Britney tells Vogue. “We wanted warm and feminine colours including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds.” Meanwhile, Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury were responsible for the glam. “Britney is an icon of our time who has inspired and empowered us all with her joy and positive energy. She’s such a natural beauty and has the most mesmerizing big, brown eyes,” the makeup guru said. After the ceremony, came three more custom Versace looks—but the true pièce de résistance came thanks to Gomez, Madonna, and Spears dancing together to Toxic, followed by Hilton and Spears singing Stars Are Blind. Iconique!

When Amy Odell began working on a biography of Anna Wintour in 2018, she had no idea if the enigmatic Vogue editor in chief would sanction the book or use her considerable powers to shut the project down. “About a year and a half into my research, her office got wind of the book, and Anna approved a list of people for me to talk to,” says Odell. After she ran through that list, Odell sent more names to be approved. “She said yes to every single person,” says Odell. She ended up interviewing more than 250 sources for the book, many who had never gone on the record about Wintour before.
