Anna Wintour (1949)

The daughter of the British newspaper, The Evening Standard's editor, Anna Wintour turned to fashion journalism and began working for Harper's & Queen before moving to New York and being engaged at Harper's Bazaar, Viva or Savvy where she disturbed publishers and audiences with her audacious spreads, answering her belief that 'a fashion magazine is about change'. In 1988, she became the editor in chief of the American Vogue, a position she has since held. Anna Wintour has become a celebrity in her own right with her trademark pageboy bob, her inscrutable gaze hidden behind dark sunglasses and her chilly character that earned her the nickname, 'Nuclear Wintour' and led to a caricatured depiction in the novel and film, The Devil Wears Prada. Despite, the public personage she has contributed to create, Anna Wintour is an influential figure who has an eye for trends and emerging designers while she helped revamp the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute and pushed Vogue into an exponential business just like any other global commercial company.
