I am excited for today's post! Anna Wintour! A fashion icon that has garnered the respect and awe of Hollywood's most elite! And a glamorous mystery to me. Its' true. I think I know exactly three things about Anna Wintour:
1. She is the Editor-in-Chief for Vogue Magazine.
2. She is the host/chairwoman of the Met Gala (which I will be doing a post on soon!)
3. Oversized sunglasses are part of her signature style!
And that's it! That's all I know about her! But researching this post was eye opening. She is a powerhouse!
With Anna at the helm, the magazine began to shape the fashion industry and has become one of the most prominent and highly regarded people in "fashion, trend setting, and anointing new designers." Her influence in the industry is powerful!
Later, when she began working at Vogue, she adopted Chanel suits and miniskirts. Apparently, she even wore them during her pregnancies (she had 2!) She would unzip the skirt a bit in the back and wear the jacket to cover it up!
Those oversized sunglasses I mentioned earlier? Apparently, they are corrective lenses as her eyesight is starting to deteriorate. She mentioned once in an interview that they have really become her "armor" as they help keep her reactions to a show private.
I have the urge to head on over to Amazon and order books on her just to learn more about her!
Stay tuned, I will be covering the Met Gala in a post coming up!
Thanks for reading and have a great day! See you on Friday! =D
