The Business of Being ANNA; A Profile of Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour; editor-in-chief of American Vogue Magazine since 1988, believed muse for the book/film The Devil Wears Prada, central focus of the documentary The September Issue, fashion icon and visionary extraordinaire. She knows what she wants and does not accept no, making her amongst the most powerful women in America.

Although noted and criticized for her elitist fashion stance regarding the content that graces the pages of Vogue, Anna Wintour also plays a pivotal role in pop culture as well, comparable to the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart.

A prime example of Wintour's reach is the popular global event Fashion's Night Out, which takes place during New York Fashion Week in September. Wintour created this yearly extravaganza in 2009 as a means to promote commerce during the worst of the United States' great economic recession. She teamed up with Mayor Bloomberg and officiated an evening where designers, celebrities, models and fashion editors would participate in one-of-a-kind events in stores open to the public after hours. During its first year, 800 stores participated in New York City alone with 12 more cities around the world following suit. Of course, Anna would not have it any other way, failure is never an option.

Photographed by famed Mario Testino for the April 2011 cover of WSJ. Magazine (above), Anna Wintour is the subject of The Business of Being Anna, an in-depth profile captured by editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman. The issue is to be distributed to newsstands on March 26,2011.


I have yet to meet her, but based on what I know.... j'adore la Wintour.

Sincerely,
Lex
