Biography

The most famous and powerful person in fashion, Anna Wintour rose through the publishing ranks to become editor-in-chief of American Vogue. While her imperious, reserved manner, bobbed hair and omnipresent sunglasses added to her legendary reputation as a terrifying and mysterious figure, Wintour was universally recognized for her talent and iron-fisted leadership. Her near-mythic reputation was tweaked when her former assistant, Lauren Weisberger, penned the best-selling roman à clef The Devil Wears Prada, which became a 2006 global blockbuster starring Meryl Streep, who earned an Oscar nomination for her sympathetic, hilarious turn as the Wintour-inspired Miranda Priestly. The "devil" came out angelically, however, with the film and the documentary "The September Issue" (2009), adding to the world's fascination with Wintour and increasing her celebrity exponentially. Feared, famous and ferociously admired, Anna Wintour achieved iconic status as arguably one of the most glamorous household names of all time.
