Anna Wintour : Behind The Shades
This is compelling viewing! Watch her first lengthy TV interview (for 60 Minutes) here. Then check out the Out takes especially the fabulous accessory closet here!)
“She is said to be the most powerful woman in fashion and she does nothing to dispel that belief. Her name is Anna Wintour, a name that strikes terror in some, loathing in others, and transforms yet others into obsequious toadies.
It should also be said she commands a loyal band of friends and admirers. Nevertheless, she was the inspiration for the novel and movie “The Devil Wears Prada.”
For 21 years, this divorced mother of two has been editor of Vogue, the last word in sophisticated fashion and fantasy.
The aura of mystery that surrounds the 59-year-old Wintour is palpable. She is a paparazzi and gossip column magnet. Every twitch, every frown, every suppressed smile is recorded.
She’s been portrayed as Darth Vader in a frock, or less harshly, as “Nuclear Wintour.” Or is she really just peaches and cream, with a touch of arsenic?”.
