I love you Anna Wintour

Interview on Powerful Women

Anna Wintour is the daughter of Charles Wintour, former Editor of the Evening Standard. She started her career in 1970, working in the fashion department at Harpers & Queen in London. Six years later, she joined its sister New York publication Harper’s Bazaar as its Fashion Editor. After a stint as Senior Editor at New York magazine, controlling the title’s fashion and lifestyle coverage, Wintour was named Creative Director of American Vogue in 1983. British Vogue hired her back as Editor in Chief for two years. In 1988, she rejoined American Vogue as Editor-in-Chief and in that capacity, has helped raise over $10 million for AIDS charities since 1990.

Like her image, Wintour’s daily regime is legendary. Now based in Manhattan, she wakes up at 5:45am every morning, plays tennis for an hour before being professionally made-up, coiffed and chauffeured to the offices of American Vogue. Though one of New York’s most prolific party throwers, she never stays at any one event for more than the first ten minutes, preferring to be in bed by 10pm.
