Anna Wintour, is the English editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. In 2013, she became artistic director for Condé Nast, Vogue's publisher. With her trademark pageboy bob haircut and dark sunglasses for the last 25 years, Wintour has become one of the most important figures in much of the fashion world, widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname "Nuclear Wintour" But to me, she has always fascinated me, and I have always respected her, and her talent in fashion. I dare say she has even been a role model at times for me when it comes to my work ethic. I would like to extended a very
Happy Birthday to Ms. Anna Wintour on her birthday!!!!
"If you can't be better than your competition just dress better."
"Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself, and yet identifiable for others."
"I usually wear the same dress 20 times. Recycle. It's totally ok. I even recommend it."
"Even if I'm completely unsure, I'll pretend I know exactly what I'm talking about and make a decision."
"Why fit in when you were born to stand out"
" A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off"
"I think everyone should get sacked at least once. It was definitely a good thing for what it taught me."
"The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying. This is America, not Saudi Arabia."
In a sea of women's glossies that purport to be about fashion, but publish earnest articles chronicling the author's quest for self-actualization, Vogue stands apart. The voluminous fashion pages are arty, original, and sophisticated, shot by talented photographers like Annie Leibovitz, Irving Penn, and Steven Meisel. Vogue is my main bible when it comes to inspiring me on the job. Let's just hope whoever ordered her birthday nosh gets it right today!!!!
So Happy Birthday to you Anna Wintour!!! As British Jon would say, She's the Casa du Borghese Patron Saint!
