Anna Wintour

I can't imagine Vogue without Anna Wintour, perhaps because she has been the editor since I was 14.  When an old co-worker of mine left to become one of her infamous assistants, we looked at her
with concern and asked, "you have read the book, haven't you?", of course, referring to The Devil Wears Prada.  But truth be told, I'm intrigued by the likes of Anna and Martha and always want to know what makes them tick.  Thus, I enjoyed this article about Anna's influence on fashion.

So true...Anna and Martha are interesting people. I don't really think I would want to work for them though!

She's one of those people who fascinates me in many ways, but in some ways repels me. Yet, if she were a man, would such a novel have been written? Not sure. It seems that strong, powerful women often get labled the "B" word. Unfair. No one can argue her influence on the fashion world. It is iconic.

Great article. Wouldn't it be interesting to be a fly on the wall in her office!
