About Anna Wintour, OBE

Anna Wintour is the English Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. In 2013, she also became artistic director for Condé Nast, publisher of Vogue. With her trademark pageboy bob haircut and sunglasses, Wintour has become an important figure 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".

Despite her reputation for being aloof, Wintour is a philanthropist. She helped raise money for the Twin Towers fund after the September 11th terror attacks. With the Council of Fashion Designers of America, she also helped create a new fund to encourage and support up-and-coming designers. Each year, she also organizes a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume department, which over the years has brought in some $50 million.

Starting in 2009, Wintour launched her New York City economic stimulus project with the Vogue-sponsored Fashion's Night Out. The annual event, held in different stores across the city in September, lets the general public shop and mingle with some of the elite personalities of the fashion world, including Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger and Wintour herself. Stars, such as Halle Berry and Sarah Jessica Parker, have also turned out for this fashion celebration.
