Anna Wintour was born on November 2, 1949 in London. Chief Editor of the American edition of Vogue , held the post since 1988, where he has since come to be in a real fashion icon and one of the most influential people in the industry.

His father, Charles Vere Wintour, former editor of the British newspaper "The Evening Standart". His mother was the first wife of Charles Wintour, Eleanor ("Nonie") Trego Baker, daughter of a Harvard law professor. They were married thirty-nine years. His stepmother is Audrey Slaughter, editor of magazines such as Honey and Petticoat among others. Anna has four siblings, who are engaged in occupations that have nothing to do with the fashion world. Her daughter graduated from Columbia and said not to be as editor of Vogue, and in the fashion world. Now Fanny Wintour Valley (named in the scene), inevitably is a fashion icon. It also has a son, Charles Sheffer.

Anna Wintour attended the Collegiate School North. He began to comb his hair style "bob" at age fourteen, when it was not even a. He left school at 16, and I choose not to go to college so he started a course at the London department store Harrods. For orders of their parents took fashion classes at a nearby school, but left quickly. Ana said, "or you know fashion or not."

Activity fashion journalism in 1970 when Harper's Bazaar merged with Queen magazine, to become for a time in Harper's & Queen. There Anna, made great innovative work, recreating works by Renoir and Manet with models with go-go boots. After a brief job at a small magazine called Savvy, in 1975, Anna worked as a fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar in New York, where he was less than a year. Later, he went to New York magazine as fashion editor. He became editor of British Vogue in 1986 and a year later editor of House & Garden.

Anna finally got the position of Managing Editor of Vogue U.S. in 1988. Under his predecessor, Grace Mirabella, Wintour left his mark instantly with a change in the cover photographs. He used models and mixed unfamiliar face couture clothing. Also request that photographers, makeup artists and stylists appeared in the credits of the pictures as the models. Under his leadership, the magazine renewed its focus on fashion and resurfaced as when its director was DianaVrreland .

The September 2007 issue contained the record of 832 printed pages, the greater number of leaves that had been done before. This number is made the documentary "The September Issue". Development also creating three alternative publications to his magazine: Teen Vogue, Vogue Living and Men's Vogue. His success in expanding the Vogue brand earned him the title of Editor of the Year by AdAge magazine.

Anna Wintour has become one of the world's most powerful people in fashion, setting trends and consecrating new designers like John Galliano and Marc Jacobs. His salary is estimated at five million dollars a year.

Despite his reputation for cold woman. Anna is an active philanthropy. It trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Founded CFDA / Vogue, to encourage and support unknown designers. He has also raised more than $ 10 million to organizations that help AIDS patients by organizing fundraising events.

In 2003 his assistant, Lauren Weisberger novel published his successful key ("roman à clef") The Devil Wear Prada. That according to Miranda Priestley say his antagonist in the film, was based on Anna. Anna said that the movie that had seemed quite entertaining and praised her for making fashion "entertaining and glamorous and interesting."

Some critics have accused because celebrities and models are the cover of Vogue. In fact, several famous women have occupied the cover of Vogue under the direction of Anna, from Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Blake Lively or the very Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama last year.

Rarely, if ever made, Anna responds to criticism against it, because most of his critics have been employees or people who have something to gain from being on good terms with her. But there have been defenses elsewhere, Amanda Fortini, in Slate magazine, said she had no problem with the elitism of Ana, because this was intrinsic to fashion and ultimately good for the readers of the magazine. This conclusion is entirely true, since Anna has to defend the reputation of a brand. Always Vogue Vogue but much of the style, elegance and splendor has given Anna.

This year it has been named artistic director of Condé Nast. Anna should extend and develop a "creative vision" for Condé Nast (Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Glamour ...).

Anna Wintour, a large female model, multifaceted, visionary, independent, generous and with a great sense of "know-how".

Anna Wintour nació el 2 de Noviembre de 1949 en Londres. Editora jefe de la edición norteamericana de la revista Vogue, ocupa el puesto desde 1988, donde ha llegado a convertirse desde entonces en un autentico icono de la moda y una de las personas mas influyentes de la industria.

Su padre, Charles Vere Wintour , fue editor del periódico británico "The Evening Standart". Su madre fue la primera esposa de Charles Wintour, Eleanor ("Nonie") Trego Baker, hija de un profesor de derecho de Harvard. Estuvieron casados treinta y nueve años. Su madrastra es Audrey Slaughter, editora de revistas como Honey y Petticoat entre otras. Anna tiene cuatro hermanos, los cuales se dedican a profesiones que no tienen nada que ver con el mundo de la moda. Su hija se graduó en Columbia y dijo no verse como editora de Vogue, ni en el mundo de la moda. Ahora Fanny del Valle Wintour (llamada así en el mundillo), inevitablemente es un icono de moda. También tiene un hijo, Charles Sheffer.

Anna Wintour estudió en el North Collegiate School. Comenzó a peinar su cabello estilo "bob" a los catorce años, cuando ni siquiera era un it. Abandonó la escuela a los 16 años, y opto por no ingresar a la universidad por lo que comenzó un curso en la tienda departamental londinense Harrods. Por ordenes de sus padres tomo clases de moda en una escuela cercana, pero la dejó rápidamente. Ana dijo que "o sabes de moda o no". 

Entro al periodismo de moda en 1970 cuando la revista Harper´s Bazaar se fusionó con la revista Queen,  para convertirse durante un tiempo en Harper´s & Queen . Ahí Anna, hizo grandes e innovadores trabajos, recreando trabajos de Renoir y Manet con modelos con botas de go-go. Después de un breve trabajo en una pequeña revista llamada Savvy , en 1975, Anna trabajó como editora de moda en Harper´s Bazaar  en Nueva York, donde estuvo menos de un año. Mas tarde, fue a la revista New York, como editora de moda. Se convirtió en editora de la revista Vogue británica en 1986 y un año mas tarde editora de la revista House & Garden.

Anna finalmente obtuvo el puesto de Editora general de Vogue USA en 1988. Bajo su predecesora, Grace Mirabella , Wintour dejo su marca instantáneamente con un cambio en las fotografías de portada. Usó a modelos poco conocidas y mezclaba ropa cara con alta costura. También se encargo de que los fotógrafos, maquilladores y estilistas aparecieran en los créditos de las imágenes como las modelos. Bajo su mando, la revista renovó su enfoque en la moda y volvió a resurgir como cuando su directora era DianaVrreland

El número de Septiembre de 2007 contenía el record de 832 paginas impresas, mayor numero de hojas que se había realizado nunca. De este número se realizó el documental "The September Issue". También desarrollo la creación de tres publicaciones alternas a su revista: Teen Vogue, Vogue Living y Men´s Vogue. Su éxito por expandir la marca de Vogue le valió el titulo de editora del año por la revista AdAge.

Anna Wintour se ha convertido en una de las personas mas poderosas del mundo de la moda, estableciendo tendencias y consagrando a nuevos diseñadores como John Galliano o Marc Jacobs . Su salario estimado es de cinco millones de dólares al año. A pesar de su fama de mujer fría. Anna es una activa filantropa. Es fiduciaria del Museo Metropolitano de Arte de Nueva York. Fundó CFDA/Vogue, para alentar y apoyar a diseñadores desconocidos. También ha reunido mas de 10 millones de dolares para asociaciones que ayudan a los enfermos de sida, organizando eventos benéficos. En 2003 su asistente, Lauren Weisberger publicó su exitosa novela en clave ("roman à clef")The Devil Wear Prada. Que según dicen su antagonista Miranda Priestley en el film, estaba basada en Anna. Anna dijo que la pelicula que le habia parecido bastante entretenida y la alabó por hacer de la moda "entretenida, glamurosa e interesante".

Algunas críticas la han acusado debido a que las celebridades y no las modelos son la portada de Vogue . En efecto, varias mujeres famosas han ocupado la portada de Vogue bajo la dirección de Anna, desde Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Blake Lively o las mismísimas Hillary Clinton o en este último año Michelle Obama. 

Raramente, si alguna vez lo ha hecho, Anna responde a las críticas contra ella, debido a que la mayoría de sus críticos han sido sus empleados o personas que tienen algo que ganar estando en buenos términos con ella. Pero ha habido defensas de otras partes, Amanda Fortini, en la revista digital Slate, dijo que ella no tenia problemas con el elitismo de Ana, ya que este era intrínseco a la moda y a final de cuentas bueno para los lectores de la revista. Esta conclusión es totalmente cierta, ya que Anna tiene que defender el prestigio de una marca.

Vogue siempre será Vogue pero gran parte del estilo, elegancia y esplendor se lo ha dado Anna. Este año la han nombrado directora artística de Condé Nast. Anna deberá extender y desarrollar una "vision creativa" para Condé Nast (Vogue,The New Yorker,Vanity Fair,Glamour...). Townseud (chief executive officer Condé Nast) ha reconocido que "se aprovechará la increíble visión y liderazgo de Anna". Ha aparecido en documentales como "The Semptember Issue" o "In Vogue", además de "The editor´s Eye", aun pendiente de estreno.
