seen-london

The effortlessly stylish editor of Vogue was created a Dame of the British Empire by her Majesty the Queen; a role she will no doubt make her own. Sporting a pink Chanel suit and her trademark bob for the ceremony, Wintour was made a Dame for her services to fashion and journalism, following in the footsteps of her father, who was a newspaper editor.

Wintour once said that she didn’t think of herself as a powerful person, though her hands-on approach to editing led to her acquiring a formidable persona within the fashion journalism world. There can be no doubt that it is this approach, plus surrounding herself with an excellent team, that has made American Vogue the publication it is today.

Artistic director at Condé Nast and an organiser of the New York Met Gala, so recently in the news, her damehood must surely be the jewel in the crown of such a glittering career. SEEN is fascinated to see what Dame Anna Wintour will do next.
