Transcript of Anna Wintour
Who is Anna Wintour?
A Vogue Editor
Born November 3, 1949 in London, England. (now age 63)
"I want Vogue to be pacy, sharp, and sexy, I'm not interested in the super-rich or infinitely leisured. I want our readers to be energetic, executive women, with money of their own and a wide range of interests...There is a new kind of woman out there. She's interested in business and money. She doesn't have time to shop anymore. She wants to know what and why and where and how."

Wintour appears unfazed by criticism about her in the media, but what doesn't seem to get much mention is her charitable work.

Every year, she also organizes a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume department, which has brought in some $50 million over the years.
Anna Wintour became a force in the fashion world, not only through her decisions about what to feature in her magazine, but also by breaking in newer designers and celebrating their styles.
“You either know fashion or you don’t.”
“Create your own style…
let it be unique for yourself
and yet identifiable for others.”
“Fashion is not beautiful, neither is it ugly.
Why should it be either? Fashion is Fashion”
“Fashion’s not about looking back.
It’s always about looking forward.”
“There is something about fashion that can make people really nervous.”
“[The democratization of luxury] means more people are going to get better fashion. And the more people who can have fashion, the better.”
“Just be true to yourself, and listen as much as one is able to to other people whose opinions you respect and look up to but in the end it has to come from you. You can’t really worry too much by looking to the left and the right about what the competition is doing or what other people in your field are doing. It has to be a true vision.”
