If you are into fashion then you will undoubtedly know Anna Wintour as a hostile fashion badass.
If not, then you might recognise her by her large bug-like sunglasses.
Wintour is hardly ever seen without her sunglasses and even wore them when she met her royal highness, the Queen.
Now that is confidence, or bad manners, depending on how you see it.
But why does the soon to be 70-year-old always feel the need to wear her sunglasses?
CNN’s Chief International Anchor Christiane Amanpour recently interviewed Anna Wintour in New York and found out why she’s always sporting shades.
“They help me when I’m feeling a bit tired or sleepy.
Worn throughout the entire interview, her eyewear is, she said, “incredibly useful because you avoid people knowing what you’re thinking about.”And maybe they’ve just become a crutch in part of who I am. But today I really did need them.”
During her career, she has been portrayed as unfriendly and was apparently the muse behind the film and book, The Devil Wears Prada.
Then again that could just be the industry talking. Wintour is a powerful woman in a space that’s still largely dominated by men – and she’s killing it.
“If you go back to when I was a young girl growing up in Britain, and (when) I went for my first job, it was considered a great thing if we reached an audience of 90,000 people with a monthly magazine. Now we have, I believe, 22 million followers on Instagram alone at Vogue US. So we are talking to men and women all over the world … in so many different ways (and) in a way that we couldn’t possibly have imagined even 10 years ago, 15 years ago.”
Rumours that Wintour might be leaving the industry have been denied.
We’ve just lost Karl Lagerfeld, we can’t lose her too.
Whichever way you see her, there is no denying that she is a woman of great style who actively supports strong female leaders.
She’s a force to be reckoned with.
