Part of being a Queen is recognizing your destiny, finding your niche, and striving for your personal best. Along the way, people may get pissed off, but another person’s insecurities and shortcomings never stopped a Queen from reaching her achievements.
To call Anna Wintour the Editor of Vogue Magazine is like saying that the Mona Lisa is a picture. Anna revolutionized fashion culture, determining trends, re evaluating marketability of not just clothing but magazines as well. A nod from Anna to an up and coming designer is like a brand new rapper spitting sixteen on a Jay Z record. Anna’s eye for fashion made some of the great trends, and made today’s well known designers well known. `Anna is almost single handedly responsible for making John Galliano (Christian Dior) into a household name. When Anna wore Chanel, it made Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis want to wear Chanel. Her iconic bob haircut and later signature shades have been echoed thru the years by Diana Ross, Victoria Beckham, and Rihanna. Jeans may owe their current status to Anna Wintour, before Anna, mostly prisoners wore denim jeans, until they graced her very first Vogue Cover.
Anna Wintour’s notorious disposition also led to a former assistant getting rich and famous from a novel she wrote called The Devil Wears Prada, seen in fashion circles as a biography about working with Anna Wintour. She is a strong woman that knows what she wants, and accepts nothing but greatness from those afforded the great opportunity to put her name on their resume. Even Andre Leon Talley, Oprah Winfrey, and Hilary Clinton have been chided by Anna, either for needing to drop a few pounds or from wearing ugly ass pantsuits all the time and expecting to grace Vogue Magazine. Critics yell about Anna’s brazen love for fur apparel, bitchy attitudes, and her appreciation of feminism and beauty, while her mark on the fashion and the publishing world speaks for itself.
All hail the Queen!!!
