68-year-old Wintour has been Vogue magazine’s editor-in-chief since 1988. Through the years, she has built a name for herself and is considered as one of the biggest influencers in the fashion industry.
In 2013, Wintour – who was born in London - was promoted as the artistic director of Conde Nast, which is Vogue ’s publisher.
She is known for her distinct look. Wintour can often be seen with her signature huge sunglasses and her pageboy haircut.
She is also famous for always maintaining an aloof composure in public.
Wintour has made such an impact in the fashion world that being inside her circle is a very big deal. Getting her approval is considered a success for many people in the industry.
With her work ethic and her personality, Wintour is thought of as the inspiration for a character in the movie, The Devil Wears Prada, released in 2006.
The movie featured Meryl Streep where she played a strict and meticulous magazine editor.
