Absolutely no one in the history of American fashion as well as international fashion has possessed quite the influence or power of Anna Wintour. Editor-in-chief of the fashion journalism giant Vogue, Wintour is responsible for being the igniting force behind many presently famous designers today. For a woman inundated daily by all things fashion and glamour, she herself has maintained a consistent and conservative image. With her blond pageboy bob and her ubiquitous dark large sunglasses, she is a constant fixture in all of the fashion shows and fashion weeks that occur around the world. Seen by some as an "ice queen", others respect Anna Wintour's continuous rational, objective, and driven nature which has obviously produced the great fruits of Vogue Magazine we see today. We've got some of the best Anna Wintour quotes lined up today in homage to the woman whose raison d'etre has inspired a generation of fashion enthusiasts and fostered creativity.
“This is why New York has become the most relevant fashion capital in the world. Because we respect not only the established designers but also the up-and-coming ones like Peter.”
“People constantly make the mistake of comparing London with New York, Milan and Paris and that's not what it's about. London has its own fashion identity. You come here to find the next Alexander McQueen or John Galliano.”
"I'm an ice queen, I’m the Sun King, I’m an alien fleeing from District 9 and I’m a dominatrix. So I reckon that makes me a lukewarm royalty with a whip from outer space."
"You either know fashion or you don't."
"If you look at any great fashion photograph out of context, it will tell you just as much about what's going on in the world as a headline in The New York Times."
