There is no denying that Anna Wintour is a fabled vogue icon. Though she has landed on the world stage by her many roles—she is editor-in-chief of Vogue, world chief content material officer of Condé Nast, co-chair of the Met Gala, and the unstated chief of the style universe—there’s surprisingly little recognized about her. Properly, apart from her iconic bob and Chanel sun shades.
Past the occasional whisper or tabloid unfold, her rise from London woman to mercurial editor-in-chief has gone largely uncharted—till now. Within the new biography Anna, journalist Amy Odell explores Wintour’s journey by the publishing ranks, highlighting how she constructed an empire that modified vogue media perpetually—and did all of it earlier than the age of 40.
