Anna Wintour

Her trademark hairstyle and perma-sunglasses make Anna Wintour unforgettable - regardless of any Hollywood interpretation in The Devil Wears Prada. With a genuine passion for fostering young talent from Christopher Kane to Jonathan Saunders or Kate Bosworth, Anna Wintour grooms and delivers. Her headline nickname "Nuclear Winter" may be a good play on words - but all those who know her respect a priceless perfectionist streak.

• In 2007 French Vogue paid homage to Anna Wintour's iconic status - dressing a model with bob, glasses and even front row poses
• She has raised over $10 million for AIDS charities since 1990
• In 1988 Anna Wintour became editor-in-chief of American Vogue and her deputy, Liz Tilberis, took her old job as Editor of British Vogue
• Her daughter Bee Schaffer is now a style journalist and a regular on the fashion party circuit
• A documentary titled 'The September Issue' directed by RJ Cutler is made chronicling the editor-in-chief and staff footsteps as they create American Vogue's September 2007 issue

"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 to London to find the next Alexander McQueen or John Galliano," Wintour once said.
