There’s no denying that Anna Wintour is a fabled fashion icon. Although she has landed on the world stage through her many roles—she is editor-in-chief of Vogue, global chief content officer of Condé Nast, co-chair of the Met Gala, and the unspoken leader of the fashion universe—there’s surprisingly little known about her. Well, aside from her iconic bob and Chanel sunglasses.
Beyond the occasional whisper or tabloid spread, her rise from London girl to mercurial editor-in-chief has gone mostly uncharted—until now. In the new biography Anna, journalist Amy Odell explores Wintour’s journey through the publishing ranks, highlighting how she built an empire that changed fashion media forever—and did it all before the age of 40.
