We all know Anna Wintour is the queen of Vogue, but other than that what else do we know. We delve into the secret life of British editor in chief of American Vogue.
This one is not much of a secret but when Lauren Weisberger released the bestseller. The Devil Wears Prada. It was no surprise the novel was based on Wintour, known as “Nuclear Wintour” for her frosty unapproachable demeanour. Yes the novel is a fictional tale, but we all love a good novel, with elements of the truth. When Wintour was questioned about the novel she casually commented that Lauren had been her assistant and may have picked up a few things along the way. Let’s be honest who is better to know the truth than her former PA.
We all know her for her signature dark glasses and page-boy bob haircut, which she has been rocking for a few decades now. In fact according to her biographer Jerry Oppenheimer her sunglasses are in fact corrective lenses, as she suffers from a deteriorating eye condition inherited from her father. There was us thinking, she was shielding us from her dark menace.
It’s often assumed, that Wintour is American as she has spent most of her life there, but in actual fact she is a Londoner born and bred and went to school in North London.
Anna Wintour has two children with ex husband David Shaffer. Her children have relatively remained out of the media. Her daughter Bee Shaffer is sometimes seen accompanying her at red carpet events.
Anna is a keen supporters of the Obama’s, in 2012 she fundraised for Obama’s reelection and since then has continued to fund raise, so it’s no surprise she is an avid supporter of Hilary Clinton as well.
