Nuclear Wintour: The Fashion Godmother!

5 Oct

If you are a fashionista, you should know your fashion history! British born Anna Wintour is known as the godmother of American fashion and the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine. Her career in Fashion Journalism began at two British magazines. She is known for her eye for fashion and her support for young designers. Her demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour” and even an inspiration of a book written by former personal assistant, Lauren Weisberger, roman a’ clef, A devil Wears Prada, which was later made into a successful film starring Meryl Streep and Miranda Priestly.

Her father, Charles Wintour is the editor of London Evening Standard. Anna became interested in fashion as a teenager in which her father consulted her on how to make the newspaper relevant to the youth of era. She has constantly used the channel of magazines to shape the fashion industry but was always subjected to debate on her particular choice of styles and trends such as fur, which was critized by animal activists.

She has an impressive resume’ as a fashion journalist and is respected by many. Her influence extends outside of fashion. She also has her influence in other areas such as persuading Donald Trump to let Marc Jacobs use a ballroom at the Plaza Hotel for a show when Jacobs and his business partner were not financially stable to do so. She has encouraged Christian Dior to hire younger, fresher designers which can cater to the young generation of our era.

Even though there are complaints about her role as a powerful fashion decision maker, it has been dismissed by those who are familiar with how she actually exercises that right. “She’s honest. She tells you what she thinks. Yes is yes and no is no”, said Karl Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer. “She’s not too pushy” agrees Francois-Henri Pinault, chief executive officer of PPR, Gucci’s parent company.

Because of her powerful position, her wardrobe is always subjected to being scrutinized and imitated. It has been said that industry publicists often hear, “Do you want me to go to Anna with this”? Let’s face it, she is a fashion genius and one of the most successful editor-in-chief who has embrased fashion with extreme creativity and was able to share it with the world.

Who’s that lady?  Well she is none other than Miss Tina Turner!!!  Do you remember her infamous dress?  How it shook and moved with every movement she made!

Have you ever tried dressing up as Tina for Halloween, but you failed bought one of the ugliest dresses with a whole lot of frills?  If you haven’t, I sure have and it never turned out to be the greatest costume:(  I felt frills were just not for me until I came across these beauties!  Check out what designers have created for the runway.  A fun and fresh twist on the infamous Tina Turner  dress!
