Anna Wintour Vogue Page 1
There’s a tantalizing little nugget of information buried in an AdWeek piece on sales of ad pages for this year’s round of September issues. Turns out Anna Wintour and company are getting ready to debut another website.
There’s no arguing with the fact that American Vogue is one of the most influential brands in fashion. So when we read that the magazine had established a nationwide network of influencers to represent its readers to Vogue advertisers, we thought it would be composed legitimately influential people. We were wrong.
Spokespeople at American Vogue have flat-out denied that Anna Wintour is working on a memoir, but that hasn’t stopped speculation that the devil who wears Prada is putting her life story on paper.
We don’t generally believe in unnamed sources, but a person in the know has just shed light on what’s supposed to be one of the best-kept secrets in the fashion magazine business. According to our source, supermodel Kate Moss is going to be on the all-important September cover of Vogue.
If Anna Wintour can influence some of the world’s most powerful businessmen, can she sway a handful of New York state senators? Late yesterday, the Vogue editor-in-chief released a video expressing her support for legalizing same-sex marriage in New York.
There’s no point, really, in beating around the bush when it comes to Anna Wintour. So in its recent profile of the Vogue editor-in-chief, fashion decider and all around woman of power, WSJ. magazine went straight to the point — her power. The pulchritudinous golden scepter of influence she wields is large and heavy and often requires its own seat on planes. But the reason Wintour has it in the first place is because she’s forward thinking, has a network of other influential people (including the ones who sign her checks) at her beck and call and is exceptionally good at branding. And she works really, really hard.
