Anna Wintour — English Editor born on November 03, 1949,

Anna Wintour, OBE is the English editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. In 2013, she became artistic director for Condé Nast, Vogue's publisher. With her trademark pageboy bob haircut and dark sunglasses, Wintour has become an important figure in much of the fashion world, widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname "Nuclear Wintour"... (wikipedia)

I look for strong people. I don't like people who'll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that's reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to 'The Standard.'
To be in 'Vogue' has to mean something. It's an endorsement. It's a validation.
I'm very good at delegating - people work much better when they have a real sense of responsibility. But at the same time, I don't like surprises. I don't pore over every shoot, but I do like to be aware at all times of what's going on.
I wasn't academically successful. And maybe I've spent a lot of my career trying to make up for that.
I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.
