Fashionista.com did a story on the latest episode of Bloomberg Game Changers that featured none other than Anna Wintour, long-time Editor in Chief of Vogue. The show profiles industry leaders and their journey to the top. La Wintour chooses her appearances carefully, choosing to not appear on the show. People close to Anna Wintour were interviewed instead, including buddy Vera Wang, Wintour’s first assistant Laurie Schechter, and former Vogue publisher Tom Florio.
Check some intriguing tidbits on Anna Wintour:
- She dropped out of high school. (news to me!)
- Wintour’s staff at British Vogue coined the nickname “nuclear Wintour.”
- Laura Schechter says she lost eight pounds in two weeks because of the “constant” work. “She tells you what she wants and she’s not going to tell you how to do it,” Schechter said.
- On her first cover of US Vogue as EIC she paired a $10,000 top with $40 jeans–which was revolutionary at the time.
