Anna Wintour biography (bio):
Anna Wintour is the editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. She became interested in fashion as a teenager. Her father, Charles, editor of the Evening Standard, often consulted with her on how to make the newspaper's coverage relevant to the youth of mid-1960s London. After dropping out of school at 16, she began a career in fashion journalism. Her career took her across the Atlantic, with notable stints at New York and Home & Garden. She returned home for a tumultous year to turn around British Vogue, and later assumed control of the franchise's flagship magazine in New York. She revived a stagnant publication, a success that has earned her wide acclaim in the industry.
Like one of her predecessors, Diana Vreeland, she has become a fashion icon. Her pageboy bob haircut and sunglasses have become a common sight in the front row of the most exclusive fashion shows. Away from the cameras, she has become as much an institution in the fashion world as her magazine. Universally hailed for her keen eye for fashion trends and support for younger designers, her aloof and demanding persona has earned her the nickname "Nuclear Wintour". A former personal assistant, Lauren Weisberger, wrote the 2003 bestselling roman clef The Devil Wears Prada, later made into a successful film starring Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly, a fashion editor widely believed to be based on Wintour. She has also drawn both praise and criticism for her willingness to use the magazine and its cachet to shape the industry as a whole. Animal rights activists have also singled her out for her continued promotion of fur.

Family:
Her father, Charles Vere Wintour, CBE, was an editor of The Evening Standard; her mother was his first wife, Eleanor ("Nonie") Trego Baker, the daughter of a Harvard law professor, whom he married in 1940 and divorced in 1979. She was named after her maternal grandmother, Anna (Gilkyson) Baker, a Philadelphia socialite. Her stepmother is Audrey Slaughter, a magazine editor who founded such British publications as Honey and Petticoat.
Wintour had four siblings: James Charles, the managing director of Gravesham Borough Council; Nora Hilary Wintour, the deputy general secretary of Public Services International in Geneva, Switzerland and Patrick Wintour, who started as labor correspondent at The Guardian in 1983 and rose to become the political editor first for the The Observer and then in 2006 The Guardian. Her eldest brother, Gerald Jackson Wintour, died as a child in 1951 when he was struck by a car while bicycling to school.

Early life:
The young Wintour was educated at North London Collegiate School, where she frequently rebelled against the dress code by taking up her skirts. At the age of 14 she began wearing her hair in the bob that has since become her trademark. As London began to swing, she became a dedicated follower of fashion as a regular viewer of Cathy McGowan on Ready Steady Go!, and her father regularly consulted her when he was considering ideas for increasing readership in the youth market.
She began an early pattern of dating well-connected older men. At 15, she was involved briefly with Piers Paul Read, then 24. In her later teens, she began dating gossip columnist Nigel Dempster and became a fixture on the London club circuit with him. "She would go to the opening of an envelope", joked a friend.

Career:
From fashion to journalism:
Charles Wintour arranged his daughter's first job, at the influential Biba boutique, when she was 15. The next year, she dropped out of North London Collegiate. Wintour chose not to go to college but instead entered a training program at Harrods. At her parents' behest, she also took some fashion classes at a nearby school, but soon dropped out, saying "you either know fashion or you don't". She continued dating well-connected older men, this time Peter Gitterman, the stepson of London Philharmonic Orchestra conductor Georg Solti. Another boyfriend, Richard Neville, gave her her first look at magazine production when she hung around the offices of his popular and controversial Oz.
She entered the field of fashion journalism in 1970 when Harper's Bazaar merged with Queen to become Harper's & Queen, and the new magazine needed editorial assistants. While there, she let it be known to her coworkers she ultimately wanted to edit Vogue. She discovered model Annabel Hodin, a former North London classmate, and used the connections she had built up to secure locations for some striking, innovative shoots, often shot by Helmut Newton and other trend-setting photographers. One shoot recreated the works of Renoir and Manet using models in go-go boots. She left the magazine in 1975 after chronic disagreements with new editor Min Hogg, whose job Anna herself had vied for, and relocated to New York with yet another older boyfriend, freelance journalist and playboy Jon Bradshaw.

Personal life:
She has two children by Shaffer, Charles (Charlie) and Katherine (known as Bee), who blogs for the Daily Telegraph. The couple divorced in 1999; tabloid newspapers and gossip columnists speculated that it was an affair with millionaire investor Shelby Bryan that ended the marriage, but Wintour has refused to comment. She maintains an ongoing relationship with Bryan that friends say has mellowed her. "She smiles now and has been seen to laugh," the Observer quoted one as saying.
Wintour is also a noted philanthropist. She serves as a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Wintour began the CFDA/Vogue Fund in order to encourage, support and mentor unknown fashion designers. She has also raised over $10 million for AIDS charities since 1990, by organizing various high profile benefits.
She rises daily before 6 a.m., plays tennis and has her hair and makeup done, then gets to Vogue's offices at 8. She always arrives at fashion shows at their scheduled starting time. "I use the waiting time to make phone calls and notes; I get some of my best ideas at the shows," she says. According to the BBC documentary Boss Woman, she is similarly efficient with her time elsewhere in her day, rarely staying at parties for more than 20 minutes at a time and getting to bed by 10:15 every night.
Her control over the magazine, particularly her strong suit, photo layouts, has long been industry legend. She has since her first days as editor required that photographers not begin until she has approved Polaroids of the setup and clothing. Afterwards, they must submit all their work to the magazine, not just their personal choices. But her control over the text is less certain. Her staffers swear she reads everything written for publication, but former editor Richard Storey has claimed she rarely, if ever, read any of Vogue's arts coverage or book reviews. Similarly, in younger days she often left the task of writing the text accompanying her layouts to others, since, many of those who did say, she has minimal skills in that area. Today she writes little for the magazine save the monthly editor's letter. She reportedly has three full-time assistants but sometimes surprises callers by answering the phone herself. She often turns her cell phone off in order to eat lunch uninterrupted, and likes to have a good steak for her midday meal. Others who have known her likewise report that high-protein meals have been a habit of hers for a long time. "It was smoked salmon and scrambled eggs every single day" for lunch, says a coworker at Harpers & Queen. "She would eat nothing else".
