The 70th anniversary of the fashion queen: Anna Wintour
Anna Wintour has never changed her hairstyle since she was 14, always showing off an elegant and clean look. In her evolution of style she has never hidden her steel character that consecrates her as a fashion first lady crossing the seasons with her head held high. Although always impeccable, he followed some fashionable drifts that made him less perfect and certainly one of us. She loves tennis tournaments and doesn’t like to wear bags, except on rare occasions, and sunglasses, she says, prevent people from knowing what she’s thinking.
It is to her that the character of Amanda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada” is inspired by the fabulous Meryl Streep. Now the editor-in-chief of the magazine, she will continue to impose trends and lay down the law in the fashion system. For his 70 years it is appropriate to say that Anna Wintour is aging in fashion.
“You think this has nothing to do with you, you open your closet and choose, I don’t know, that felted blue sweater, for example, because you want to shout to the world that you take yourself too seriously to take care of what you put on you, but what you don’t know is that that sweater is not simply blue, it is not turquoise, it is not lapisil, it is indeed cerulean, and you are also cheerfully unaware of the fact that in 2002 Oscar De La Renta created a collection of cerulean skirts , and then it was Yves Saint Laurent, if I’m not mistaken, who proposed some cerulean-colored military jackets, and then the cerulean quickly appeared in the collections of eight different designers, after which he gradually arrived in the department stores and eventually it has infiltrated some tragic casual corner where you evidently caught it in the basket of occasions. However that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs, and we are on the verge of a comedian when I think you are convinced that you have made a choice out of the fashion proposals: so, in effect, you wear a sweater that has been selected for you from the person here in the middle of a pile of stuff!”
