Dame Anna Wintour DBE is an established and well-respected name in fashion. She is the editor-in-chief of Vogue and has been since 1988. She also has a reputation in the industry for being ultra-demanding, thus the moniker “Nuclear Wintour.” It has been assumed and believed that the main character in the movie, “The Devil Wears Prada” is based on how she is in real life.
Her fashion style is very classic, she is noted for her signature bob cut and dark sunglasses, and her petite and slim figure, great body measurements which she has maintained over the years. She actually began wearing a bob when she was 14 years old and has kept it ever since. Her glasses are both stylish and functional. The lenses are corrective and Wintour says that her glasses enable her to hide her reaction and to keep a poker face.
It seems that Wintour is a creature of habit. She is up by 6 AM to play tennis for an hour, then goes to hair and makeup, then on to work. She eats a high protein diet at lunch. When she needs to attend parties, she shows up and stays for a bit, she does not linger, then leaves. She always goes to bed by 10:15 PM.
Standing 5’7”, she keeps her 141-pound frame by eating lean meat, staying away from carbohydrates, no fat, and no junk food. Besides, with her busy schedule, she has no time to eat junk food. She only eats 2 high-protein meals and a salad every day.
Her road to success
One thing about Wintour that makes her successful, aside from discipline and dedication, is her use of her time. She does not waste time and does not like to stay idle. When she attends fashion shows, she goes quite early and, instead of waiting idly, she places calls and jots down notes, as her creative juices flow just before a show.
Born in 1949 to then-British journalist Charles Wintour and Eleanor Tregor Baker, she grew up in London. She comes from a line of wealthy and influential British family, with the Duchess of Baronshire, Lady Elizabeth Foster, as her great-great-great grandmother, and Sir Augustus Vere Foster, the last baronet of that name, was a granduncle.
