Anna Wintour was born on November 3, 1949. The native Brit became an international fashion icon thanks to her role as editor-in-chief of the highly-influential Vogue magazine.
At the age of 15, Wintour debuted her now signature bob haircut; she later dropped out of high school to become a party of the London party circuit. Years later, Wintour entered the fashion world when she scored a job at Harper's & Queen in London. In 1976, she moved to New York City and took over as fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar.
Wintour has also held positions at Viva, Savvy, New York Magazine, British Vogue and Home and Garden. In 1988, she was named editor-in-chief of Vogue.
Nicknamed "Nuclear Wintour," the editor's icy demeanor reportedly inspired the 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada (which was adapted for the big screen in 2006). Wintour was also the feature of a 2009 documentary, The September Issue.
Wintour -- who serves as a trustee of NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art -- has two children with ex-husband David Shaffer: son Charles and daughter Katherine (known as Bee). She is currently dating businessman Shelby Bryan.
