Vogue editrix makes Queen’s New Year Honours list and is knighted
American “Vogue” Editor-in-Chief has been awarded Damehood. In the states, she has reigned as fashion royalty for quite some time, but now, Queen Elizabeth II has made it official, awarding Anna Wintour Damehood as part of the Queen’s New Year Honours list. In 2008, Wintour was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), so this was inevitable. With all her sartorial accomplishments, it’s no wonder she’s received such high honors, after all, she has launched careers of British designers such as Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. Even the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York recognize her contributions to fashion, naming their Costume Institute ‘The Anna Wintour Costume Center’ in 2014, after she raised more than $125 million for the wing.
