The semi-annual chaos that is New York Fashion Week has begun, and designers and fashionistas are deep in preparation mode.
Perhaps no one knows the ins and outs of Fashion Week better than Anna Wintour, longtime editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and artistic director at Conde Nast. Donning her trademark black Chanel sunglasses and perfectly styled bob, Wintour has been a fashion-show fixture for decades.
With an estimated annual salary of $2 million, Wintour leads the kind of lifestyle any fashionista would envy.
Wintour is originally from the UK and moved to New York in her 20s. After stints at Harper's & Queen, Harper's Bazaar, and Viva, Wintour took the helm at Vogue in 1988. At the time, the storied fashion magazine had lost some market share to rival Elle, and its focus had shifted slightly to include lifestyle coverage.
Under Wintour, Vogue reestablished itself as the dominant American fashion magazine.
Wintour has now attended more than 3,000 fashion shows on behalf of Vogue. She has an annual clothing budget that's rumored to be as much as $200,000.
