Current editor-in-chief of Vogue, preceded by Grace Mirabella.

Wintour was born November 3, 1949 in London. Her father was Charles Wintour, a former editor of the Evening Standard. When she was hired as EIC of American Vogue, she had already headed British Vogue and Home and Garden. She is noted for her support of wearing fur, her work raising money for AIDS charities, and the widely-held belief that she is an icy bitch. Her nickname is "Nuclear Wintour".

A former assistant of hers, Lauren Weisberger, wrote "The Devil Wears Prada", a story of a poor executive assistant who is tortured by her cruel and exacting boss: the Editor-in-Chief of a fashion magazine known as "Runway". It was made into a lovely film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. At the premier, Wintour wore Prada.
