Queen names Anna Wintour a dame

Britain’s monarch has met a queen of the fashion world, as Vogue editor Anna Wintour was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth

A lot can be said of Anna Wintour, both good and horrible.  I mean the film Devil Wears Prada made little effort to disguise her as their muse.  But opinions aside, she is iconic and renowned for her work.

Wintour was made a dame — female equivalent of a knight — for services to fashion and journalism in a Buckingham Palace ceremony on Friday.

The UK-born editor arrived wearing her ever-present sunglasses, but removed them before entering the palace ballroom.

She said afterward that the queen had struggled to find a place to pin the insignia on Wintour’s pink belted Chanel outfit.

Wintour said she also congratulated the queen on Prince Philip’s long public service, calling him “an inspiration to us all.”
