Anna (1949). Editor-in-chief of Vogue America. Born in London. She began her career in 1970 as a fashion editor for Harpers Queen. In 1976, she moved to the United States to became fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar. After a time at New York Magazine, as editor of the fashion and lifestyle sections, in 1983 she became the creative director of Vogue America. Three years later, she went back to London to become editor-in-chief of British Vogue. In November 1987, she published a memorable cover, which has since become part of the classical iconography of fashion: the model Christy Turlington dressed by Calvin Klein and photographed by David Bailey. In 1988 she returned to New York as editor-in-chief of Vogue America. In 1990, she was named “Editor of the Year” by Adweek for her unorthodox approach to fashion journalism and for her “imprint of fantasy in the realm of perfection.” She had become one of the most powerful women in the world of fashion. Glacial, thread-thin in a sort of uniform (often a Chanel tailleur), impeccable, with enormous dark sunglasses, she has a steely personality, both at work and in her private life. She lives in Manhattan, and she gets up every morning at dawn to play tennis before going to work, dressed perfectly. She has two children by her first husband, David Schaffer, the chief of children’s psychiatry at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
