Anna: The Biography

Anna: The Biography
$29.99

Roxanne says: Anna Wintour is a force to be reckoned with and Amy Odell’s new biography has delicious fun doling out her life story.  Anna’s traversing such a cut throat industry and yet always landing on her feet is in itself a feat as she climbed the ranks to be the editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine.  While Wintour’s candid no-nonsense approach certainly angered some, her talent and vision make for excellent reading especially in our ever growing Sarasota couture culture.

This definitive biography of Anna Wintour follows the steep climb of an ambitious young woman who would--with singular and legendary focus--become one of the most powerful people in media.

As a child, Anna Wintour was a tomboy with no apparent interest in clothing but, seduced by the miniskirts and bob haircuts of swinging 1960s London, she grew into a fashion-obsessed teenager. Her father, an influential newspaper editor, loomed large in her life, and once he decided she should become editor-in-chief of Vogue, she never looked back.

Impatient to start her career, she left high school and got a job at a trendy boutique in London--an experience that would be the first of many defeats. Undeterred, she found work in the competitive world of magazines, eventually embarking on a journey to New York and a battle to ascend, no matter who or what stood in her way. Once she was crowned editor-in-chief of Vogue--in one of the stormiest transitions in fashion magazine history--she continued the fight to retain her enviable position, ultimately rising to dominate all of Condé Nast.

Based on extensive interviews with Anna Wintour's closest friends and collaborators, including some of the biggest names in fashion, journalist Amy Odell has crafted the most revealing portrait of Wintour ever published. Weaving Anna's personal story into a larger narrative about the hierarchical dynamics of the fashion industry and the complex world of Condé Nast, Anna charts the relentless ambition of the woman who would become an icon.
