Condé Nast artistic director
Anna Wintour cements influence as
Condé Nast’s new artistic director
Famous Vogue editor takes on first of its kind
role at publishing empire and ends speculation
over role in Obama administration.
Anna Wintour , the famous editor of Vogue, is already
the most powerful figure in the fashion world, but now
she is set to wield even more influence after being named
artistic director for the entire Condé Nast publishing empire.
The move ends months of speculation that Wintour was set
to mark the 25th anniversary of her reign at Vogue by landing
a job as ambassador to Britain or France or even take up a
roving cultural role for the US government.
Instead, Wintour, 63, is going to cement her position in
Condé Nast, extending her influence and sense of style
throughout the entire company which also includes such
staples of American life as the New Yorker and Vanity Fair.
