er political views have also been well documented,
especially her support toward Hillary Clinton when Clinton
was a presidential candidate. According to CNN Style, Anna
said, “I think it’s very, very important to have a point of view,
and we profile women in the magazine that we believe in.” She
continued by stating that after Secretary Clinton was defeated in
the 2016 presidential election, “…we believe that women should
have a leadership position and we intend to support them.”
Though she is open to the public about her values and
opinions, Anna is incessantly scrutinized by the public, and her
image and private life have endlessly aroused intrigue throughout
her awe-inspiring career. A significant part of her reputation, and
a prominent feature to her image, is her emblematic sunglasses.
She explains that she wears sunglasses to defend herself against the
public’s efforts to deconstruct her. For Anna, her sunglasses are
“incredibly useful because you avoid people knowing what you’re
thinking about,” augmenting the mythification of her character.
Her physical appearance is also often critiqued, with comments
proclaiming that she is too thin. According to CNN Style, Anna
said, “Sometimes there has been a certain level of personal criticism
directed at me that, possibly, might not have been (used against) a
man in a similar position.” Despite this, she expresses that being a
woman has never given her the impression of feeling disadvantaged.
Anna Wintour is a strong, decisive woman to be reckoned
with in the luxury and high-end sector of the fashion industry.
Standing up for what she believes in, she possesses the power
to influence her audiences with her views on sustainability and
diversity as she goes forth toward the future at the helm of Vogue.
