BOSS WOMEN: ANNA WINTOUR


I watch a lot of fashion documentaries.  And yes I also watch The City and Kell On Earth every couple of years because they're just that good.  I'm going to do a post about my favourites soon, but to tide you over till then I recommend spending some time with Anna Wintour in the year 2000 when she was still a brunette, The September Issue was a long way away, and she wasn't obsessed with big floral prints.  Speaking of The September Issue it's lovely to not only see Anna all those years ago, but also how many of the same gang were at Vogue way back in 2000.  It shows that success is so often about building a strong team as much as it's about one person's vision.  She also tells the camera that she tries to be decisive even when she has no idea what she's doing as it's helpful for other people.  I'm going to try and do that more.  And of course she wakes up at 5.45 and plays tennis everyday blah blah blah.  I know a lot of that from when my sister worked for her and had to get her a steak every day, but that's a story for another time...
