Yesterday was a much celebrated birthday for American Vogue's Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. She received the prestigious honor of being on President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. She joins other prominent artists and entertainment figures who achieve the ideals of the economic revitalization of the arts.
Though to many, Wintour is just a force to be reckoned with in fashion, she has shown that her influence filters throughout the community. Through Vogue and its spin-offs, she has set the agenda for the fashion industry through events and charity funds such as the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. An event like this influences the cultural life of New York and provides tangible support for rising new talent.
All in all, happy 60th birthday Anna!
