As all eyes turn to the street Style elite for their eccentric Fashion week wares, there’s another fashion force whose style, albeit more understated, never fails to impress: Anna Wintour. Far from being a slave to the trends, the editor in chief of Vogue—a position she’s held since 1988—is known for her classic style. Printed dresses with coordinating coats are considered her uniform, as is her signature sleek bob and, of course, those Chanel sunglasses. It’s a look that’s served her well for over 20 years, and one we’ve come to expect throughout the course of fashion month.
At every single show, there’s a front-row seat specifically reserved for Anna in the mere hope she’ll make an appearance. And when she does, which to her credit is very frequently, we can count on her to look impossibly chic. Needless to say, her decades of fashion week dedication shouldn’t go unnoticed, which is why we’ve decided to document her best-ever front-row looks, from the first snapped sighting of her sitting pride of place in 1994 all the way up to, well, yesterday. You know what to do. Keep scrolling to see Anna Wintour’s fashion week outfits.
