This book puts together some of the pieces of the myth of Anna Wintour. It would be great to have a sequel that goes up through now. In a book by Tim Gunn, there was a reference to Anna.... and a very interesting one at that. The sort of eccentric behaviors that she exhibits in social settings would be great material for another book.

Jerry Oppenheimer’s book about Anna Wintour is very informing about the Vogue editor. The book was written in 2005 and without the consent of Anna Wintour. Oppenheimer used many sources close to Anna in both personal and business. Many people were fired over the publication of this book, because it exposed the real Anna. Oppenheimer wrote about many of the demands that Anna wanted and the things she always looked for. In the first chapter, it show how demanding Anna really is and how far she will go to get what she wants. As the book progresses, it tells the story of how Anna worked her way up to being the editor at Vogue. Along the way, there were many people she stepped on to get to her position. She can easily be seen as some to hate, but her story of becoming an editor is to intriguing. In some ways Anna’s life can be seen as being easy, but Oppenheimer points out that it isn’t. He reveals Anna’s flaws of being once a do-gooder, to in a sense as becoming a mean girl. Oppenheimer’s writing in mediocre. His writing is dry and distant, with some inserts of awkward jokes. He covers about a chapters worth of her history and almost no information about her current family or children. There are some pictures of Anna that are helpful in identifying people in the book. Oppenheimer seems to be more interested in the cattiness of the fashion world, than about Anna. Overall, I would recommend this book for finding information about Vogue’s top editor and her story. The book was informing and did show the true side of the fashion world and how cruel it can be.

I love fashiom so it was very cool to read aboit one of my role models, anna wintour. I think she is just a very buisness like person, and that shes not as mean as everyone thinks. I hope one day to be as succesful as her. I mean, if you are that succesful, you dont have to be kind and loving.
