Order of the British Empire

Anna Wintour Legion d’ Honneur

I'm a sucker for all things relating to Ms.Wintour. I read a couple of months ago in WWD that she had been appointed the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, a high honor in the U.K. She received the award for her services to British journalism and fashion in America. This includes her work as EIC as well as her involvement in supporting the British fashion industry. 
This comes in addition to her position on the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, which she was appointed to in 2009 by Obama, and her Legion d’Honneur award which was awarded to her in 2011 by Nicolas Sarkozy. As impressive as the award itself was, what was equally impressive was that she was wearing Chanel Couture which had literally walked down the runway the day before. 
Maybe she'll start wearing the pin around town.

I hope for a new documentary from her :)
