Her clothing allowance is rumoured to be $200k a year. She’s maintained her immaculate bob cut since she was 15-years-old. Rarely stays at parties for longer than 20 minutes. And Meryl Streep’s portrayal as the cut-throat mag editor Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada is widely said to be based on her. We are, of course, talking about the powerhouse that is Anna Wintour.
Due to her outwardly frosty demeanour and aloofness, the editor-in-chief of American Vogue earned the nickname 'Nuclear Wintour'. Though fashion fans were offered a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the inner workings of Wintour’s world upon the 2009 release of The September Issue (she revealed her two children - Bea and Charles – are her ‘weakness’).
Though there is more to Wintour's story that did not make an appearence in the fashion docu-drama- which is now set to be chronicled on the small screen.
Variety reports that Bravo has ordered a six-hour, scripted TV series – titled All That Glitters - which will document the ‘rivalry’ between the US Vogue editor and former editor at Condé Nast’s Vanity Fair, Tina Brown in the ‘80s and early ‘90s.
According to Variety: ‘As both bold and driven women fight their way to the top of a male-dominated industry driven by greed and betrayal, they each find new paths to change the world around them — Tina, through the intersection of high-culture and celebrity, and Anna with an instinct for high fashion and emerging talent.’
The question on everyones lips: Who will step in to play the living legend of style? Watch this space.
