The most famous lady in fashion is celebrating her birthday today! Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour turns 65 years old on November 3rd.

Wintour’s experience in fashion editorial began in 1970, when she became an editorial assistant for Harper’s & Queen in England. Her career choices landed her at publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Viva and then, eventually Vogue, where she became editor-in-chief in 1998. Throughout her time at Vogue, she has made some serious impact on the magazine and the fashion industry. She was even responsible for naming Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North.  And although she is known for her unimpressed facial expressions and her honest quips, Wintour has proven that her good taste is something to be reckoned with. In honor of her birthday, and all of her influence, we’ve rounded up seven Anna Wintour quotes, to help inspire you the next time you’re picking out an outfit. Scroll through, and enjoy!

anna wintour quotes

It’s very important to me that I look good when I go out publicly. I like looking at my clothes rack in the morning and deciding what to pick out. I enjoy fashion.

Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others

It’s all about timing. If it’s too soon, no one understands. If it’s too late, everyone’s forgotten.

Fashion goes in only one direction – forward – and I am a firm believer in thinking that way too.

“Fashion is not beautiful, neither is it ugly. Why should it be either? Fashion is Fashion”

“You either know fashion or you don’t.”

“There is something about fashion that can make people really nervous.”
