Rumour has it, fashion’s ‘ice queen’ Anna Wintour is set to leave her job as Vogue Editor-in-Chief after 30 years.
According to Page Six, the iconic artistic director and Vogue editor in chief will depart Vogue and Condé Nast in the middle of the year following the wedding of her daughter Bee Shaffer and her soon-to-be husband, the son of former Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani, Francesco Carrozzini.
The timing also means Wintour will wrap up her work on the magazine’s iconic September issue before she steps aside.
Born in London, Wintour began her career in the U.S. as a junior fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar in New York in 1975, before joining Vogue 1986 as the magazine’s first creative director, and was then made editor-in-chief in 1988.
In 2013, Condé Nast named her artistic director across all their publications, including, Vanity Fair, Allure and Glamour magazines.
Vogue UK Editor Edward Enninful’s name has been mentioned as a potential replacement.
However, a Vogue representative said Wintour isn’t going anywhere.
“There’s zero truth to the story,” the spokesperson told the Cut.
Condé Nast also denied that Wintour was leaving the company. “There’s no truth to this report,” a spokesperson for the media company said.
