“Although the movie is set in the fashion world, most designers and other fashion notables avoided appearing as themselves for fear of displeasing U.S. Vogueeditor Anna Wintour, (“Nuclear Wintour”) who is widely believed to have been the inspiration for Priestly. Many designers allowed their clothes and accessories to be used in the film, making it the most expensively costumed film in history.Wintour later overcame her initial skepticism, saying she liked the film and Streep in particular……..”

Anna Wintour, OBE (born November 3, 1949) is the British-born editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. With her trademark pageboybob haircut and sunglasses, Wintour has become an institution throughout the fashion world, widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour”.”

“The current editor-in-chief of American Vogue is Anna Wintour, noted for her trademark bob and her practice of wearing sunglasses indoors. Since taking over in 1988, Wintour has worked to protect the magazine’s high status and reputation among fashion publications. In order to do so, she has made the magazine focus on new and more accessible ideas of “fashion” for a wider audience. This allowed Wintour to keep a high circulation while discovering new trends that a broader audience could conceivably afford.”
