As one of the biggest names in fashion, Anna Wintour is already fashion royalty, but Buckingham Palace has made it official. The Queen of England made British-born Wintour a dame this week, making her the literal definition of fashion royalty.Wintour was honored because of her services to fashion and journalism.
For the special occasion, Wintour wore a pink Chanel outfit (of course) with her trademark dark sunglasses. While her look was expectedly chic, the Chanel clothes did cause a few problems when it came time for the ceremonial pinning. A small fashion snafu took place when the Queen had trouble pinning the insignia to Wintour’s outfit.
“She couldn’t find where to put the brooch,” said Wintour to the BBC. Despite the minor hiccup, the ceremony went according to plan, so from now on, that’s Dame Anna Wintour to you.
