Vogue editor-in-chief is such a force in the fashion world that the magazine’s publisher, Conde Nast, has promoted her to artistic director of the company’s other titles and websites.
According to The Associated Press, Conde Nast CEO Charles H. Townsend made the announcement today. Wintour, 63, will now be charged with creating the overall “creative vision: for the company’s 18 magazine titles. Conde Nast also publishes the New Yorker, GQ, Vanity Fair, Allure and Glamour.
Townsend said the role will “leverage Anna's extraordinary vision and leadership.”
Forbes reports that this is a brand new job at the company and will continue speculation that she will step down from her day-to-day duties at Vogue. However, the AP notes that Conde Nast said that she will continue working at Vogue and as editorial director for Teen Vogue.
Wintour has worked at Vogue since 1988 and launched Teen Vogue in 2003. She is a member of President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and was a major supporter during the campaign. There were even rumors that Obama would pick her as an ambassador to the U.K. or France. Forbes notes that she reportedly makes $2 million a year at Vogue.
