Au Revoir Anna?

The New York Post reports in Page Six:
Vogue editrix Anna Wintour - who also oversees Fashion Rocks, Teen Vogue and, until recently, Men's Vogue - is mulling retirement. "Her contract is up soon," an insider said. "She's thinking of retiring. She feels she's done it all and had enough. She has been putting out feelers to intimate friends recommending a possible replacement to S.I. Newhouse. She's so tired out, she just let Men's Vogue close instead of fighting for it."

If this rumour is true what will this mean for the fashion world? Anna Wintour is currently 59 years old; the same age as former editor Grace Mirabella was when she was edged out by Anna to bring more of a fashion focus back to Vogue. Wintour is credited for discovering numerous fashion designers such as John Galliano, Marc Jacobs and Thom Browne, before they were famous. She is also thought to be the editor whom The Devil Wears Prada book is modelled after. Only time will tell what will happen next. Whoever it is that comes after her, I'm sure they'll have some big shoes to fill.
