Today, we wish a very happy birthday to Vogue's formidable editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. We decided to pay tribute with a collection of GIFs that celebrate those qualities that make Anna Anna — even if they also happen to terrify us.
Anna's unwavering certainty (even if she's faking it), at-all-costs perfectionism, all-seeing critical eye, and that precision-cut bob — the same things that make assistants quake in their Chloé heels — make her the most powerful, no-nonsense editor in fashion. Never change, Anna.
Ahead, 11 times Anna just did not have time for basics.
