anna wintour hair then and now

...anna wintour circa 1970's...

Anna Wintour, the editor of the American fashion magazine Vogue is a recognizable person all over the world, with her trademark bob and bangs haircut, which I always assumed was a wig (well it could still be a wig) due to its unnatural thickness. The other day I ran across this photo of Anna from the 1970's and I am more than ever unsure about if she wears a wig. This photo kind of suggests otherwise as it displays her hair being rather think and she already wears her trademark bangs, back then. If it were trimmed at the ends to chin level, it would be the Anna Wintour hair of 2011!

Well, I guess who cares if it's a wig or not, the style works for her and she knows it!

I don't know if it's a wig or not but it stays in shape even in the shittiest London weather. I'm jealous!

I know, right? The other day she was on the cover of the Upper West side Journal mag, a side shot, her hair was so tidy... not sure how she does it, I would have to catch her on the fly in the city sometime to see how it looks in reality... oh, well!

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
