Anna Wintour's New York prints

These are supposed to be early spreads from Anna Wintour while she worked in New York before jumping to Vogue. In her unathorized biography, Wintour's work is described as cutting edge and well ahead of trends. These spreads, although fabulous in their own right given the time published, leave me wondering more about Wintour's work. It is known that working with her might not be so easy, but I wonder what happened when she was just another one of the bunch. The biography was enlightening and I'm just wishing I could see more.

I do have to say that as the 80s are making a comeback, I find myself wanting to wear some of the pieces on these spreads. My favorite is the last picture. I love the dress.
