for anna {wintour}.

On this day in 1949, the current fearless {and somewhat maligned} editor of American Vogue, Anna Wintour, was born in London. So we pay tribute to the fashionista to end all fashionistas with a very special birthday play list. {Our own fearless leader is also named Anna, but her disposition is decidedly sunnier.}

1. "Anna" - The Beatles
Not sure if the lyrics have anything to do with A-Dubbs's love life, but her name is in the chorus. So track number one, it shall be.
2. "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" - Marilyn Monroe + Jane Russell
Because she's blonde.
3. "I Wear My Sunglasses at Night" - Corey Hart
And because she wears sunglasses. All the time.
4. "Devil's Haircut" - Beck
The devil wears Prada and has the bob to match.
5. "Vogue" - Madonna
Well, obviously.
6. "Chanson pour Anna" - Paul Mauriat
Another titled piece for Ms. Wintour.
7. "Love + Tears" - Naomi Campbell
A little known entrant from a supermodel who's had her share of {rumored} run-ins with the editrix.
8. "Mambo #5" - Perez Prado
This little ditty came out the year she was born, though Anna Wintour likely doesn't do the mambo on the regular.
9. Chanel No. 5 Commercial
And we'll leave you with this stylized Chanel "movie," brought to you by the fashion house that regularly clothes the birthday girl. Many happy and stylish returns of the day, A.W.!
