Anna Wintour is number one. Forbes Magazine has named Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour fashion’s most powerful editor. Taking into account each US based fashion magazine’s number of unique web visitors, advertising revenue from 2009 and 2008, the number of each magazine’s actual advertising pages, circulation and number of name searches conducted for each editor, Forbes was able to discern what fashionistas the world over already know. Roberta Myers at Elle, and Glamour’s Cindi Leive round out the top three but there could hardly have been any doubt that Anna Wintour would be named the most powerful editor in fashion.
