Anna Wintour DBE is a fashion news icon and the editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988 who has made a name for herself in the fashion industry. With her success, Wintour has become one of the most influential figures among her peers, but how much does she actually earn?

The fashion icon’s career began when she was 15 when her father, who worked as the editor of the London Evening Standard for nearly 20 years, got her a job at Bib boutique, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

She worked her way up and landed her position as Vogue’s editor-in-chief in 1988, the outlet said. Wintour’s net worth was a result of her steady work with Vogue as the company’s first creative director, earning $50,000 per year during the early ‘80s. Currently, Wintour has an estimated net worth of $50 million.

As of 2020, Wintour has a reported annual salary of $2 million for being Vogue’s editor-in-chief, according to Business Insider. She was also reported to have had a $200,000 clothing allowance in 2014, as per Heavy. Wintour’s employer also paid for her professional hair and makeup and provided her with company cars with garage parking in Manhattan as perks.

The editor-in-chief is also involved with many charities, serving as a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. With her in charge of organizing benefits, she has helped raise more than $50 million. She even helped the annual Met Gala in raising more than $175 million in 2019 as the perennial host and chair of the event.

The fashion icon owns a summer home in Mastic, New York and a residence at 172 Sullivan Street, New York. The latter is a four-story building built in 1899, as per StreetEasy.

After the fatal events of 9/11, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund was launched to help breed the next generation of American fashion designers, Vogue reported. In 2020, Wintour announced the partnership between Vogue and the CFDA that would repurpose the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. The program would become a supporting entity for members of the fashion community who have been severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
