US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, received an honour from The Queen and was made a Dame at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace last week.

Wintour was honoured in the diplomatic and overseas honours list for services to fashion and journalism.

She attended the ceremony with her daughter, Bee Schaffer, and wore a pink Chanel coat and nude Manolo Blahnik heels for the occasion, later revealing that the Queen struggled to pin the Dame Commander insignia to her coat.

Wintour, born in London, said about receiving the award: “Obviously this is a city that I grew up in, a city that I have so much affection and love for. It’s always wonderful to get an award, but this one is extra special.”

She also thanked the queen and said: “I congratulated her on Prince Philip’s service because obviously that’s so remarkable and such an inspiration to us all.”

Other members of the royal family mentioned by Wintour after the ceremony included the Duchess of Cambridge, who she praised for her style and charm.

Wintour, 67, is one of the longest serving editors of Vogue, having spent nearly 30 years running the magazine.
