>> Is Anna Wintour the Original Catalyst for Stylists' Current Fame and Fortune? Vogue and Style.com contributor Sarah Mower thinks so.  Twenty years ago, she says, a stylist's job consisted of “being the handmaiden. Literally on her knees, picking up the pins from the floor. It all changed in the late 1980s, when the names of fashion editors were put on magazine pages. Anna Wintour did it when she first came to edit British Vogue, because she believed they deserved acknowledgement for their work. Then, in the age of the supermodel, the fashion show became a huge great production. You’d sit at a fashion show, and say, ‘Who is the stylist?’, as if that was the key.” [Times UK]
