Glamorous "Vogue" magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the most powerful style-maker in the world. She influences designers, wholesalers, and retailers globally from Seventh Avenue to the elegant enclaves of L:Avenue Montaigne. And every month millions of "Vogue" readers turn the pages of the chic and trendy style wish book that she has controlled with an iron hand in a not always so velvet glove. Now in her mid fifties, as she nears her remarkable quarter century at the helm of "Vogue", comes this revealing biography that will shock and surprise both Anna's fans and detractors alike. Based on scores of interviews, "Front Row" chronicles the insecure and creative climb of this powerhouse to the top of the bitchy, competitive fashion magazine world, exposing for the first time how she artfully crafted and reinvented herself along the way.

Review quote

"Gleefully vicious biography of a New York fashion icon." --Kirkus

"The revealing unauthorized biography unveils the Anna Wintour even those closest to her don't know....If you liked The Devil Wears Prada, get your gossip fill with Front Row...we couldn't put it down." --Complete Woman

"Better than fiction." --New York Post

"For inquiring minds, it's a juicy, tabloidesque read." --Houston Chronicle

"A fast-paced biographical romp... Mr. Oppenheimer uses Front Row to ladle out dish--just as he did in Just Desserts, his 1997 biography of Martha Stewart. What he serves up is pretty juicy." --New York Observer

"Filled with gossip and scandals and peppered with celebrity names and tales...[A] fascinating read about one of the great queen-bee bosses and her mission to determine and define fashion." --Booklist

"Schadenfreude enthusiasts will enjoy Oppenheimer's latest, Front Row, which offers Anna Wintour in extreme close-up." --Los Angeles Times
