Here’s a picture I took of Anna this year at fashion week in New York. She scares me, to be perfectly honest. After shaking out a “May I take your picture please, Anna?” She half smiles and nods at me, while I, and at least 15 other people start flashing away madly, before her bodyguard stepped in front of my frame, signalling the end of the photo session. Anna is a powerful women, but I don’t think anyone really realises how powerful she really is until they are in the same room as her, watching her work.
Happy Birthday Anna, and may you continue to terrify and inspire all those around you.
