It’s hard not to get inspired by #ThrowbackThursday—the nostalgic viral hashtag that has Instagram and Twitter constantly posting old-school photos of, well, pretty much anything. That said, we’ve decided to contribute in our own small way by bringing you a quick throwback picture or video of one of our favorite fashion personalities or celebrities—way before they hit it big.
With Monday’s Met Gala celebrating the museum’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, who better to be this week’s #ThrowbackThursday subject than Anna Wintour, one of the event’s high-profile organizers and the woman at the helm of Vogue?
Long before Wintour was one of the most influential forces in the fashion world, she was a fashion-obsessed British girl who was the daughter of Charles Wintour, an influential editor of the London Evening Standard. We guess the whole “groundbreaking journalist” thing runs in the family!
These days, Wintour is a front-row fixture at fashion shows around the globe—and so is her trademark bob. In the retro photo above (taken in 1970), Anna still had a penchant for closely cropped hair with a thick fringe of bangs, but it was a bit longer and a bit darker—proving she’s always been a creature of habit.
What do you think of this week’s #ThrowbackThursday? Let us know which celebrity you’d like us to feature next week!
