Anna Wintour Puts on Perhaps Her Most Important Dress Ever

May 6 2014 - 8:00am

With a job like hers, Anna Wintour is no stranger to glamorous outfits that are guaranteed to impress. Still, with this year's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [1] marking the official big christening of the Anna Wintour Costume Center Exhibition, we can't be wrong in thinking that her gown was extra important. Whether or not you agree, scroll through to see all the styles we've seen Vogue's editor in chief select for the lauded event since 1988 (including all that custom Chanel).
