the art of seeking out the best in magazines

The Woman Before Anna Wintour

In Fashion on April 8, 2009 at 4:27 am


This month Vogue catches up with Polly Mellen, THE veteran of the fashion industry. At 84, she is now retired after a 28-year career as a Fashion Editor at Vogue, and most recently, having left her final post as Creative Director at Allure. Alone with her husband Henry, she still keeps busy practicing pilates daily, cooking organic meals and reading all of the classics that she never had time for at her Kent, Connecticut, farmhouse. A well-lived life, I’d say.
