The British Fashion Council has announced that Anna Wintour OBE will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2014 British Fashion Awards. The iconic, brilliantly-bobbed Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue and Artistic Director of Condé Nast will be honoured for her contribution to fashion at the ceremony at the London Coliseum on 1st December. As well as a career heading up magazines, Wintour has mentored emerging designers and raised substantial funds for AIDS research and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who named a wing after her earlier this year. Christopher Bailey, Christopher Kane, Sarah Burton and Natalie Massanet have all paid tribute to one of fashion's most famous faces.
