Now, thanks to MasterClass, you can gain unprecedented access to Wintour’s expertise in creativity and leadership. Launching today, Wintour’s 12 classes are available at MasterClass or on the MasterClass app, and draw on her 30+ years as editor-in-chief of the magazine. “I know many people are curious about who I am and how I approach my work,” she says. “This is a class for those who want to understand my leadership style and then understand the experiences that have helped me become an effective leader.”
If you’re intrigued by Wintour’s editorial eye, her advice for emerging designers, or the idea of peeking behind the curtain at 2019’s Met Gala, this in-depth series will provoke much thought. Listen as Wintour shares her thoughts on developing a creative vision, recognizing talent, making tough decisions, and owning who you are, without apology. Go behind the scenes of a key post-Fashion Week meeting or delve into the specifics of her tenure’s historic moments, including 2014’s “controversial” Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West cover, and May 1989’s surprising—to some—Madonna cover.
